Past Restorations by Copperstate Classic Cars

At the moment we are restoring the following cars:



Right now it is undergoing a full cosmetic restoration after being in stored Southern Arizona for 54 years.

Arizona car that was hit on the left side in the mid 60's and taken to a junk yard in Tucson, Arizona in 1967!

Fortunately the car was bought by somebody wanting to put it back on the road, he replaced the left side doors and stripped the chrome, side trim etc off the car and intended to get it repainted.

Fast forward 45 years, the car is still not painted!!!

We recently bought it and we are now doing a full paint job, inside and out, starting with a bare metal body, new interior, new brakes and some new glass.

We'll also redo the cylinder heads and install hardened valve seats, new water pump, new fuel pump, the fuel tank was boiled out and is clean and nice inside, rebuilt carburetor.

The fiberglass side trim was professionally redone inc perfect wood grain exactly as original.   

All stainless was professionally polished, the tele touch mechanism rebuilt, new dash pad and on and on. 

New wide white wall tires.  

The body is absolutely rust free (Arizona quality) the potmetal chrome is virtually as nice as it was in 1958 (again Arizona quality) and does not need rechroming.

 The car still has the just over 25.000 original miles it had when taken to a junk yard in 1967, it is rustfree, complete and with excellent original potmetal chrome, rechromed front and rear bumper, new interior and new paint, new rubber, new tires, exhaust etc.

It will be the nicest 1958 Bermuda that has been available for sale in several years in the US.

And it is a factory tinted glass, PB and 9 passenger Bermuda wagon.  

 The price will be determined as the restoration gets closer to being finished. 



1960 CADILLAC COUPE DEVILLE.  Dry Texas car.  Taken down to bare metal with very little rust repair.  We have painted the car in the original white.  All new black interior installed.  New brakes, tires, glass, and weather-stripping, etc.  Once we are done with the engine rebuild the car will be going to it's new owner in Sweden.

1957 CHRYSLER NEW YORKER CONVERTIBLE. We bought this from the original owner 31 years ago. The car still has the original title from June 3rd 1957! The body is rotisserie restored and it has been painted inside and underneath. The frame and all the suspension and steering was powder coated and all hardware zinc plated. Everything will be rebuilt from the front end, rear end, brakes, drive shaft, new radiator, heater core, recast steering wheel, new dash pad, etc. We are installing a genuine 1957 300C 375 horse power 392 Hemi with dual carburetion and of course a rebuilt Torqueflite transmission behind the engine.
