Car Restoration Services

We are committed to providing the highest quality, detail-driven automobile restorations available in the industry. Our customer's cars are seen in magazines, on television, and winning top honors at national car show events. The quality speaks for itself and very loudly when you compare an MCR car to one restored by another shop. Our open workmanship policy and emphasis on keeping our customer's in-the-loop will let you rest at ease knowing that your valuable property is in good hands.

We offer several different levels of restoration:

Platinum Level Restorations

Do it once - Do it right! No stone is left unturned at this level and we spend as much time and resources as necessary to make certain all parts of the car function and appear perfect. At this level we utilize our most select services, products, and craftsmen to assure that the most thoroughly restored and protected vehicle possible is achieved. Exceeding customer expectations these past two decades is what has allowed us the repeat high profile customers and spare-no-expense experience we have today.

Have peace of mind knowing that the car will stand the tests of time due to the chemical stripping and e-coating that all projects at this level undergo. The paint finishes are dead flat and smooth, the gaps are uniform and the lines are sharp and crisp which all comes from the extra time we spend in the bodywork and metal phases. Literally hundreds of hours are spent on panel and trim fitment, panel straightening, sanding, priming and sealing. The underside of the car also receives extra attention in the metal, body work, and paint phases to ensure that the bottom of the car looks as good as the rest.

Once our craftsmen begin assembly, your car and all the parts have gone through 5 checkpoints to ensure the quality is up to MCR Platinum standards. Everything from the exterior trim to the interior gauges will have been either fully restored in-house or sent out to one of the many specialists we have come to trust over the years. By the time you take delivery, it will go through two more quality inspections as well as many hours of dyno tuning, road testing and safety inspections all to verify you will receive the absolute best car possible.

Here is a general overview of the steps involved with an MCR Platinum Level Restoration:

Driver Level Restorations

If you plan on driving your vehicle some what guilt-free, you may not want it to be perfect in all respects. Vehicles restored at this level stand out in shows as high quality vehicles but resources spent on certain areas would be minimized depending on your specific goals and expectations.

Some examples of our driver level restorations include this 1969 Dart GTS and this 1968 Roadrunner

Progressive Restorations

For those of you already enjoying a collector vehicle, and those years are starting to show, we offer our progressive restoration service. With this approach we set per-visit milestones for your specific restoration allowing you to maximize the amount of time you can enjoy your vehicle. All steps that are taken follow MCR's standard tried-and-tested procedures to ensure the highest quality.

Some examples of our progressive restorations include this 1970 AAR Cuda and this 1972 Challenger
