In the Rearview

This beautiful 1941 Chevrolet woody wagon was spotted in Perkasie this week. After full engine rebuild it was out for summer "break in" miles. We are pleased to report the engine is doing fine and after a couple open items to be repaired this will be a great driver for the summer!

Tech Tip

Rusty Buckets

by Pollock Auto Restoration Shop Foreman, Ross Belovich

When rebuilding seats, often the originals will show corrosion even when kept in the best environments. The factory rarely was concerned with longevity and simply covered bare steel. The team here at Pollock will remove the rust on these parts and use proper modern coatings to protect your investment for the long term.

The Elegance at Hershey

June 12th - 14th


Pollock Auto Restoration is once again looking forward to sponsoring the "Elegance at Hershey". This has quickly become one of the best Concours in the country. The cars are hand picked, very rare, sometimes one of a kind! This year, the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 driven by James Bond in the movie Goldfinger will make a rare appearance. I for one, will be shaken and stirred!

Maybe it's time to take care of those maintenance, restoration, preservation, and upgrade needs on your car's wish list. Click here to send an e-mail to inquiry@pollockauto.com or call us at 610-323-7108 to schedule an appointment now.
