What If?

What if you always loved the Classic and Iconic American Cars of the 50’s, 60’ and 70’s, but you never owned one? What if you didn’t inherit some special old car from a family member or you didn’t have or want a ‘barn find’ or some other type of old Classic that you wanted to “restore”? Maybe you went down that road of a car restoration before and didn’t want to do it again?

What if you just loved the day when they built cars out of metal and they had the Classic style you loved? And what if you didn’t care about factory matching numbers and all original parts? No, what if, as an example, you simply wanted a ’68 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-500, but you wanted it brand new?! Maybe it was the ’55 Chevy Bel Air you loved or the ’70 Oldsmobile 442? Perhaps it’s the ’69 Camaro or GTO that you’ve always dreamt of driving? Maybe it’s the iconic ’70 Chevelle? But you never owned one, found one, or got one that you would want to have restored, either by you or others? Because you wanted your Classic Dream Car to be NEW! You wanted it to look, exterior and interior, exactly like the original, but under the hood, under the body, and all the electronics would be with today’s technology. Perhaps an LS3 or Coyote engine, but you could have whatever engine you wanted. Perhaps an Art Morrison frame to handle all those horse under the hood. A Curry transmission and drivetrain, an SPC rear-end, and behind that new retro dash is all of today’s modern electronics, including the sound system. What if, that new ‘Classic Dream Car’ of yours was now more than a dream, but within your reach and available now?

And if the Euro-Supercar is more to your liking, we can build that for you new as well. Just see the TC-Euro under the same ‘What If’ navigation button on our Home Page.

Well, your “What if?” has been answered and is available today!

Visit the pages linked below for a deeper look at these vehicles.
 

This iconic roadster styling is known by all, but affording an original Cobra is beyond the reach of most. The TC-Roadster changes all that, by putting this high-performance iconic roadster within the reach of many more, and 'turn-key' delivered to you in the color and performance package of your choosing.
 

The TC-Euro exudes the classic styling of today's European Exotic Supercars for a fraction of the cost. And beyond its styling, this TC-Exotic comes with a performance package of your choosing and one that will easily rival the traditional exotic Supercars of Europe.

F.A.Q.

How can you build a brand-new Classic?

Today classic cars are very well supported. There are many quality manufactures building copies of original parts. In fact, in many cases manufactures have acquired original press dies allowing for accurate new reproduction original parts. In addition, if your adding a new state of the art engine you will find these are currently being built. As an example, the LS3 or Coyote.

What is a Re-Pro?

Re-pro or re-pop is a “reproduction”. Looks just as an original car with all new parts. They can be built as an original car (where original specified parts are available) or as a restomod which is a restoration/modification with newer parts, again using the LS3 as an example.

What is the major difference between restoring an old factory classic and building the same car ‘new’?

The major differences are what we refer to as “unforeseen problems”. You should budget for unforeseen problems when doing a restoration. There are a number of areas that can expose unforeseen problems. A good example of this is the point of which the car gets back from the media blaster. We cannot tell in advance what we do not know until the car gets back. Once back unforeseen metal work is usually required. Examples of this may be patch panel repair, floor pans etc. In building a new car you will still see some unforeseen problems, as an example fitting reproduction parts. But as this is a new car with all new parts you will not be faced with the tasks of metal repair. While these cars are not cheap the unforeseen obstacles will be far less.

What is the difference between a ‘Resto-Mod’ and a New Recreation?

A restomod is taking an original car, restoring it so that it retains the looks of the original while modifying the components. As an example, we may add an LS3 engine, Currie rearend, new suspension and disk brakes all around. Looks like an original car but performs like today’s.

What major suppliers do you use for building a new Classic?

We have many relationships with many manufactures. Manufactures that provide both all original parts as well as newer technology products.

What are the financial advantages of a new recreation versus restoration?

As discussed above the post media blasting metal work is removed from a project of this nature. In the end you end up with a brand-new car that costs less to produce.

Does it take less time to do a ‘Recreation’ than a restoration? What is the approximate time-frame for a ‘Recreation’ from start to finish?

Yes, it does take less time, as we mentioned above there are less unforeseen potential problems. As far as time frame it depends on, part venders, the extent you spec out the car, our workload in the shop etc. Figure at least 6 months.

Can I choose the engine and paint I want? What else do I get to choose in recreating my new Classic?

Absolutely, we are a custom car shop. Any part, any drivetrain, any interior, any specification and any paint can be chosen. You can build the car in any way you want.

Are these New Classic “Re-Pro’s” metal or fiberglass?

For the most part the cars are similar to original materials. Of course, there are some exceptions. As an example, if we are doing a Corvette or a Shelby they would be fiberglass fiberglass bodies.

If I want to have Texoma Classics build a new Classic for me, what do I need to do and how much money do I need to have up-front? What is the purchase price for any particular car?

The price of the car is dependent on your approach. Like the drive train, interior and paint you can shape the project to meet your budgetary needs. Once we sit down with you in a Design and Engineering meeting we will develop a detailed cost analysis. Once the analysis is done we will figure the deposit for both labor and parts.

Is there a warrantee?

Texoma Classics warrantees any labor to be free of defects for a period of one year. As well, we pass any manufactures warrantees on to you.

How do I find out the cost to build one of the cars listed here?

For an initial pricing we have priced out two cars that you can look at line by line. Please see the Euro or the Shelby for pricing of those projects. Past that we will sit down with you for a Design and Engineering meeting. This meeting will provide a detailed pricing proposal.

Am I going to be charged labor and parts or is this all included in one fixed purchase price?

Once we have been through the D&E meeting it is close to a fixed price but as discussed above, while far lesser than a restoration, there are still some potential unforeseen issues that may extend the price.

Do you provide delivery service in-state or out-of-state or is this something I need to arrange?

Yes, in this case we would provide delivery at a rate of $1.50 per mile. Or if you prefer you may arrange a company to deliver the vehicle.

Do you provide a warranty on the paint job?

Yes, as with all labor we do warranty the paint job.

Am I restricted to only the parts you offer, or can I request or provide certain parts that I wish to have installed?

You can provide parts if you like. Please consider that the cheapest parts sometime add to labor to make them work or fit.

Are each of the cars you build show quality?

We can build you a daily driver or a show quality points car. As we are a custom shop we can build it anyway you like.

Will you have the car state inspected or is this my responsibility?

Yes will have the car inspected for you but due to law can only have an inspection done in Grayson County.

Will you build a car to meet my state’s motor vehicle inspection requirements, such as emissions/anti-pollution standards? If so, does this cost extra and how much more?

Yes, but due to the widely varying requirements specifics should be discussed during consultation.

Can you build a car and ship to another country?

Yes, and while certain circumstances require third party involvement we are more than happy to help you work something out during consultation.

Do you custom tune the engine to a certain specification or is the tune determined by the customer?

If we are installing an LS3 we will do a standard tune that will have you close to max performance. If you care to, we can Dynameter the engine for maximum performance.

What is the next step, what do we do if we would like more info?

We are always available to discuss your needs, so please feel free to contact us.
