bring Metropolitans to us from all over the United States. Why?
To obtain a superior restoration for less money than their local
shop can provide. How can that be? Because other shops have to learn
about Metropolitans, researching for original details and studying
whatever information they can find.
skilled technicians work exclusively on Metropolitans, possessing
expert knowledge of all aspects of the car, inside and out. Likewise,
while others must hunt for correct parts, our complete parts inventory
is located in the same building as the shop, enabling our technicians
to work efficiently.
When a Metropolitan arrives, our technicians perform a thorough
examination of the car. A written assessment is prepared, including
estimates to rebuild, refurbish or replace each substandard component.
Owner preferences such as body color, upholstery fabric, etc. are
noted. The total estimated price is based on the condition of the
car and the degree of restoration desired.
An initial deposit of 25% of the total estimated price is required
to begin the restoration. The customer is kept well informed as
we move through each stage of restoration. Interim bills are provided
as the work progresses.
to the age of Metropolitans, weve found that there can be
many surprises revealed during the disassembly process. Regardless,
we will not exceed the estimated price without first advising the
customer of our findings, providing an explanation and receiving
an approval to proceed.
We welcome you to visit us and view some of the Metropolitans weve
restored, currently on exhibit in our museum.
