CLASSIC & COLLECTOR CAR PREMIUM RESTORATION

WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY STANDARDS

THE DONOR CAR

The original car to start the project with is always a rust free and straight car, as complete as possible to guaranty the originality of some important parts, such as the interior wood panels or the bumpers which could be a lower quality when remanufactured. Cars are sourced in California or other favorable dry climates (lack of salt used on roads during winter)

THE RESTORATION

The full classic & collector car restoration process will take 10 to 15 months and a total of 1.500 to 3.000 hours of labor of the various craftsmen (Body workers, Painters, Mechanics, Electricians, Veneerers, Trimmers, Fitters…).

In Auto Storica we do have all these craftsmen in our own staff team and the restorations are run without any subcontracting process. This is, in fact, the only way to optimize the step by step quality control and fully guaranty the final result.
