Bachmann Oldtimerrestauration

Our company, Bachmann Oldtimerrestauration, was founded on 15 November 2009 by Heiko and Elaine Bachmann in Neumalsch.

We have specialised in the professional restoration of vintage cars of an extremely wide range of models dating from the 1920s to the 1950s. We were particularly impressed by the luxury makes and models of the pre-war period. Our excellently trained employees and their craftsmanship skills mean we always manage to turn our customers’ every desire into a reality.

We don’t just have a soft spot for the pre-war period, which forms the core of our business; every model of vintage car is close to our hearts. And that’s why, unlike our competitors, we don’t specialise in specific makes or models. Acquiring years of experience with an extremely wide range of models allowed us to build up a great deal of know-how for all the treasures of the vintage car world.

We aren’t just passionate about restoring old vehicles; we also love developing technical solutions for various models. It’s all the same to us whether you have a simple mass-produced vehicle or a unique piece from the luxury segment, we aim to offer our customers consistent work quality at all times and to meet their requirements in full.
