Hello and welcome to Bud’s Classic Car
I’ve owned and restored Galaxies for over 40 years, restoring personally since 1979 and professionally for 20 years. In 2009, with enormous support from my wife, I began my own restoration business, constructed a shop and have been facilitating 1st rate restoration on many American marques – classic and muscle.
My first car in 1975 was a 1963 R-Code fastback and I’ve been hooked since. I currently own an X-Code 1963 Galaxie 500 convertible that I purchased from the original owner in 1979. I’ve since completed a frame-up nut and bolt restoration on it preserving originality where possible. I’ve also owned several other Galaxies through the years and currently have two in line for restoration.
During the restoration of my convertible I found Greg Donahue. After talking with him and getting his catalog, he became my only choice for parts, as he always had what I needed and I knew that his parts were the best available. Through the years, I’ve continued to talk with and buy parts for customer restorations.
In March 2016, we got the opportunity to meet Greg and his wife after accepting the opportunity to check out possibility of purchasing of his parts inventory, supplier contacts and molds. We recognized that this was a “once in a lifetime” opportunity and went forward with the purchase.
We have continued offering the high-quality parts Greg had offered for 42 years while adding new parts to the availability. I look forward to assisting you during your projects – big or small.
