RM Auto Restorations’ exhaustive understanding of the mechanical functions of vintage motor cars sets us apart. We can evaluate and, if needed, completely rebuild an engine. This can include rebuilding and recreation of any component necessary to make an engine perform better than new. In addition to engines, our qualified mechanics can rebuild transmissions, rear axles, brake systems and steering mechanisms of virtually any year, make and model. A full machine shop allows us to produce CAD drawings for water jet, laser cutting or any machining process, and our experienced machinists can produce custom components to exacting specifications.
Our state of the art chassis dynamometer allows us to fine tune an engine, verify horse power rating, check transmission and driveline operation and “road test” a vehicle in any weather condition allowing us to test and continue our restoration process all year round.
Obtaining parts for rare classics can be downright impossible for even the most knowledgeable collector. The experts in our parts department have worldwide networks of contacts and suppliers through which they can access even the most obscure parts, ensuring that the work our craftsmen complete is to the highest standards of model and period correctness.
Our well-equipped metal fabrication shop is staffed by master craftsmen with decades of experience in metallurgy and metal forming. These experts are capable of building complete body panels, fenders and frames with virtually invisible seams.
