Valenti Classics began with a detailed restoration father/son project, and since that first vehicle 25 years ago, the Valenti team has restored countless others. Unlike some restoration shops, we don't limit ourselves to one type of car, and we don't cut corners. Restoration means to us "precisely like it was," right down to the factory-specific bolts and inspection markings. We invite you to browse our Restoration Gallery. If you're interested in your car being "precisely like you want it instead, please visit our Custom Builds Gallery.

About Valenti Classics
Valenti Classics, Inc. is a father/son business that began back in 1991 as a father/son project, and a step back in time. Currently we have cars in 34 different nations on all continents except Antarctica and every U.S. State except Alaska. Don, my father, and I, Steve Valenti, purchased and began restoring in our garage a 1961 Corvette, to bring back the memories of my father’s first new car. We received so much recognition for our restoration that we decided to open our doors to other people’s collector car desires. We opened our business with a focus on both sales and restoration, hunting barns, city streets, and auctions for unique and highly valued cars to restore or resell via our global network of enthusiasts. Over time, we became renowned and somewhat unique in our ability to offer a full suite of services to the collector car world: offering consulting, skilled restoration, historical authentication, custom builds, sales, service, and procurement (specialty hunting). We have grown in both revenue and size, employing a greater number of highly talented and unique mechanical artists to maximize our service and restoration capabilities. Along the way, we have also increased our capability and demand in the field of custom builds.
Currently, our facility in Franklin, Wisconsin houses cars for sale, unique customer cars for specialty storage and has approximately 20 unique projects in the works, from minor repairs to full scale restorations and custom one-of-a-kind builds. Our current list of projects ranges from a 1915 Buick Twin Six (only one in the world), to a 1997 Land Rover custom build. Additionally, we have our custom design, fabrication, body and paint studio, Color and Design Studio by Valenti, where we design unique renderings and bring the clients custom car in their mind to paper and then to pavement.
Our versatility and full-spectrum approach in the classic car industry is one of our key differentiating points. Most facilities either focus on a very specific make or model and / or focus on a specific aspect of service – purely sales, or purely engine service, etc. Those facilities that do use a more comprehensive approach usually focus on very few projects at a time and often outsource much of their work ultimately causing issues with scheduling and quality control. There are very few complete full-service collector car facilities in the world, and even fewer that operate with the quality, authentication, and mechanical skills that we employ.
We offer not only custom car builds and complete concours restorations to exacting standards but also preservation, authentication and a car locator service. We tailor our services to fit each individual customer with turn-on-a-dime responsiveness.
