In this article I will try to demystify the process of locating just the right car for you. If you have done one of these projects in the past you can obviously handle a little rougher of a project car. But for this article like most of my other articles; I will stick to the beginner theme.

A restoration project is supposed to be a fun thing. You should not get a complete turd to start with. The idea is to find a car that you can complete the restoration on. A car that won’t be pushed to the back yard to rot in the elements.

With that in mind let’s talk about the price you should plan to spend on a good car for restoration. There is no such a thing as a $2,500 dollar classic car that is anything more then a turd. Remember what I said at the first; unless you have already done a restoration, you should stay away from a turd to start with.

You should put aside about $10,000 for a good starter restoration project. In my eyes a good starter car is one that has very little to no rust in the body; no burned electrical wiring, and a sound car mechanically; you can find this for about $10,000.

You should evaluate your skills to restore the car, and get a car that fits in to your skill set.

If your a good mechanic you should look toward a car that may need more mechanical work then body, or electrical work. Keep in mind that you will enjoy the project a lot more if the car leans toward your skill set.

I’m by no means saying that you can’t learn all of the processes that you need to know to perform a car restoration. What I am saying is this; if you are able to get a lot of the work done by yourself it will build your confidence, and you will have more fun.

When looking for cars for restoration you should consider how hard the parts my be to find also. If the parts are readily available for the car that you choose to restore the project will flow a lot smoother. If you think of all of the things that may slow down the project, and look for the way around those problems you should be all good with the work.
