1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000
This much loved GTV is being restored to better-than-new with many upgrades, both mechanically and cosmetically. The owner is a real Alfa fan and has been laying his plans for quite some time. Stay tuned for a custom interior, subtle clean ups of the body, all prior to some high tech engine work being prepared at another highly respected Alfa Romeo shop.
1968 Mustang Fastback Resto Mod
Our customer has been talking to us for some time about building a special 1968 Mustang. He had one many years ago, but he wants this one to be a unique build to him. As a long time Jaguar owner, including both an E and F Type, he knows about classic styling and modern performance. This car was purchased as a stalled restoration and had many pieces already purchased. We will be using some Shelby based styling pieces, but generally keeping the traditional good looks and styling of the original car. Follow the build here and on Facebook!
1955 Austin Healey 100-4 Le Mans
This car was started back in 2010 and got stored when the owner fell ill. John recently bought the project from him. It was pretty far along and needed to be assembled and finished. The chassis, body and driveline is finished, but needs suspension, brakes, interior, and paint. Most of the items to finish the car are on order and we see a pretty quick build coming here. Black over red with red interior and a full Le Mans package. Lots of performance pieces hidden under the beautiful bodywork, brakes, suspension, steering, Dunlop wheels and more!
1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia
This sparkling Spider had been the object of affection of a friend of ours for many years, and he decided to let us finish up his little jewel. There are always just a few things that we can do, simply because we do them all of the time. We look forward to hearing of their adventures.
1965 Jaguar E-Type Coupe
This lovely coupe was painted the lovely gun metal grey color here a few years back and has been patiently awaiting it’s new red interior. The car has received a fresh engine and drive train rebuild, as well as a complete exterior restoration. The car belonged to the owner’s father and will stay in the family. We’re proud to help keep it rolling.
1963 Austin Healey BJ7
This car was purchased on an auction site and delivered sight unseen. The car ran and drove, but needed a significant amount of mechanical attention once we got it here. It will be receiving a valve job, suspension and transmission rebuild, as well as some structural chassis attention and detailing. We expect a positive outcome for this really nice customer.
1989 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider
A friend of John’s inquired as to the cost of resurrecting this car from a long sleep to sell. After a few conversations they decided that it would be best to be bought for the shop and we would do the work internally as a loaner or Rideshare car. It’s currently being slowly brought back to a neat, clean, and reliable condition.
1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta “Barchetta”
This owner, a well respected Alfa racer, has been dreaming up his perfect street car for years. We are building him his vision of a true driver’s car, sans most customary street trim. The color is a period custom color and the body has undergone an extensive restoration. This is one special car!
1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce
Owned by a long-time friend and member of North Suburban Sports Car Club, Ross Fosbender, John bought this car from his wife Cheryl in 2019. A mishap many years ago sent the car to the garage where it was parked for some time. This car is # 853 out 1,019 produced that year. It will be returned to grey with a red interior and a black cloth top.
1960 MGA 1600
This car was found by Ken and rescued for restoration attention. Affectionately known as the $500.00 MGA (as the owner was just happy to get it out of her back yard) the body of this car was very straight and no major chassis work was needed. The stock wood floors helped. It will be returned back to black with a red interior and grey top and tonneau.
1967 Austin Healey 3000 BJ8
This Healey came from Kansas City and is being treated to a full restoration. The engine has been rebuilt but the body sat for quite some time and needs a fair amount of love. Surprisingly, the car must have been rust-proofed as there are plugs in the chassis and the frame is in very good shape. The intent is to keep it BRG. Follow along as we go!
1965 Series 1 Jaguar E-Type
This car languished in a body shop for over eight years. The body was rust free, but had been severely abused by attempts to remove the paint. An attempted V8 transplant ruined the bird cage, and necessitated replacement. The car is finished in an original dark blue and will sport a British tan interior. An engine rebuild is in process.
1963 Austin Healey BJ7 Race Car
This project started out with a twin car being built by John and the Sport and Specialty founder Mark Baker. The intent was to build special cars engineered along the lines of the 1960s Sebring racers. After John took over the business he traded his project for a Caterham 7 and stored this car until his other projects were completed. This car will be finished in Aston Martin racing green and be a track only car boasting many high-performance modifications.
