Restorations

 

For over 30 years 3R has been restoring vintage vehicles to show or race winning levels. We take restorations seriously and have assembled our Denver Colorado facility to provide our restoration clients a true one stop experience, including the ability to tackle the challenges that will often arise when breathing new life into a vintage vehicle.

3R specializes in all types of restoration including classic restorations, restomods, pro touring and vintage race cars. We are passionate about our restorations and work closely with our customers to deliver a restored vehicle that exceeds expectations. See some examples of our restoration projects below and contact us for a consultation.

Classic Restorations

3R Automotive has a very highly-respected restoration shop with over 80 first place awards and many other special awards to its credit, including a 2nd place at the world-renowned Pebble Beach Concours D’elegance.  Our restoration Department is highly skilled to do complete restorations and repair of classic cars, sports cars and show cars . We have 30+ years of experience using traditional materials, tools and the proper processes needed to restore them to their original condition. Our facility is a true one stop experience where we pride ourselves on being able to do 99% of our work in house, so that we can closely work with our customers to see that their dreams, needs and wants are achieved.

Restomod

This is a classic car that is modernized in the restoration process. Which means that the interior is removed and replaced with modern features that did not come with the car originally. These vehicles generally include a newer more reliable motor, modern disc brakes, updated interior, overdrive, bigger wheels and tires and a new ignition/electronic system. All enhancing the cars performance, comfort and safety.

Whether you have an idea of your own or would like to mix old and new technologies, we specialize in constructing whatever you can dream up. We can do it all, from classic to full race. There is no job too small or too big for us. If you can dream it, we certainly can create it.

Pro Touring

 These cars see upgrades to the chassis, suspension components, drive train and many other modern upgrades, including modern-day creature comforts. These machines are built to perform as well or better than some of today’s current top performance cars. The goal of having this car is that it is meant to be driven. Pro Touring cars can be driven around town, on a race track, at the drag strip or through the cones at an autocross course and of course, anywhere else you can think of. This car is the combination of the amazing advancement in automotive industry from the last 40+ years and marrying it with a classic car of old, enhancing the performance, comfort and safety and that delivers a whole lot of versatile and fun!

Upon request, we can travel with the customers and their race cars to work as a support crew and help to ease the stress of handling the agendas regarding the races.
