The Bowtie Shop is a full-service restoration shop. We offer services dedicated to the classic car and truck enthusiast or collector. While our specialty or area of expertise is working with 1953 to 1972 Corvettes, we thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to work on a number of other GM models. We are also your one-stop-shop for full Concours style restorations, partial restorations to custom modifications on Corvettes or classic muscle cars. Our award-winning experienced staff has the capability to perform the highest quality restorations, from muscle car restorations to classic car restorations to your modern car or truck. All facets of body repair and finishing, interior work and engine restoration are completed to meet or exceed your expectations. Our job is not only to restore the vehicle’s appearance, but to ensure that your expectations are met and exceeded in terms of your car’s performance.
All of this is achieved with complete transparency and relies on an open line of communication between you and our staff. We will spend the time to meet with you to better understand your goals and budget for your car and then based on this information, a comprehensive detailed estimate will be provided and thoroughly reviewed. Along the way, as we work on your car, we are in constant communication.
Our commitment is to serve you with quality and value, whether your needs are a repair, maintenance or restoration.
The Bowtie Shop provides complete body-off chassis restoration. We provide services which include transmission rebuilding and upgrades, engine rebuilding & detailing, suspension rebuilds & modifications, and custom chassis swaps. Our experience and expertise with classic cars, especially Corvettes, allows us to restore your chassis back to its original glory or swap out your chassis for a custom ride with modern era suspension and braking.
Our body shop is second to none. The Bowtie Shop’s award-winning staff of experienced auto body specialists provide excellence in quality of repair and restoration for any make or model. The fiberglass repair techniques and metal fabrication practices we utilize have been perfected over the years to be able to provide you with a restoration that replicates the condition comparable to when your car first came from the factory or a show winning finish.
All our interior restoration work is done in-house with the exception of the calibration and service of gauges. We can also bring your interior back to stock original or add custom touches.
While restoring any vehicle for better appearance, the performance of the vehicle is equally important. The Bowtie Shop works with a high-end machine shop for all its engine and head machining along with proper balancing of the rotating mass. We assemble all engines in-house from the block up in order to assure a quality and lasting build. With our ability to test drive and tune with our chassis dyno, the team will return your modern or classic car to its peak performance. We can also detail your engine to a stock look for concourse judging or custom detailing for shows.
