Finish is a reflection of effort.
That is our philosophy. Whether repairing accident damage, restoring vintage vehicles from any condition to concourse-winning standard, or designing and building entire custom car bodies from scratch, we put in whatever efforts required to achieve the desired results. We work on all cars from all over the world.
We appreciate vehicles of all sizes, makes and models. We work on Australian, European, American and Japanese vehicles. For any enquiries, please give us a call or pop in and see us in person.

Our aim is to exceed our customers’ expectations of quality workmanship and attention to detail while delivering a fair price.
Marque Restorations are one-off Coachwork specialists. We can take your vision, whether inspired by the past or a totally unique concept, from drawing board to driving car. Using the best of both traditional and modern techniques, our master craftsmen can bring your idea to life.
Mechanical repairs and part fabrication to classic cars, pre 70's vehicles a speciality. We can rebuild or repair to "as new", engines, gearboxes, differentials, suspension and exhausts etc. We also offer general servicing, maintenance and tuning services to keep your prized machine in tip-top shape.
First impressions count, if your paint finish isn't up to scratch, it won't matter how good the bodywork is. Getting the paint right is as equally important as the body repair process itself. We take pride in our craft, and using only premium quality products, with end results worthy of a concourse winner.
Marque Restoration also provides general panel repair services, from fixing minor dents and scratches to custom fabrication to replace damaged bodywork, whether collision damage or corrosion. It doesn't matter if your vehicle is steel, aluminium, composite or a combination thereof, we can repair it.
Feature Restoration - 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE
Being given the chance to restore cars of any type is both exciting and challenging.
The car owners place their trust in my staff and ultimately with me to give them a car that meets their expectation. A car that they can use and enjoy for many years. A car that could be offered for sale at some time in the future and bring a premium price. This responsibility we take on board and the quality of the work done at every step of the way reflects this.
Such was the challenge when Vern Schuppan brought us the 1962 FERRARI 250 GTE SERIES II.
It had been unregistered for 44 years.
This (RHD) car was delivered new to an official Swiss Ferrari dealer J.H.Keller AG in Zurich, Switzerland. Keller shipped the new car to Australia to an unknown buyer.
Last registered 1974, the Victorian registration number SM013 is still in place on the LH butterfly window.
The first known owner after 1974 was Silvio Massola who had a service station in Hawthorn Rd, East Brighton.
In 1987 Massola sold the car to John Rosar of the Ferrari specialist Pursang Motors. According to Mr Rosar neither he nor Silvio Massola ever registered the car, driving it only occasionally on company trade plates. Vern Schuppan purchased it in 2015, the speedo showed a total of 34,700km.
