CLASSIC & COLLECTOR CAR 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 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.
The process starts with a meticulous disassembling and stripping of the whole car, inspecting all its components, down to the bare body shell and/or chassis.
Hood frame reconstruction and adjustments. New high quality hood & covers (Mohair, Everflex…). All original colors available.
New complete electrical wiring loom. Electronic ignition. Electrical fan kit. “HP Facet” o “SU electronic” fuel pump. Rebuilding and calibrating of all gauges, instruments and controls. New switches. Rebuilt or new electrical components (Dynamo, Alternator, Starter motor, Wiper motor etc…)
