Restoration vs. Original Automotive Parts

In the world of automotive repair, there are two very different camps: Restoration and original. Some people are 100 percent loyal to their preference no matter what. Oftentimes, these include collectors and vintage car enthusiasts who, for better or for worse, will only go with original parts. This makes sense. After all, someone who’s spent the past 10 years diligently seeking out all original parts to their 1964 Mustang is not going to suddenly tell their body repair pro, “You know what? Let’s go ahead and try to restore the dash instead of hunting down an original replacement.”

Or are they? When a part can be fully restored to its original glory without compromising the integrity of it, restoration can be easier, faster and more affordable. Tracking down original parts is not easy and it can be downright impossible depending on the vehicle. For example, if you are looking for original parts for a vehicle that is no longer made, there are only so many options out there. When it comes to restoration vs. original, which is really the best approach?

The Trifecta Dilemma

Just like when building on a property, you can often only have two of these: A fast turnaround, quality work and a great price. Obviously, when it comes to your baby in the garage, you have to choose quality work. Now it comes down to turnaround or an affordable price. Some restoration projects are more affordable than the ticket price of an original part—and vice versa. Sometimes you luck out and instantly find an original part, but other times it can take years.

It all comes down to your vehicle, your goals and your bank account. A great body shop pro can work miracles, but only if they have the right foundation to work with. Is it paramount that you have a vehicle with all original parts? Or is it more important that it looks like it just rolled off the assembly line even if it is 50 years old?

What You Are Working With

A great restoration project might look just like an original gem, but as the owner you’ll know the truth. For some, original or not does not matter. For others, they will forever be looking at that restored part and wishing they would have held out for an original. No matter which direction you go, having top quality work is a must. A good mechanic or body shop won’t push you in one direction for their own gain, they should simply supply professional, neutral feedback to help you make the best decision.

After all, these pros got into the business because of their love of vehicles, passion and skills. A great restoration project is equally rewarding to them, and so is finally locating that last original part to make your project complete. This is a team effort all the way. Whether you are after a prize in a car show or simply watching your childhood dream car come to fruition, always put quality first and you will not be disappointed.

For excellence in auto body work in the Salt Lake and Tooele Valleys, look to Everest Collision Repair.
