A Resto-Mod (restoration with modifications) is similar to a complete restoration but with certain modifications or upgrades above what the factory offered. These can include engine upgrades, transmission conversions, brake or suspension upgrades, custom paint or any other modification that was not a stock option when the car was originally sold. When a car is restored as a resto-mod, the vehicle's value may be impacted positively or negatively depending on the demand or collectibility factor of the car. Do some research on your vehicle before deciding to move forward with a resto-mod - we are happy to assist you with the decision.
RESTOMOD & PRO-TOURING SPECIALISTS
Resto-Mods come in all shapes and sizes. It really depends on what you want to do with your car. For an original car of a desirable model or edition, with matching numbers drive-line, a resto-mod is not generally recommended. This might be a better candidate for a restoration back to original spec. We're happy to discuss the options with you. A common decision is to upgrade a vehicle's brakes and suspension in order to be safer and more up to speed with modern technology. Since modern technology has so much to offer an older vehicle, another popular upgrade is the retrofit of a later generation engine, transmission, or both. The look of the body can be as wild as custom fabricated panels, vents, lights, etc. or as simple as changing the paint color to one used on more modern cars.
