"Great service, honesty and ethics, is how you care for your customers." --Ralph Sikes, American Resto Mods

“When I opened my first business in 1988,” Sikes said, “people used to tell me that it must be great to be my own boss. I told them that I don’t work for myself–I work for all my clients. I have many bosses.”

From high-technology to high-end restorations

I’ve been blessed throughout the years to be surrounded by impassioned partners, skilled employees and gracious customers. After twenty five years in the field of Information Technology serving automobile dealerships and financial institutions, I’m finally able to use my business experience to focus on my real passion–classic cars.

I learned that a key factor in building a successful business is to assemble a team of passionate and skilled professionals anxious to meet customer needs. That’s American Resto Mods!

Built with passion

When you bring your treasured classic car to American Resto Mods for a restoration or a restomod, you will quickly feel confident about our skills and passion for perfection. You’ll meet the talented craftsmen of our team, seasoned pros that represent a combined 75 years of experience. As one of the crew commented, “These guys are the best of the best.”
Classic Cars — only better.

A restomod means that we restore the old body of your classic car to better-than-original condition and use the latest technology to enhance performance, beauty, comfort and safety. A full authentic restoration uses authentic parts to re-create the original car as it rolled off the assembly line. Painstaking research in the building of an authentic factory original is paramount in achieving the final goal.

Planning your classic car’s restoration

During our first meeting, we’ll discuss the goals and desires for your project. Whether you desire a daily driver, combination show and drive, or a pure show quality vehicle we’ll assess the project and work with you to develop a detailed plan and time-frame.

Restorations are all about conscientious research and meticulous craftsmanship, so the work on your car may take anywhere from a few months to over a year. Whether you live nearby or 3,000 miles away, you’ll always know the current status of your restoration with documented photos and regular progress reports. So please be patient, because the end result will be well worth the wait!
