The Restoration Shop List

I have been meaning to do this for quite a while.  I receive job requests from all over North America due to our website and instagram account being well known.  I then refer those people who contact me to the closest shop.

One thing I love about the vintage Willys and military vehicle community is that all the shops play nice with each other, so I want to make sure those of you with work to be done get to and support your closest restoration shop. (and why pay to ship something a long distance if there is a shop nearby?)

I do not receive any payment for this. So here is a list of restoration shops around the US specializing in vintage Jeeps and military vehicles.

The shop list:

  • Army Jeep Parts. George Baxter.  Levittown, PA. (215) 269-5014 Not only are they my favorite parts supplier, but George has a restoration and repair shop as well.  They do work from highly detailed restorations to repairs.


  • Brian and Carl Cessna. Hanover, PA.  From big to small, if it’s OD green Brian and his father work on them all.  Email Brian at
