Welcome to the home page of CPR's website. CPR is located in Mesa Arizona and we are dedicated to performing high quality restorations and performance work on vintage Ferrari's and many other classic cars, primarily from the 60's through early 70's.  Our emphasis is on the "performance" part of the title as we believe any car should function as great as it looks. Since opening CPR in 2005, we have a proven track record of building some of the nicest cars in the Phoenix area. References for these cars are always available for you to speak with and share their experience with CPR.  We have built a team of very talented people as well as being car enthusiasts that are highly skilled at each step of the car building/restoration process. Each person who touches your car has a lifetime of passion and skill for these cars and they are treated as if they were our very own. Our goal at CPR is to complete your project in a timely fashion and see you drive away and start creating years of new memories.

We are quite honored and proud to have been generously awarded for our work on Robert Smalley's 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC at this years Cavallino 26 in Palm Beach. This was a long journey on the restoration of Mr. Smalley's 330 and to have our peers and the Judges notice the efforts of all of us here at Classic Performance Restorations was indeed quite an honor. Thank you to the Judges and staff at Cavallino 26 for putting on the nicest event we have been to. :-)  

Robert Smalley's 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC at the Cavallino Classic 26 in Palm Beach - 2017. The car was awarded the Platinum level and 1st in class of the 275, 330 and 365 class. We are honored to have also been the recipient of the Gerald Roush Memorial Cup award selected by the Judges for Ferrari that required the most research to restore to this top level condition. This is especially special to everyone involved as this was the car's first outing and first time shown since its' completion.  

1960 Aston Martin DB4 - Bob Smalley Collection

 CPR is very proud to have Mark Nemschoff as the new owner of Tom's 1964 Corvette that has been part of the Bob Smalley collection for the past 5 years. Mark owned an offshore race boat team campaining the Tommy Bahama MTI offshore cat up until a few years back and now has a refined collection of high end cars that are all the "best of the best". Mark had been looking for a midyear Corvette to add to his stable as he used to race a Midyear vette back in the 1970's. He looked at every midyear Corvette that was in town this past January (2013) and when he saw the blue car - it was a "must have". We look forward to working with Mark in the future!   

We are working with Mark D'Ambrosio with his fleet of Porsche 911's to create a wide body kit that Porsche itself would hopefully be proud of. There are 100's of hours into designing and shaping the parts on this car #1. It is the prototype for the future kits that Mark will be selling soon! 

 This is a Original 1970 GTO Judge Ram Air III 4 speed that is optioned very nice and is fully documented. Fortunately, the owner of the car intends on driving it and wants it to perform as good as it looks. So we have completely disassembled the motor and are completely balancing and blueprinting the motor so that it performs the way it did back in 1970. The body is laser straight and the car still retains all of it's original "born with" drive train and mechanicals. It has the PHS and the original Build Sheets that were found in the car.  Stay tuned for updates on this very rare and neat Judge! 

Skat Kitty #1 is finished and at home in the showroom where it will stay perfect for many years to come.
