“ Classics and specials” is the name that bears this original restoration workshop. They have been in the specialized automotive industry for 10 years , since they inaugurated in 2010, first with the idea of fulfilling a dream, then consolidating itself as a company.
This workshop was born of love among friends and the enjoyment of enjoying each profession. It was a group of faithful fierreros who are dedicated to different areas and who managed to complement each other in order to achieve a comprehensive workshop. The project aimed to update and restore collection models, fixing all the necessary details. Therefore, they have a holistic team with professionals from all areas that help to carry out perfectionist and illuminated finishes.
The innovation of this idea, arises from the love of classic and old cars. The current director of the factory comments how frustrating it was to get to restore his own cars . Since I always had to go to different places, with different times and varying qualities. That is why, from his own need, but also shared by his car-loving friends, he decided to start offering all catering services in one place. Javier Izurieta, the technical director of the workshop, says “We decided to make a comprehensive workshop, with all the people in the same place, and working together. So that what the chapist does, serve the painter and then what the shipowners do, serve the upholsterers and then, by working all at the same time a better end result is achieved.”
On the huge building of 5 thousand square meters is located on Avenida Japón to 1200 and updates its stock of original cars constantly. The areas in which they work are all: disassembly, veneer, painting, mechanics, assembly and upholstery. They also have a plastic carriage section , to manufacture replicas or repair fiber cars.
Most replicas and models are from premium brands: Austin Seven del 30, Jaguar del 61, Buick del 24, Cadillac del 60, Packard del 29, Camaro del 60, Mercedes Coupe 63, among others. Also mix some historical national origin such as a Justicialist Sport or the classic Chevy Coupe SS.
According to Izurieta, the highest value are convertible ones, then the coupe and finally the closed ones. “ And it is the order of the older models that are most sought and that are therefore the most expensive.” Also, the specialist points out that “ restored cars are very beautiful, but the problem comes when you want to use them often.” Therefore, your job is also to look for more reliable engines, more efficient boxes and improve brakes and steering.
On its website, the workshop is defined as “a work cooperative that was formed together by a passion: to generate and maintain classic cars. Each of its partners contributes to a different area of work and together we managed to create the largest and most complete workshop in the interior of the country, including award-winning cars in AutoClásica, complete replicas and historic national cars. ”
