When it comes to restoring Classic cars. Our training, experience and intimate knowledge of vehical workings, allows us to know what’s required to make your classic car look, drive and perform as it did, if not better than, when it came off the production line.

No part is left untouched, everything from the air filters, to the differential, we thouroughly inspect, restore and replace what ever is required to ensure your car is nothing but perfect. We also ensure that all of the bolts, nuts and other unpainted parts are either reconditioned and renewed back to thier original form (zinc, chromate, nickel or chrome), or replaced with parts that exactly match thier original form.

We all know that with time, technology has improved vehical performance. Even a few years can make a big difference, we use this to our advantage, if you’re not building a concours car, but rather building the car to drive. We can upgrade parts such as,  larger brake conversions, gearbox swaps (auto to manual, or manual to auto), larger radiator and or electric fans to cope better with Australian summer conditions, power steering installations, or rack & pinion steering conversions, these are just a few things we can do to your car while closely retaining it’s original appearance. This will give you the best of both worlds, a better driving experience with that classic appearance that everyone loves.
