Most recomended professional vehicle restorer?

I'm looking to restore my '66 Mercury if she does'nt sell by new years, But the level of work she needs is beyond my capabilities. I was wondering if anyone knew of a professional shop that does a full ground up restoration on old vehicles. She needs quite a bit done,its just with the little amount of time I have and resources, a shop would be a better choice. Honestly.

Thanks.

I don't see where you are from.. but there is a very small 2 man shop in Michigan called "Konik's Klassiks" the guy and his son run it from his home shop. It may not look it, being run from his home barn(s) but he does A1 quality work, and nothing less.
I used to work for him when I lived in Michigan so I know

give him a call

As of right now, Not much. I'm selling her to pay bills. But if she does'nt, Then in a couple of years or so if not sooner, I'd like to get started. Since this would be a first for me honestly, for a "rough canadite" what is the going rate?
She needs both panels by the fuel tank replaced because they have rusted through due to the weather stripping rotting away, the trunk lid re-done and part of the driver side trunk quater re-worked from her rear end collision and shoddy work being done, MAYBE rear sub frame work (not completely sure.), re-shaping of the rear metal under trunk lid, Basicly the wreck she was in before I got her did her in so a good body man would have to look at it. The front floor boards need replaced from cancer because of a water leak in the windsheild, trim work, all hardware replaced with correct/original, body gone over for straigtining, complete interior, wiring.... To sum it up, a COMPLETE ground up job done. Shes rough, But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I know she can be a beautiful car again and look as good as she runs.
BTW, I'm in Houston, Texas.
My wife would kill me if she knew what I was up to. She was ready to kill me when I bought it, Then for my 21st birthday she bought a complete intake for it. 4 barrel Edelbrock 650 cfm carb, intake and air cleaner. Granted being on the gulf coast the chrome plating has worn and surface rust has setteled but some polishing should buff it out.
