Have you gone to a regular shop and tried to have your carburetor rebuilt, or your vacuum-advance distributor fixed? If so, you were probably shot down. Most repair facilities refuse to work on classic cars and their vintage components – but at Gary’s Automotive, that’s our specialty.
Keeping classic cars and trucks running like new. Since 1985, we have been fixing vintage vehicles like the Chevy Belair, Plymouth Cuda, and Ford Mustang. In a world full of computerized hybrid cars, we’re one of the few shops that still appreciates the classics.
A full range of classic vehicle services. Other repair facilities may agree to perform an oil change on your vintage ride, but that’s about it. At Gary’s Automotive, we do it all – from complete engine overhauls to simple tune-ups.
Some classic car repair services we perform include:
Classic Car Repairs
Steering and suspension
Transmission and drivetrain
We also perform routine maintenance such as:
Fluid exchanges (engine oil, transmission, coolant, etc.)
Filter replacement (air, fuel, etc.)
When we say we do it all, we mean it. If there’s something you don’t see on the list, just give us a call.
Old-school savvy technicians
These days, no one at the dealership knows how to tune a carburetor. They’re too caught up with electronics and computer controls. But with us, things are different. Our old-school savvy technicians have decades of experience working on vintage vehicles. They know how to tweak distributor points, tune a carb, adjust four-wheel drum brakes – all the classic maneuvers.
The right tools and equipment
Classic cars don’t need fancy scan tools or oscilloscopes, but they do require some equipment few shops have. At Gary’s Automotive, we have all the goodies you used to see in your dad’s garage: carburetor adjustment tools, dwell meters – you name it. Plus, we have access to the service manuals needed to fix your vintage ride right the first time.
We also love classic trucks
Our devotion to vintage vehicles isn’t limited to cars – we also love classic trucks! Bring your 1950s Ford, or classic square-body Chevy pickup to us for superior service. Our expert technicians will have it running like new – or better.
