Mustang Restoration Considerations
Every Mustang restoration project is unique. Some can be more challenging than others. The condition and service history of your vehicle can have a significant impact on the time and cost of restoration.
Several factors can influence your Mustang restoration costs and budget:
- the year, model, and condition of your Mustang
- your restoration goals (customize, sell, show, exhibition, etc.)
- availability of replacement parts vs. fabrication needs
Market Value Factors
Our team understands that a car’s market value is a factor in any restoration project. For example, restoration of a Fox platform Mustang in fair to good condition might be equal to or higher than a car’s current market value. This can also be true for Aero models from the late 1980s and into the very early 1990s.
A first generation model Shelby GT500 with matching numbers may require similar levels of repair. However, because these models often have a much higher market value, owners find it easier to make the investment in a restoration of the quality we provide.
Rare and vintage Mustangs like a low mileage, numbers matching Mach 1 428 Super Cobra Jet coupe are often restored for private collections, auctions, or museum placements. Even though their age and condition can result in higher restoration costs, a concourse quality restoration can increase the car’s overall value and desirability.
We also understand that market value is not the only factor. We’ve met a lot of Mustang owners through the years and know that other factors are also important. Those range from reclaiming a piece of family history to a deep appreciation for these classic American muscle cars. Our team is ready and able to help you accomplish all the goals you have for your pony car restoration.
Paint and Customization
Paint and customizations are among the most common examples of non-stock restoration project goals. We use the best paint materials available on the market. Most restoration projects include matching the original Mustang’s factory color. However, if that’s not in keeping with your goals, we’ll use the same quality paint products but work to find the color that best suits the way you’d like your car to look.
If you’re looking for a different take on your classic Mustang, we also do custom restoration modification (restomod) work. We’ve got the skills to find or fabricate parts that will bring your vision to life. We can make custom changes from bumpers to fenders, headlights to custom paint, and almost anything in between. Be sure and call us today so we can start planning your classic restomod.
Estimates for Mustang Restoration Costs
Please call our shop at 919-552-0333 between 9am and 5pm eastern time to schedule an appointment for us to look at your car.
During your visit, we’ll make a detailed assessment of your car based on what we can see without going through the disassembly process. We’ll estimate the effort related to:
- auto body repair and replacement (dents, scratches, prior repair, etc.),
- exterior and interior trim condition and replacement, and
- engine and drivetrain condition.
We’ll send you an estimate that shows our best educated assessment about the parts and labor your Mustang restoration project will require. Throughout the restoration process, we’ll keep you informed about what we find and the options you have for how to handle anything unexpected.
If the car’s market value is the most significant factor in your decision on any Mustang restoration, you should let us know early in the estimating process. We will help you decide what restoration level would be most in line with your budget and expectations.
