The Classic Investments Story

Steve Bell, the founder and owner of Classic Investments, brings a lifetime fascination with speed and passion for excellence to his work.  He blends his creative instincts with an eye for color and design to bring you some of the finest, restored classic European cars you’ll find in Colorado and across the country.

In 1990 Steve founded Classic Investments.  The business originally started when he would locate, repair and restore “barn finds” in his one-car, dirt floor garage. Soon enough, the opportunity came to move to a building that served as his first warehouse / shop.  From there, the business continued to grow.  For the past 10 years Classic Investments has been housed in a roomy 8,000 square foot, climate controlled building.  There is ample space for engine and bodywork, as well as a beautifully lit showroom where you can see some of Steve’s finest inventory.


His fine restoration work has received numerous commendations — far too many to mention here.  A few of the restoration awards Steve has won include:

  • Platinum award for a 1966 Ferrari 275GTB.  This was for best in class at the prestigious 2007 Ferrari Concours Cavallino.
  • Taking first place in its class was a 1959 Porsche 356 Convertible at the worlds’ top Porsche Concourse ‘The Parade’ in 2010
  • Winning “Best in Class” at the Santa Fe Concorso in 2011 was his beautifully restored 1967 Maserati Ghibli.
  • “Best of Show” at the 2014 Colorado Concours d’Elegance for the 1955 Lancia Aurelia Spider B24S
  • “Best in Class” at the 2016 Amelia Island Concours with our recent ground-up restoration on the 1960 Aston Martin DB4
