About the company

Classic Autobody is a professionally run, family-owned and operated Auto body repair shop in the San Francisco Bay Area. Brothers Steve and Chris Torp have utilized their extensive automotive background in creating a successful business. In 1968, Chris began working for an automotive parts company in San Francisco as a delivery driver and quickly moved into the sales department. He then made his way to an automotive glass and refinish supply company while Steve became a parts delivery driver in 1972.

In 1978, Steve joined his brother at the glass and refinish supply company. Five years later, Chris decided to take a job at a premier Auto body shop in Marin where he ran it for 10 years. In 1984, Steve also went to work for a premier body shop, located in San Francisco. After gaining a broad and comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of the automotive industry, the Torp brothers decided to take over Classic Autobody in 1988 and have ran it successfully for the past 25+ years! Throughout the years, they have developed a solid business structure, a hand-picked team of qualified technicians, and a pristine shop with top notch services.
