RESTORATION

RESTORATION

Automobile restoration is the process of repairing the degraded aspect of a car to return it to an overall “authentic” condition. To renovate a car without updating or upgrading it by keeping in line with how it would have appeared when first offered for sale. Non-factory paint codes and even paint schemes, interior and chrome trim of the time period may be used if they were commonly shared between similar models of the era so as to look the part. Many restored cars may lose their original engines and have a similar capacity or model related engine installed.
