WELCOME TO HILL”S AUTOMOTIVE

 

 

Hill’s Automotive has been catering to the classic car enthusiast for over 35 years.  Hill’s Automotive has three different divisions. Our Classic Car Restoration Services, Classic Car Sales, and our 55-57 Thunderbird Parts division known as Hill’s Thunderbird Center.

Hill’s Classic Car Restorations has continually restored some of the top show cars in the nation.  Our award winning restorations have been judged and awarded “Best of Show”, “Grand National”, “Gold Medallion” and numerous other awards by CTCI, AACA, and various Concourse de Elegance shows.  While best known for our frame-off concourse restorations, we also perform resto-mod, street-rod, and driver quality restorations.

Hill’s Classic Cars Sales consists of an ever changing variety of collector cars from performance muscle cars to European sportsters.  Not all of the cars we sell have been restored by us.  In fact, many of the cars are offered for sale prior to restoration.  For more details, check out our Cars for Sale section.

OUR HISTORY

 

 

Having started out restoring 55-57 Thunderbirds, Marvin Hill grew his restoration business to the level where he needed a constant supply of 1955, 1956, and 1957 NOS and reproduction parts for his Thunderbirds.  With the demand for parts being driven by the ongoing success of the restoration business, it was only a matter of time until Hill’s Automotive took over as a parts distributor for 55-57 Thunderbirds.  Hill’s Thunderbird Center offers top of the line parts, including a complete line of reproduction, N.O.S., and used parts for 1955, 1956, and 1957 Thunderbirds.  Hill’s is also offering the Resto-Mod Drive Train.  Quality, experience, and award winning are just a few of the words our customers associate with Hills Automotive.  If you are looking for a classic car restoration, you have come to the right place.  At Hill’s Automotive, classic car restoration services is our specialty.  We have been bringing classics back to life for over 25 years.  Our experienced and award winning fabricators and body and paint departments are the reason why our cars stand out from the rest.
