9 Essential Classic Car Accessories & Aftermarket Upgrades

classic car accessoriesIt’s no secret that classic car owners tend to have a strong attachment to their vehicles. In part, that’s because classic car projects allow owners to personalize their ride and to create their dream car. Thanks to advances in modern technology, classic car owners are now able to enjoy the style and power of classic vehicles –– along with new amenities to improve the driving experience. With that in mind, today we’ll review nine essential classic car accessories and aftermarket upgrades that will take your car to the next level. Check them out here:

Upgraded Brakes, Wheels, & Suspension

For individuals who plan on using their classic car as a daily driver, upgraded brakes, wheels, and suspension are often savvy investments. Not only will they improve the performance of a classic car, but they are also important safety features too. Classic cars are not the easiest cars to handle, so drivers unaccustomed to classic vehicles may benefit from mechanical upgrades.

Fuel System Upgrades

Improving the fuel efficiency of your classic car can be a fantastic way to reduce your costs and carbon-footprint at the same time. 

Heating & Air Conditioning

Though classic cars look incredibly sleek and modern, they often lack seemingly basic amenities such as heating and air conditioning. If you plan on driving your classic car in very cold or very warm weather, consider having a heating/cooling system installed.  

Entertainment System

A new entertainment system can significantly add to your enjoyment of a classic vehicle. A new radio, speaker system, CD player, or other entertainment features are all solid investments for new classic car owners. 

Rearview Camera

Even a fender-bender in a parking lot can cause serious damage to a classic car. That’s why rearview cameras are a wise choice for classic car owners. Plus, these devices are relatively cheap (you can find one for under $100) and straightforward to install.

Pedestal Spoiler

A pedestal spoiler can –– at high speeds –– cut down on drag and make a classic car more aerodynamic. They also happen to look very cool as well. 

Rear Window Defroster

Many classic cars were built before the era of heated rear windows. As such, defroster adhesives are quality safety features that will make driving in cold temperatures safer and more enjoyable. 

New Paint Job

Is a classic car project really complete without a new paint job? To make your classic car look truly special, consider investing in a personalized paint job. Just make sure to trust professionals to paint your classic car. A lackluster paint job can ruin the look of an excellent classic vehicle. 

Personal Effects

At the end of the day, only you can decide how to update and decorate your classic car. So if you want to purchase classic car accessories like a pair of fuzzy dice to hang over your dashboard, or a vintage antenna ball for nostalgic purposes, then go for it! Classic cars are great investments, and it’s a good decision to look after it and to upgrade it how you see fit.
