Vintage cars are more than just vehicles. They are automotive legends, they tell stories and they inspire our dreams. At our Vintage Car Restoration Workshop we bring all our knowledge and experience to bear in preserving these legends and restoring them as authentically as possible. Using both finest hand crafting skills and state-of-the-art technologies, we make them last for ever.
In our own workshop, using the highest level of hand craftmanship, we reproduce parts and components that are no longer available. Our car body construction specialists have decades of experience in this very demanding craft. True experts at what they do, they can reproduce any form, no matter how complex, as a faithful replica of the original.
Our patented Oldtimer-Ro-Dip process for vintage cars enables us to safeguard newly restored vintage bodywork against corrosion, providing 100% protection over the car’s entire lifetime. The process combines cathodic dip coating with a special rotation method that allows the coating to penetrate fully into all cavities.
With the aid of computer-operated measuring devices and drawing on our decades of experience, we determine the perfect colour and paint composition for your vintage car, and carry out the painting work in our own paint shop.
We can also provide lasting protection against rust for an existing car body that does not require full restoration. After a preliminary treatment with dry ice blasting and endoscopic examination, we apply a sealing coat of oils and waxes specially designed for your vintage or classic car. Learn more
I chose Schad Originale for the restoration of my 300 SEL because they have a lots of experience with these new technologies. The vehicle was in a terrible condition. Only after the dry-ice blasting we could assess the amount of the work necessary to restore it. In fact, they have rebuilt the entire car. If you spend this much money you want to be sure it’s worth is. That is why for me treating the entire chassis with the vintage car cathodic dip coating was the only option. Now the car looks wonderful. And it is a great feeling to cruise around with this memorial family piece and not having to worry about corrosion ever again.
I would never have thought that the rear end of my car could look better after the accident than it had before. Your bodywork experts are true masters of their craft! Thank you so much for your wonderful work.
I am so moved to have my treasured classic back. Thank you for your support throughout the whole repair process. For me, having such a competent and reliable partner in such a difficult and complicated situation has been invaluable.
I searched for a long time to find a restorer to whom I could hand over my vintage car with confidence. At SCHAD, I had the feeling from the very beginning that I had found the right place. Your meticulous and high-quality work completely won me over.
It took several months before I could drive my beloved classic car again, but it was well worth the wait. Now that it has been fully restored, I know that I can pass my classic car on to the next generation with a clear conscience. Thank you for your truly exceptional work and the ongoing excellent support.
I have never seen this combination of craftsmanship and technology anywhere else. I am very impressed by the way in which my vintage car, which had been showing its age, has now become a real gem. Thank you!
