The American Old Timers of the KOVÁCS brothers

Anyone who has stumbled upon this page may have had the same boyhood love affair with cars as we did. Even as kids we were only interested in the CAR, to drive it, to feel it's speed, and to get ahead. That is what was important.

Over the years we've learned that what mostly attracted us was the American STYLE, SHAPE and STORY. The era in which car- designers' and customers' dreams have met and became a reality. These cars were truly works of wonder to us, in the world of European automobiles.

Our goal became clear; that is to make these cars availabe to those who share our mutual attraction to the American style, strength and rich elegance.

In 2002, we imported our very first Old Timer from across the pond. The vehicle's chassis was so badly corroded, that it became obvious to us it wasn't going to pass the National Old Timer Inspections. So we have decided to fully restore the car. Seeing the great results, from friends and aquaintances we were asked to restore their vehicles as well. And that is how it all got started. Since then, we have gained many years of knowledge, experience and routine in the field of dealership and home delivery.

Why do we restore in Hungary?

Since our cars ship exclusively from the US, it is imperative for us to oversee the restoration process. To ensure quality workmanship and avoid unpleasent surprises on vehicles renewed elsewhere. These risk factors are present even if our colleagues inspect the classic cars, so with the more prized automobiles we take the time and effort to personally investigate the vehicle's condition.

Old and New at the same time!

Our main goal with all of our Old Timers, may it be a classic or a muscle-car, is to preserve or purchase original parts for the restoration. For this reason what we do is even more than just mere restoration it is also a complete renewal of the vehicle, that results in more durability and longer life-span of the car. This painstaking process includes a complete overhaul of the engine area, corsing of the undercarriage, refurbishing the interior, chrome-plating various parts and making the car-body soundproof and airtight. Rewelding loose body joints and unique suface painting are just a few of the many necessary steps with old vehicles with out-dated manufacturing techniques.

We always strive to save and preserve original parts as much as possible. This may seem like a lot of work, but it is the only way to minimize the use of refabricated parts.

Galvanizing and Paintjobs.

Our vehicles receive corrosion retardant and galvanizing treatment in our own workshop, which you can view for more information in the Partners menu. For best quality results in our renewal process, we also avoid using sintering and sand blasting as much as we can.

On our webpage you can see almost all there is to see of the performed work on all available and already sold Old Timer American Cars.

Bonuses:

  • All vehicles puchased in Hungary are provided with FIVA quality and National Old Timer inspection documents.
  • Vehicles are available to be delivered to any part of the world.
  • If you decide to visit our dealership in Budapest, we will pay for your stay in a beautiful 4-star hotel.

Please don't hesitate to reach us with any questions or comments.

Hope to see you soon!

We wish you a pleasent journey!

In 1941 this oldtimer was a pace car at the Indianapolis 500. When it was introduced to the public as an independent brand it was an instant success. At the time it sold for $ 2964.

Originally this classic car came in a dark green exterior and interior with power steering, servo brakes, air conditioning with 2 doors and a hardtop.
