In less than eleven months, Fred Jeffries of Fred’s Auto Body Restoration and Repair, Manalapan, New Jersey, transformed an 1955 International Harvester truck body that would have looked sad in a junkyard into a classic the owner was delighted to drive away. Fred documented the meticulous process in photos and videos. You’ll discover why Fred’s Auto Body Repair NJ is one of the great auto body restorers still doing this type of special auto body work.
The truck arrived at Fred’s Auto Body on October 31, 2014. It was barely road worthy. The chassis and frame were in decent condition with average rust. The first step was to discover and repair any issues that might affect the owner’s ability to drive safely.
The challenge was to repair and restore the truck appearance, inside and out, to as close to its factory showroom appearance as possible. Only an exceptional auto body restorer like Fred can pull off this kind of detailed and difficult auto body restoration. Check out the owner’s smile as he drives home in his beautiful “new” truck.
