Classic Car Custom Restoration, Street Rod Restoration, and Custom Muscle Car Restoration Projects are what we do best at Holton Secret Lab.

Holton Secret Lab was launched from its parent company, Holton Restorations, to focus on our specialized classic car custom restoration projects. We have more than 90 years experience in custom car painting, custom car design, fabrication, and restoration of classic cars, muscle cars and street rods. Give us a set of plans or a napkin sketch and watch us make your dreams a reality. 

The Holton Legacy can be traced back to 1945. Just after returning from World War II, Herb Holton opened Vale Autobody in Vale, Oregon. He was well-known and had a reputation as a craftsman. Herb’'s son Bill grew up in his dad'’s shop, and quickly learned to craft fine automobiles right alongside his father. In those days, the rare Muscle Cars and Street Rods that we work on today were the cars that Bill learned his trade on. He spent many, many hours in the shop honing his skills as a designer and fabricator on these classic cars.

    Are you searching for the right facility for your Classic Car Restoration or Muscle Car Restoration?

    We call ourselves the “Secret Lab” because we live and work on a large piece of land in Eastern Oregon, where there'’s not much around us except wheat farms. Since Bill began apprenticing in the family car repair business 45 years ago, he'’s learned what works and what doesn'’t in the world of custom car restoration. Our “Secret” facility is fully customized, down to the lighting and the custom-built rotisserie, to allow us access to every part of your car, no matter what kind of car it is.
