If you’re restoring a car for profit, the Ford Model A might not be the very best choice, as it’s easily available these days. If you’re doing it just for the heck of it, then you’re in luck. Finding parts for this model is easy peasy, what with the plenty of suppliers available. There are a number of experts who can help you bring the Ford Model A back to its former glory, too.

Say you really want to make money out of it. Add high performance parts to increase its value.

Packard of 1951-1954

When restored properly, money will come easy with a Packard. Unfortunately, restoration might not be as easy and quick. While the body is readily available and affordable, the trims can prove challenging to acquire. The good news there is clubs who can guide you all the way. 

Chevrolet Bel Air of 1953-1954

The reason why it’s becoming more popular with collectors and restorers is that parts are now more affordable and wide-ranging. High performance upgrades are also available for the Chevrolet Bel Air, including disc brake conversions.

Lincoln Continental of 1961-1966

While the Lincoln Continental is affordable, replacement parts are hard to find. This makes restoration work quite challenging. But once you find a good source, you’re good to go. However, if it’s your first time to restore a car, you might want to try other models. Because the Continental is handmade, it requires professional skills and knowledge.

Pontiac Grand Prix of 1962

This car was popular then, and it’s still popular now. Restoring it for profit can be the best decision you ever make. Not only is it highly in demand by collectors, but reproduction parts are also easily available and sold at decent prices.

Restored to their former glory, any of these classic cars will make a collector’s garage stand out.
