Restoration

 

We specialize in concours restoration of 65-70 Shelby and Mustangs. Whether Div 1/Thoroughbred or Div 2/ Concours our track record speaks for itself. Our cars win national titles at the highest level consistently, period. We have the credentials, we know the judges and we know where to get the parts. Whether you are going for the gold or you just want your car as correct as possible, we have the means. Over 40 years of experience, including judging credentials (SAAC concours judge, MCA gold card Shelby judge (through 2016), and Mid America head judge), our expert skills can get you there. Cars that were restored even 10 years ago are hardly competitive anymore due to the evolution of the knowledge and quality of the cars.

If concours isn’t your thing and you just need work or repair on your classic we can help. Not only have we worked on these cars seemingly forever, but I have the credentials of being NIASE certified (now ASE) since 1977 and understand the working systems of these 45+ year old beauties.

We also offer buyer inspection services if you are considering a purchase and even location services, if you have a particular car you want. These cars have become extremely valuable and it is cheap insurance to have an expert verify that “It is what it’s supposed to be.”

If you are restoring your own car we can assist. Whether component restoration, parts or bringing us in for personal consultation – we have you covered.
