Some times people get confused about the difference between a paint job and a restoration. You can have a nice repaint for $5,000.00 but to restore one would be very expensive. To make a muscle car show quality and perfect is over restoring. They were full of flaws and misalignments when new. To make a car flawless could easily take 500 hrs. 500 x $60.00 per hr =$30,000.00 just in labor.
