Phase - Partial Restorations

Partial or “phase” restorations are substantially faster and less expensive than a full restoration project. Oftentimes a customer has a power train that is acceptable, yet the suspension and body is faulty or maybe the body is acceptable while the interior of the vehicle may be badly damaged.  The restoration adage at City Classic Cars is that "We are building the car of your dreams not ours at your cost".  We are here to build your car on your budget.


Partial Restorations often fall into three main systems: Paint and Body, Engine and Performance and Upholstery and Trim Works


Rather than acquire a full frame-off restoration many clients go the route of a mini frame-up restoration by choosing two or more of the major areas above for refurbishing.
