1967 Jaguar E-Type Client Restoration with Upgrades:

In 2021, a new collector client of ours with several classics already in his collection commissioned us to perform a customized restoration to a 1967 Jaguar XKE Fixed Head Coupe he previously purchased. The client enjoys not only collecting classics, but driving them as well, and sought to have not only a comprehensively restored example, but one that would feature a number of unique aesthetic enhancements as well as performance upgrades made to the car. He wishes to experience the XKE out in the country, where he can let loose and enjoy navigating the twists and turns of his favorite backroads...but also seeks to have a great looking and unique car to boot. Tom and the team were happy to fullfill his request, and started the restoration journey to his XKE in the Fall of 2021. The XKE is getting close to completion, and will be featured in our Fall 2022 newsletter, so please stay tuned to this exciting customized restoration!

1959 Jaguar XKSS re-creation Restoration:

In our quest to have one of the rarest classic jaguar models – the XSS - our team has begun  the restoration process to this special car. We are looking to create one of the best looking, running, and performing cars ever, and are excited to take on such a unique Jaguar build such as this. The car features an all-aluminum body and parts, and will be powered by a 3.4 liter XK MC C-Type engine with  a Red head.

This 1956 Ford F100 was an incredible and exciting build not only for the client, but for our entire team.

The restoration was completed in the Spring of 2022, and the results were nothing short of spectacular.

1954 Jaguar XK-120 Roadster
Client Restoration:

Classic Showcase was commissioned to locate, acquire and restore an XK-120 for a client. With their vision and ours, we came up with this creation which is named “Top Cat”. This is a very special, one of a kind vehicle that is dressed in a deep, glossy Ebony black with a dark tan leather interior finished with a black Tonneau cover. We modified the XK-120 to create an open roadster for touring, rallying, and to be a road and show car...
