What does a car restoration cost?

Inevitably, and understandably, this is almost always the first question we hear from individuals considering a car restoration. Unfortunately, it’s also the hardest question for us to answer. The reason? Car restoration costs vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle, and it’s nearly impossible to provide an accurate estimate without an in-depth inspection of your vehicle.

There are 2 factors that will most likely affect your vehicle’s restoration cost:

  • The current condition of your vehicle. This matters not only for cosmetic reasons, but also for mechanical reasons. For example, the cost to restore a ‘67 Chevy that’s been sitting in your backyard for the last 20 years will be significantly more than restoring that same ‘67 Chevy that’s being used as a daily means of transportation.
  • Your restoration goals. What are you looking to achieve by restoring your vehicle? Restoration goals vary greatly from person to person. A simple cosmetic “facelift”, for example, will cost significantly less than a full cosmetic and mechanical restoration.
  • Determining an accurate cost estimate involves an intense, 4-hour vehicle inspection. Though it’s nearly impossible to guarantee an accurate estimate without inspecting your vehicle in person, we can provide you with a more accurate estimate by finding out more about your restoration goals and the vehicle’s current condition. We’d love for you to give us a call so we can get the conversation started.
