If you’re not familiar with the term, what is a recreation? A recreation is a classic car that is built from scratch to look and perform like the original, but with modern technology and components. At Texoma Classics, we specialize in building recreations built from the ground up using only new parts, including newly manufactured bodies that are built to be identical to the original classic car’s style. Recreations offer several advantages over restorations. They allow you to obtain a pristine classic car if you don’t already own one, they offer a high level of customization, and they can be built more efficiently and sometimes more affordably than a restoration.
Avoid Costly Labor Hours for Rust Repair
One of the main reasons to choose a recreation over a restoration is to avoid the costly labor hours needed for rust repair while restoring an original body. Restoring an original car can be a time-consuming and expensive process, especially if the body has rust damage. A recreation, on the other hand, is built from a new body that does not have any rust damage, which means that the build time and cost can be significantly lower than restoring an original car.
Obtain a Classic Car Without Owning One
Another reason to choose a recreation over a restoration is if you don’t already own a classic car. Recreations allow you to own a classic car that looks and performs like the original without the need to find and restore an original car. This can be especially beneficial if you’re looking for a specific make and model that is difficult to find in good condition.
Customization to Meet Your Needs
Recreations generally offer a higher level of customization than all but the most in-depth restorations. When you choose Texoma Classics to build your recreation, you get to customize every aspect of the car to meet your specific needs. You get to select which body style of the classic car you want, which engine you want, options for custom brakes, and options for basic up to very high-end car audio systems with subwoofer boxes that can be upholstered to match the vehicle’s interior. You even get to select which materials we use for upholstery, paint colors, whether the engine will be naturally aspirated vs turbocharged or supercharged, and we even offer a fully electric drivetrain option if the customer doesn’t want a gas-powered classic car or truck.
