  • Original Restoration & Resto-Mods

    Restoring a classic or muscle car back to period-correct condition presents unique challenges and these projects often require reversing several decades worth of subpar repairs.  Likewise, with cars of this era, parts can be difficult to find or are no longer available. Fortunately, we have the experience and resources necessary to restore your classic back to your goal whether it’s driver quality or show-quality condition.


    In order to uncover all potential problem areas, we start with a complete disassembly of the vehicle during the frame-off  restoration process when necessary. Through our extensive network of suppliers we can track down hard-to-find parts like emblems, hood ornaments, and trim pieces. In the event that these items can’t be found, we have the resources and fabrication ability to restore rare original parts, or build new ones from scratch. While we specialize in complete restorations, we also offer a variety of stand-alone services for your project. Whether your classic car is in need of metal work, a custom paint job, suspension repair, an engine rebuild, or some electrical help, Dark Horse Customs can help you pull off the car cover and get back on the road.

  • Mechanical, Alignments & Suspension

    There are a variety of approaches available for your vehicle’s mechanical restoration… everything from a simple tune up to full mechanical upgrades. We provide concise estimates, and our quality assurance process lets our customers know that we will exceed their restoration expectations. In addition, the same technician that completes the mechanical work provides continuity from the very beginning of the process and assists in the development of the labor and parts estimate.

  • Performance & Dynamometer Services

    You’ve invested in your vehicle but every time you drive it down the road you feel like you are leaving horsepower at the last light.  At Dark Horse Customs, we’ll make sure your engine reaches its full potential. If you have a carbureted classic and want to make a few changes to get it perfect or if you want to upgrade to modern fuel injection, we can handle that also. Our State-of- the Art Dynojet Dynamometer gives us all the tools to make sure it is running perfect. We treat every vehicle with the care and dedication that we would want for our own car. We have extensive knowledge in a wide variety of performance upgrade components for gas or diesel vehicles. Give us a call to find the right electronic power adder, exhaust, air intake, supercharger, or turbo  for your vehicle.  In addition to optimizing your car, you’ll get the bragging rights that come with it—you’ll know exactly what kind of power the car is making. Information like that allows you to enjoy your classic or modern just a little bit more. And that’s the point.

  • Trail Vehicle Outfitting
