Classic Car Maintenance Tips
Just Say No to Nonoriginal Upgrades
To maintain the value and functionality of your investment, keep as many of the original parts as possible. If you cannot keep all the parts that rolled off the line with your car, find stock parts from the same era to safeguard your vehicle’s value, function, and vintage charm.
Maintenance (Yes, Please)
Regular maintenance should start with oil changes. You or your mechanic should also check the battery, spark plugs, tires, ignition wires, rotor, filters, and other parts. Replace or repair parts when they become unsafe to utilize and don’t forget to top off your fluids regularly.
Waxing the car frequently can protect the original paint, so add that to your maintenance schedule. Additionally, washing the car with a soft rag and gentle automotive soap can help prevent the buildup of grime and road salt, protecting the chassis.
Store Your Classic Car Securely
Park your car in a garage or protected space. You can always show it off at the next show or cruise. Installing video cameras and alarms can help you feel confident that your pretty baby stays stay and sound.
Take It for a Spin
Rubber tires can dry out fast when you leave your car sitting. For many reasons, you should take your car around the block and down the road a few times a month. Besides, it’s another opportunity to show off your classic muscle car, Model T, or luxury vehicle.
