welcome to auto body specialists


Auto Body Specialists was established in 1970 as a full service collision repair facility. For over thirty 36 years we have strived to be the finest in collision repair. As a young twenty year old, Michael Doerfler wanted to be the best.

Working in two shops after leaving the Navy, it was very clear that quality was not on most shops list of things that were important. He loved cars, the people who drove them and became friends with many over the years. That devotion now continues with the second generation of Doerfler’s.

Jay has picked up where Michael left off, spending more time with that attention to detail, using the latest technologies, materials and labor practices that have keep Auto Body Specialists as the premier shop in the area.

Many times it has crossed our mind, that people are not interested in honesty, integrity and that attention to detail we have always provided. But, after stepping back, we realize that is what got us here and it is where we want to stay.

With the insurance industries latest trend to save money at all costs, affecting not only the quality of repairs but the safety of the vehicle occupants, Auto Body Specialists has decided to move in a different direction and step ahead of our competition.

As we have done for many years, Auto Body Specialists has begun to focus on the restoration of classic cars and specialize in “muscle” cars of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. We will continue to repair collision damaged vehicles, only on our terms, terms of honesty and quality, not someone’s whose only concern is saving money for its stockholders.

We are one of the few shops who actually know who our true customer is, and that is you, the vehicle owner. If you allow us to restore you classic vehicle or repair your collision damaged one, we will cater to your needs and your needs alone. Our reputation has always been our best source of work and we will continue to build on that reputation with the second generation of repairers.

1970 Chevelle

1970 Chevelle SS 396 L-78

Bill Gage ordered this car brand new sometime in early August of 1969 and took delivery on 10-10-1969. Bill has had the misfortune of a few different shops making a real mess of his car over the years. So Bill is having us clean it up. We will be detailing the engine compartment, rebuilding the motor, rebuilding the front suspension, restoring the interior, and rewiring the complete car, along with fixing most of the paint issues created by a shop that just painted the car.

1969 GTO


Here is another great project from Bill Prizer. Bill brought us this GTO Judge as a complete basket case that needs everything. As I understand, this car is 1 of only 8 white GTO Judges built in 1969. It is also believed that this could be the only 1969 GTO Judge Ram III with a white exterior and a red interior. This car is a complete nut and bolt frame off restoration and we are using mostly NOS parts to put in back into showroom condition.
