Turn Your Vintage Dreams into Classy Reality With Palm Beach Customs’ Classic Car Restoration

Classic cars have a nostalgic, timeless style and appearance, evoking memories from the good ol’ days. We all love and admire special classic car brands and models atheir history. But, they don’t build ‘em like this anymore.

Why Palm Beach Customs?

With over 2100 successful showroom-ready car restoration projects and over 40 years in business, we don’t plan to stop any time soon.

If you’re looking for a turn-key service in restoring or building your classic car, we can help.

What Makes Palm Beach Customs Classic Car Builds Special:

We’re a full-service turn-key restoration shop. Every car is white-metal stripped, primed, and painted in a state-of-the-art downdraft paint booth. Paintwork is handled by John Russo himself, building muscle and classic cars for over 41 years.

Original Steel Body:

We supply original steel bodies if needed. We provide a fully restored and rust-proofed steel body. Bedliner is applied inside the tubs for protection and longevity.

Chassis and Suspension Improvements

We sell and build turn-key full chassis projects, and we can make available upgrades to your restoration project. All chassis are sand-blasted, epoxy-painted, with available suspension upgrade kits. 

Engine Options

Whether you’re a GM, Ford, or MOPAR fan, your restoration project will be powered by a matching engine. If you’re up for an upgrade, there are always several options to choose from.

Interior Restoration and Modern Upgrades

Wiring harnesses, dash upgrades, upholstery restoration to like-new level using top-grade materials, and showroom level craftsmanship are just a part of the interior restorations. Modern upgrades like air conditioning, power steering, electronic ignition, and more can bring modern features to the original design and still preserve its essence.
