Vintage and Exotic Auto Body & Restoration - FZ Restoration Livermore


In today's world of mass production, it is refreshing to find true artists who still take real pride in their craft and have the experience required to work on exotic automobiles.
FZ restoration maintains a tradition of excellence and fine craftsmanship that has been carried through two generations, originally brought to this country from Italy.

Through years of learning and hard work, Frank has mastered the techniques of hand-forming the curves of such aluminum-bodied classics as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Alfa Romeo -- and carried this skill to the newer aluminum-bodied high performance marques of Porsche, BMW and Land Rover.

Here is what one of FZ Restoration’s happy Customers

“Like so many of Frank Zucchi’s clients, I have been extremely happy with his services for over twenty-five years!

Referred years ago to the Zucchi family business, looking to repair my first Alfa Romeo; I feel lucky to have met Frank while he was learning his trade working for his father and mentor Arnold, a master Ital-Swiss artisan of bodywork. During this long relationship Frank has subsequently done all my repair body and paint work, and has also performed full re-paints from bare metal or fiberglass on several of my street and Vintage race cars.

Frank does superb work: but what I most appreciate about working with him is that he is straight forward and honest in his work ethic. Unfortunately body and paint work leaves tremendous opportunity to take short cuts that will only show up years latter. Frank will not compromise his work, if something needs to be done to “make it right’” Frank will do it, and often at his expense.

Over the years I have brought Frank some old and unusual automobiles, with body panels not available and more importantly rust or miserable paint and bodywork is often found underneath what appears to be a decent but tired finish. This means Frank’s work is doubly difficult: he will need to correct badly deteriorated metal and/or correct years-old short-cuts, before he can begin the work that will show. This takes an artisan’s eye, and superb metal and painting skills. Frank possesses all.

I am certain you will enjoy working with Frank as much as I have over these many years; whether repairing a dinged fender on a new Mercedes or repainting a classic Ferrari or Porsche."
