Restorations

Why do you restore classic Ferraris?

The founder of Brandoli, Egidio Brandoli, worked for 2 decades in the Scaglietti body shop in Modena, becoming a pupil of the “Sarto Delle Rosse”, Sergio Scaglietti. 

Do you only restore Ferrari cars?

Absolutely not! Classic Ferraris remain our speciality, but we have solid experience on Abarths, Alfa Romeos, Maseratis, Pininfarinas, Zagatos and others.

How do you arrive at the quote for the restoration project?

In the phase in which the car condition is analyzed, we use the services of all the necessary craftsmen for your restoration project who, having been specifically selected by us, work with us to arrive at the final result. Restoration for us is a team effort: a team composed of the best possible players.
The quotation phase finishes with a personal meeting with you: we present the project in our workshop, and show you the result of our inspection on disassembled car which is physically present.  

Do you do “turnkey” restorations?

We can manage the restoration of the bodywork for you, or you can assign the entire project to us. In this case, we coordinate the work of all the craftsmen that work together with the objective of achieving an excellent final result: the restoration of the mechanics, the paintwork, the electrics, the interior, the chassis and the chrome plating. Our objective is to give you a fully roadworthy car.  

How long does it take to restore a car?

We can’t give a standard time. 
It’s unusual for the complete restoration of a car – including the bodywork, paintwork, electrics, mechanics and interior – to take less than 14 months.

How much does it cost to restore a classic car?

It depends on the condition of the car and the work required, which may not be limited to the bodywork and may require the intervention of other professionals: the mechanic, electrician and upholsterer are all professionals that we involve in the project, if necessary, in order to give the Customer an accurate quotation.

How do you manage the Ferrari Classiche Certificate of Authenticity?

We follow the car through the entire certification process, also making use of the services of specialized professionals. 

Assistance and Maintenance

Do you prepare classic cars for concours d’elegance, such as, for example, the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, Salon Privé or Cavallino Classic?

Yes, we have extensive experience in preparing cars for concours d’elegance, and our Customers’ successes always give us a great thrill! 

Do you prepare classic cars for regularity and speed rallies?

Certainly! Our aim is to make your car safe to run on roads and circuits.  

Do you offer periodic maintenance services for classic cars?

Certainly! Maintenance, especially periodic maintenance, is essential for keeping the car in good condition, to conserve its value over time and avoid expensive restoration costs.  

Bodywork Spare Parts

Can I ask you for parts that I’m unable to find anywhere?

Certainly! We can make them by hand, according to the manufacturing specifications.

What countries do you ship bodywork components to?

We have no restrictions: we ship to all over the world. 

What are the shipment times?

If the piece is available in the warehouse, shipment is immediate.
If the piece has to be made, we inform the Customer of the completion times with the quote.

Do you sell mechanical spare parts?

No. The parts that we offer are exclusively related to the bodywork. 

Payments

What types of payment do you accept?

The quotes for our services and spare parts are in EURO.

Is it possible to pay in instalments?

It depends on the type of service involved: 

  • restorations: we accept payment instalments;
  • parts available in stock: 100% payment upon order confirmation; 
  • parts made to order: we request a down payment, then the balance before shipment.
