Award Winning 1969 GTX Restoration by Murphy's Classic Restorations, Dover Ohio

Best-in-Class Model T

In 2000, after having owned our 1923 Model T touring car for thirty-five years, we decided that a frame-off restoration was in order.  A friend told us of Murphy's Classic Restorations and we made the contact, meeting Mark Murphy at that time.  Murphy's had not tackled a restoration of an antique auto this old but were willing to try.  Our goal was to have an immaculate "driver" as enjoying the drive is more important to us than having a "trailer queen".


The rest is history!  Our car was judged best in class at the Model T Ford Club International's 100 Years of Ford in Detroit and we have enjoyed nice weather Sunday afternoons with the car since.  Numerous other awards have come our way, thanks to the meticulous job that was done by Mark and the guys.


The friendship with the staff in the shop is on-going.  It is so good to be able to stop there periodically, see the projects in process, and feel welcomed as a friend rather than simply a customer.  We would encourage anyone considering a restoration to make the contact.
