VINTAGE AUTO SERVICE
We offer regular service and maintenance on 1974 and earlier classic and vintage vehicles, particularly on those earlier models and systems that most shops are no longer able to work on. Engine electrical components such as ignition distributors with mechanical switching (aka “points”), generators and six volt electrical systems that are not welcome in most shops are welcome here. We service and repair carburetors, whether they are American four barrels, British SUs or Strombergs, Italian Webers or Japanese Mikunis. We service and repair early mechanical fuel injection such as the Spica system on the Alfa Romeo, the Kugelfischer on the early BMW or the Rochester system on the early Corvette.
The limiting factor in servicing vintage and classic vehicles is very often whether parts are available for a particular model or style. Having been servicing classics for many years, we have built contacts for many different parts sources, particularly for British cars and especially for Jaguar. We stock many of the maddening little clips, fasteners, copper washers and O-rings that are constantly needed on most British cars. We also have many used parts, though mostly mechanical.
We do not offer services to vehicles with electronic engine management systems and other computer-driven operating systems, but are happy to offer referral to those who do.
