For nearly a decade, Tom Brownell's How to Restore Your Collector Car has been the ultimate how-to guide for anyone looking to turn a neglected classic into a traffic-stopping collector car. From choosing the right vehicle, purchasing (or renting) the right tools to get the job done, to entering the finished product in a show, this is the restoration book for the enthusiast who takes pride in not just getting his hands dirty, but in knowing why every bolt was chosen (not to mention how tightly it was torqued).

From setting up your workspace for maximum productivity and safety, to tips and techniques for restoring bodies, paint, engines, drivelines, suspensions, upholstery, glass, brakes, and wheels--even steps for updating safety systems while maintaining collectability--this book covers every aspect of a restoring a classic car to its original glory.
