There are practical cars, and then there are aspirational rides. The former takes you places, while the latter often sits in the yard, receiving a bit of work here and there. Be it a shell of a muscle car or a few-decades-old vehicle needing significant maintenance, it’s a car that requires one thing – extensive work from a professional.
Within the Naugatuck Valley area, DaSilva’s Auto Body specializes in car restoration. No matter the decade or the make and model, our team provides a range of transformative options and skilled, talented technicians with the expertise to achieve exceptional results.
Bring your car in for hassle-free service from start to completion. Just like you, we’re passionate about cars and understand what this project means. From restoring its driving condition to turning it into a show car, we can do the following repairs:
- Engine construction and component fabrication
- Specialized maintenance
- Current and future diagnostics
- Mechanical work – We restore and service older systems
- Metal and fabrication – We have the ability to create full bodies, parts, and trim
- Painting – A fresh coat or a finish ends up flat and smooth. In the process, we sand, seal, and prime to achieve a crisp, uniform result.
- Upholstering – We’ll restore the interior to its original specifications, including any custom upholstery, seats, headliners, vinyl tops, and carpet.
- Restoring wood and coach trim
Restoration begins like many auto body jobs – with a diagnosis. In the process, we disassemble the vehicle and parts to determine which repairs are needed. From here, our experienced technicians:
- Order, assemble, and install parts
- Fabricate and replace metal panels
- Strip away any chemicals
- Perform quality checks, including a road test, if you intend to drive the finished product.
Keep in mind that auto restoration is not solely a superficial process. We service the entire vehicle:
- Body repair
- Cooling systems
- Chassis fabrication
- Electrical repair
- Engine and transmission tuning
- Rebuilding and repairing the engine
- Fuel systems
- Rust and metal repair
