    Precision Restorations Adds New Service

    Precision Restorations, a St. Louis, Mo.-based classic car and truck restoration company, recently added a new program called ClassicCare that provides partial restorations and mechanical upgrades.
    According to company owner Dale Oestreich, ClassicCare will generate approximately $150,000 annually. Located at 4151 Forest Park Ave., Precisions Restorations billed $2 million in 2016.
    The new program will focus on mechanical upgrades including the rebuilding and replacement of engines, transmissions, brakes, fuel line, suspension, and more. Electrical issues will also be handled, as well as partial restorations ranging from body and paint repair to trouble shooting issues.
    "This service is perfect for classic car owners who started working on their cars but didn't have the time or necessary skillset to complete the restoration," said Oestreich. "The new ClassicCare is more of an express service because our typically extensive restorations can take anywhere from several months to well over a year to complete while custom design and work take considerable longer. This program is for less invasive projects that need the industry expertise we possess and the quality craftsmanship we provide."
    Precision Restorations typically handles 30 simultaneous projects at different restoration stages in its 24,000-square-foot location. Projects average $80,000 per car with many exceeding $150,000. There are currently 16 employees that include mechanical, body, paint and upholstery technicians plus an administrative support staff.
    Precision Restorations, which was founded by Oestreich in 2008, provides restoration and customization for antique, vintage and classic cars and trucks. Specialties include mechanical restoration and upgrades; custom and stock interiors; professional body and trim restoration; aluminum body restoration and fabrication, and; paint work ranging from driver quality to show quality and custom design.
