Quick info: it appears Wargaming has finally added back the vehicle restoration function to the shop with yesterday's micropatch. The function, which has been in the game since update 9.16, allows for restoration of sold premium tanks directly from inside the game client -- for standard premiums, within 3 days of selling the vehicle, while "special" premiums can be restored whenever (no time limit). Upon introduction of the new shop, the function was still available, but could not be done directly through the shop itself -- a complicated workaround was required to get it to work previously. Thankfully, this is no longer the case -- the feature can now be found in Depot » Vehicles in the Garage » Recovery.
(As a reminder, only vehicles sold from the game client after the introduction of the feature [around update 9.16] will be available for recovery in the in-game store. Depending on your region's policies, vehicles sold before then may be available for recovery through Wargaming support [for example, NA allows for up to 4 vehicle restoration tickets per calendar year].)
