The restoration process is complex and requires a significant amount of time to complete correctly. The first step in the process, after the initial interest is expressed, is a full evaluation of the car. This is completed at our shop by Tony and usually requires from 3 to 5 hours. This comprehensive evaluation is extremely important to set the baseline condition of the car and to determine your expectations as well as the extent of the work required. A “ball park” estimate is generally offered and a time set for the car to be brought in. Once started, the progress continues until completion. We do not hold cars for years to be restored!!!!! You are invited frequently to come to the shop and review our progress—by appointment please. The average restoration takes about 7 to 12 months, often more if the original condition of the car is significantly deteriorated. During the restoration, you will make progress payments at least monthly or on demand if the progress is quicker. Each stage of the restoration is documented with digital photos in print as well as on disk.

Our restoration record is flawless! We have achieved over 250 NCRS TOP FLIGHT & Bloomington Gold Awards -- all on their first presentations. Due to our success and reputation, our schedule is usually booked for at least a year in advance.
