Welcome to Crushproof
Our shop, located in central Austin, is dedicated to the repair, restoration and performance
modification of Muscle Cars, Classic Cars and Hot Rods. We appreciate working with anyone that enjoys the hobby, and
treat all cars with the same respect whether it is a '67 Mustang Fastback, a '32 roadster or a 51 Chevy pick up that just
needs to keep on living it's life. We don't just restore cars, we offer full repair services.
If your classic car needs a simple tune up, your muscle car finally is going
to get that disc brake conversion, or you are considering a major project, send us an email, give us a call, or drop by the
shop. We always have a variety of cars on hand, and you can see the work in progress.

As the body was being stripped to metal, it became apparent how much rust repair was going to be required in the back
half of the car, the easiest of which was replacing the entire drivers quarter panel to the jams with an original quarter
as a donor. The aftermarket replacements are not workable. The engine is an aluminum headed 462 stroker built
by Larry Shultz, with 690 horsepower, and an amazing 750 foot pounds of torque on pump gas. The car handles amazingly
well on a rebuilt chassis using current standards in suspension and steering replacement parts, with no modifications.
was bought a few months back at a major auction, but on it's inuagarel voyage the brakes failed, and it was stopped by a vintage
feed truck. All the collision damage has been repaired, incluiding the grill, grill moldings, and the customer decided
to go ahead and repaint the entire car.
The brakes had been rebuilt with parts from a 1936 Truck, and simply
didn't work. By great fortune, we found all the NOS parts for the system, and have restored the system to original.
