Bring Your Classic Back to Life

Bring Your Classic Back to Life

At Contey Custom Performance, we don’t “fix up old cars”: with our classic car restorations in New Jersey, we bring automotive classics back to life.

If you’ve just found a project car you’d like to restore—or if, after many years, you’re ready to pull the cover off your classic car and finally make her new again—let’s talk. We understand just how much that car means to you. The classic cars we love most are usually ones built when we were kids. Perhaps as a teenager, you always wanted one, but you couldn’t afford it. Then came kids, and responsibilities . . . but now maybe your kids are grown, and you realize that same car still turns your head, still stirs up something inside you, takes you back in time in a joyful way. There is something magic about that car. We get that.

At Contey Custom Performance, it’s not just a car to us, either. We treat every classic car restoration like it’s our own.

Automotive Restoration Investment

Automotive Restoration Investment

We know that classic car restoration can be expensive, so it has to make investment sense. We are helped in this by a classic car market that is going through the roof, not just in New Jersey but across the world.

Even so, money still doesn’t grow on trees, and we get that. When you make the decision to restore your classic automobile, you’ll want to prepare by first determining your overall budget. Knowing your budget will help determine how far you’ll be able to go with your classic car restoration, and whether you might need to allow for some delays to build up funds and find used parts. Are there any elements of the restoration that you hope to do yourself? Is there a deadline for completing it? Do you plan to go completely original or uniquely you?

These questions can help determine the cost of your own classic car restoration, and we always work with your budget and timeline and make every attempt to keep costs manageable.
