General to Full blown custom:
Auto Service of Old Saybrook
Old Saybrook, CT
860-388-6838 ask for Billy
While not a Ford guy, Billy has some of the nicest Mopars you have ever seen. He does general mechanical as well as lots of custom one-off work for various customers in the area. He takes great care in everything he does, is straight-up dead honest, and has an extremely well equipped and clean shop. Current projects are a 29 Ford pickup street rod and an LS-1 into an 87 Monte SS. I send all of my friends to him for even the most general work, he's the most honest mechanic I've ever met, that's why I worked for him a few years back.
Woody's Auto Body
860-399-6644 ask for Pete
Pete is the guy who is painting my 71 Mach. He's been very helpful and is extremely knowledgable. This is a busy body shop, so he doesn't have a ton of time to chat, but his work speaks for itself. He and his employees really enjoy working on older vehicles, and lavish extra attention on them. Pete also did my buddy John's 70 Roadrunner. Absolutely gorgeous paintjob, still looks A-1 awesome after 7 years!
Atwood's Auto Body
Deep River, CT
Atwood's is owned by Billy's brother George. He is as straight up as his brother, and has an excellent staff of highly skilled employees. Atwood's just rebuilt their entire operation to include new spray booths and more room. George painted Billy's 69 Hemi GTX, which is absolutely the cleanest car I have ever seen.
Well, why ME! I do a lot of small projects for different people, from simple engine or tranny installations to full on conversions such as the 67 Fairlane Convert I did a 460 swap on with a full fuel system and complete suspension re-work. I also do interior, electrical and just about anything else but bodywork. I have a 2K sqr foot shop and have just about any equipment I might need. If you've got somethin you don't want to tackle yourself, drop me a line and let me know what you're looking for. I'm located in Deep River, CT
