Heritage Automotive Restorations Ltd. 
Builders of award winning antiques, rods & customs for 44 years.
Frank J. Blefari Jr., the owner, has been repairing and rebuilding cars since high school. 
A true car enthusiast; his interest runs the gamut from antiques to street rods.

After a one year search to find the perfect location, an old lodge in Pawling, New York was converted for restoration work.
Expansion came later with two more buildings which have the feel of early style gas stations. 
These buildings housed a full service mechanical shop, welding and fabrication area, paint room, and year round climate-controlled collector car storage.

Along side the restoration work, Frank built his first shop project, a 1932 Hiboy with a flathead. 
By today's standards a true nostalgia piece. 
The next project was a 1933 Chevy 4-door sedan street rod.

Our former shop rod, pictured on our business card, started life as a 1931 Ford Tudor sedan. 
With some extensive customizing it was reborn as a '31 Sedan Delivery
This car won the Eastwood Trophy at York in 1996.

A few years ago we built an award-winning 1936 Dodge 4-door convertible. 
Only 10 are know to be in existence and this is the first one that is modified.
This semi-smooth Dodge was debuted with some unique features that we designed.
Frank is still winning trophies with this car.

The most recent award-winning project is a 1932 Ford Roadster powered by a Buick Nailhead.
Winner of the 'Mesh New England' award at the 2017 Klingberg Antique Auto Festival, this car went on to be featured in the 2017 Late Summer issue of Mesh New England magazine as well as being on their website
This car turns heads every time the rubber meets the road!

Our cars, both restored antiques and rods, are out there with a host of awards and trophies associated with them.
We've worked for notables in the television, film and music industries 
as well as one former Vice President.

You've seen our work at Hershey in the fall and York in the summer; or perhaps you saw our commercial on one of your local cable stations.

The industry is always changing and we're happy to have been a part of it for the past 44 years!
