Innovative Restorations Inc. officially opened its doors in 2014, however it truly started long before then.
Here’s a look at our history and how we got started.
Owner Adam Bradley has always had an interest in classic vehicles and the craftsmanship they embody.
His first classic car was a 1970 Buick Skylark that he bought the summer before his senior year of high school with a goal to get it driving in time for his senior prom.
After graduating high school and being offered a job at a local body shop where he sanded and taped cars for refinishing, Adam began to learn more from his coworkers and decided to further his education at Baran Institute of Technology where he gained skills in vehicle repairs, metal fabrication and refinishing.
In his career at a collision shop, Adam quickly became the head technician in the paint department, and although working on modern cars, he continued to grow his passion for classic cars by spending his free time restoring classic vehicles in his home garage.
Over the years Adam’s customer base grew along with his desire to make restorations a full-time career.
In the spring of 2014, Innovative Restorations Inc. opened its doors.
After two years of operating out of a 3,800 square foot facility in Durham, CT, we decided to relocate the shop to Adam’s hometown of Wallingford, Connecticut. The new home of Innovative Restorations has allowed the business to keep up with a growing customer base.
All of our technicians take pride in being honest and hard working. Whether it be a full restoration, or providing service for a daily driver, our dedication lies in helping customers to maintain their vehicle for as long as they have it.
