About Us

Classic Showcase has been buying, selling, restoring, and servicing classic cars for over 30 years. When you purchase one of our Show/Driver or Show level restored cars, you will not only have a great Blue-Chip investment vehicle, but a great experience each and every time. Our track record with collectors and customers speaks for itself. Whether it's winning on the show field with one of our restored cars or performing service to your classic, our team will be there for our customers every step of the way. Our team goes the extra mile to ensure that our restorations are of the highest quality and dependability, and while we can't control market fluctuations, we can say that history has shown that our restored vehicles retain their value very well when sold and will last you for many years to come.

We understand that the times we live in have presented challenges to conducting traditional business all over the world; as with other industries, the classic car hobby today is different than it was, but in many ways, it has been for the better and in fact streamlined what used to be a more difficult process. We have adapted our business to accommodate the special needs of our customers so they may fulfill their goals at Classic Showcase; from leveraging the latest technologies like real-time streaming video for virtual tours of our vehicles, to performing pre purchase (PPI) inspections from outside sources, we strive to make all aspects of sales, service, and consignment a hassle-free process for the customer. We focus on eliminating the unknowns, surprises, and disappointments that can occur, and aim to please our customers every step of the way.

Please note that our vehicles, showrooms, and facilities are available for showing by appointement only

Restorations

If you’re looking for a restoration, our knowledgeable and skilled craftsmen can transform any classic automobile into its original state or better. Our in-house restoration team has a passion for the preservation of these timeless classics. Over the years, we have found that most of our clients prefer a price range for their specific restoration needs and so we have created a various tier restoration set up: show, show-driver, driver, modified, and preservation. All of our restorations start with a complete and comprehensive evaluation so that we may determine what will need restoration, replacing or repairing. After this evaluation, we create a custom quote for each client, a custom restoration phase set up, along with a payment plan.

Sales

The sales process begins with a simple call or email to discuss your vision for your next classic car purchase. First, we establish what level car you’re looking for and what your budget is. We’ll then give you a comprehensive overview of not only a vehicle’s specifications, but an honest report of the car’s condition, as well as detailed photographs of the vehicle, giving you the prospective buyer detailed insight in order to make the right purchase.

Servicing

Throughout the life of your classic investment, it will need preventative services and ‘freshening up’. Because your classic vehicle is not the everyday car it can sometimes be time consuming and stressful to find a shop that specializes in your classic car. This frustration can lead collectors to the point of not doing anything. Classic Showcase would like the opportunity to take this process out of your life so that you can continue to enjoy your vehicle as much as the day that you first laid eyes on it.

We can arrange for your car to be picked up, by our professional transport partners, from any location and brought to our facility in Oceanside, Ca. Once your car is at our facility, we will inspect and analyze the vehicle and all systems and prepare an itemized list of recommended services, whether they are aesthetic or mechanical.

Long Distance Purchasing

We make long distance purchasing and transporting vehicles directly to you a simple process. We use the best transportation companies in the business, with the most knowledgeable people and properly maintained equipment. Our team supervises the loading of each car, and we forward you photographs and the delivery driver's contact information upon departure. Each car is driven, inspected, and detailed by one of our team members prior to your delivery. The property that goes with the purchase is logged in, and properly packed into your new vehicle for transport. Our communication with the buyer is second to none in the business. We will let you know the status of delivery with you each step of the way, and when you receive the car, we will answer any questions you may have, then or in the future. Your satisfaction is our #1 priority.
