Commonly asked questions about classic car restoration

How much does it cost to restore a classic car?

There is no set budget for how much it will cost to restore your classic car. Restoration costs for a classic car will depend on how much work needs to be done on your car, and what degree of car restoration you’re interested in.

We founded Restoria Classics because of our love of working with all types of classic vehicles and especially British classic cars so we’ll always do our best to work within your budget. Where necessary, projects may need to be done in stages or changes made to your original plans to fit your budget. Our team will work with you to find a balance between your dream classic car and your budget.

How do you restore a classic car?

Restoring a classic car has a few stages. The first involves actually sourcing your classic car! For some, restoring a classic car has always been a dream, in which case we can help you source the perfect model. For others, they may have inherited a car from a relative they want to bring back to its best, or even have a car they’ve left neglected in the garage for a little too long!

Once you have your classic car, there needs to be a thorough inspection of the car to ensure you know what work needs to be done, both mechanical and cosmetic. This will help you know what classic car parts and paints need to be sourced. Our mechanics have many trusted contacts to help source parts for even the rarest of classic cars! We also offer classic car fabrication for those hard to find parts.

Then it’s time for the classic car restoration itself. While some people choose to do restoration work themselves, it can be risky as classic cars require a lot of experience. Our small team of skilled mechanics can either fully restore your car themselves, or work with you if you would like to be more actively involved in the process.

What is the cheapest classic car to restore?

How much it costs to repair a classic car relies on many factors, so it’s difficult to give an exact price. It will, generally, be cheaper to carry our classic car restoration on a car that is easy to source car parts for. Some rare cars can be difficult to source parts for, which can drive up the price. You’ll also need to consider how much work needs to be done on your car. If your car needs to be completely rebuilt, it will be more expensive than a cosmetic customisation project.
