Al's Body Shop

Specializing in color matching  and small repairs, we make your car look new again. With our fast friendly service we will have you back on the road in no time. 

We are a  small family owned repair facility and have been at the same location for nearly 50 years. 

Al's Body Shop opened in 1966, when Street Rods and Muscle Cars were all the rage. We started the business as a hobby shop, building cars to make them look good and go fast. Eventually we grew into a full service paint shop and collision facility specializing in collision and spot repair.

We work with all insurance companies and provide our clients with high quality repairs in a very quick turn around time. We offer precise color matching, and you can bet, your car will look better than it did when you brought it in.

As part of our service, each car is thoroughly cleaned inside and out. This not only serves as an added service, but in general a clean car leads to a cleaner repair. Give us a call, or drop in. You and your car will be happy you did.
