Antique, Vintage, Exotic and Classic Automotive Restorations


The Fine Art of Collector & Classic Car Restorations

At City Classic Cars, restoration is a beautiful art form of car building that we master through Sabra Johnson's signature 25 Step Process. Whether the car will compete at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, SEMA Battle of the Builders, or be a daily driver, we handle every step of the restoration with careful diligence to obtain our clients' dream. 

The art of restoration requires unwavering attention to detail from design to delivery. For this reason, we complete each step of the build in-house. Many shops outsource steps like woodworking, upholstery, or paint, but those are all under our roof to ensure both quality and project timelines are kept intact.

Our philosophy of restoration leads to very clear priorities that properly serve the customer's needs. We make cars safe, functional, and beautiful, in that order. We do not compromise on our process, philosophy, or priorities and this has led to incredible builds that provide lasting satisfaction for our customers for years after the car leaves our facility. In this respect, Sabra believes there are two main restoration pathways: The Factory-Correct Restoration and The Custom Resto-Mod Restoration!

Further, City Classic Cars has two shops in one city with each location dedicated to a specific restoration build philosophy with locations in North Houston and West Houston. 

Restoration Pathways that Fit You

For many, the ideal restoration looks like getting your build back to the first time you saw it flipping through a magazine or on the showroom floor in factory correct display. We specialize in the process of getting your car as beautiful, or even more so, as the first day you saw it while making sure it has the safety and functionality to match your needs today. We restore imports, domestic, antique, vintage, exotic and classic projects with historical significance or sentimental value to the client.


There's something about owning a build that is unmistakably your own. It's a one-off, completely unique to you that will not be seen anywhere else. We specialize in the process of getting the ideas and dreams you've had on to paper and then into Resto-Mod eality. Everything from custom interiors and engines to metal fabrication and paint are all done under one roof to streamline the process of your custom Resto-Mod. Although we Resto-Mod imports and domestics, our concentration is on American Classics, Streetrods and Custom Trucks
