About the company

Classic Autobody is a professionally run, family-owned and operated auto body repair shop in Berkeley, California. Cultivated by the capable hands of brothers Steve and Chris Torp, our premium shop has been serving the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 30 years. Before taking ownership of Classic Autobody in 1988, the Torp brothers did their due diligence, accumulating extensive knowledge of the automotive industry by working their way through the ranks from delivery driver to sales. The brothers worked together at an automotive glass and refinish supply company for several years, and then went on to work in managerial positions at premier auto body shops in Marin and San Francisco respectively.

By the time the Torps began their reign at Classic Autobody in 1988, their strong business acumen, considerable experience in the industry, and natural affinity for everything automotive became the perfect recipe for state-of-the-art repairs and satisfied customers. With three decades of exceptional service under our belts, our shop works like a well-oiled machine, boasting a hand-picked team of highly qualified technicians, a pristine shop with top-notch services, and a warm, welcoming environment that will make you feel right at home!

FAREWELL CHRIS! All of us at Classic Autobody would like to extend the most heartfelt well wishes and positive vibes to Chris as he rides into retirement in style! Much love from the Classic Autobody team!
