Makellos Classics Restoration Overview | Understanding Your Porsche’s Needs At Every Step
Minor or Major?
All restoration cars, whether minor to major, get stripped down to the body. From there we can further inspect the parts and frame of the vehicle and make a better plan on what must be done to bring the car back to life. This is where we can decide whether it will be a minor or major restoration project. Once this decision has been made, we begin the restoration process of the classic cars.
Common Restoration Services
While we have completed restorations on extremely rare vehicles which have ran well into six figures, the more common restoration in our shop is what we call the "local car show winner". Components that function would be refinished but not necessarily rebuilt. This kind of job may involve the use of reproduction parts including interior seat and panel kits. This type of restoration takes hundreds of hours and costs in the mid to high tens of thousands of dollars. The car would do very well (winning) in local shows and at car club functions.
Driver or Street ready
We are often asked to do what we consider to be a "driver level" build. These cars are mechanically sound and cosmetically attractive. Everything works as it is supposed to and the owner can be confident of returning home after an enjoyable day. The car looks good and an appreciative audience will always gather around wherever the car stops. Costs here are very dependent on the condition of the car. If the car is currently resting on four flat tires in a field, the prospects will be much different than one which has been garaged and pampered.
A continuation is a revival of a classic Porsche. This means thoroughly going through the car and bringing it back to its original form. In this process, Makellos Classics does a full inspection of the car and repairs mechanical and cosmetic issues that take away from the enjoyment of the vehicle.
