Phoenix Stang Shop

Hey Everyone,
I have had 3 Stangs over the years. I am coming into possession, again, of our family's '68 Stang. I recently sold my '93 Vibrant GT after 15years. I need suggestions of a shop in Phoenix that is not Performance Solutions or AMP Performance for an overhaul of my '68. I like AMP, no issues, just looking for a classic love shop. I want to do an easy 5.0L pushrod crate swap plus a T5 conversion. Also, can someone suggest an A/C install shop as this will be crusin' Phoenix in 115įF summers!

Go check out Auto Crafters in Tempe. https://www.azautocrafters.com/

The owner Greg is a good guy. It's a full-service repair shop, and a body shop. He has a 427 Cobra he used to race, and a 66 GTO in his lobby, both immaculate. Tour the shop and you'll likely see another Cobra or two, an old Porsche, an old Mustang, an old El Camino, a car or two getting detailed, and a variety of more modern cars on the lifts and bays getting run of them mill work.

I know him because our boys were both involved in Boy Scouts, and I took my '92 there last summer for an A/C problem I couldn't fix. I was afraid it was the evap core but I lacked the equipment to properly test it to be sure. They found out my compressor was leaking. They quoted me a repair ($$$) but let me take the car back and fix it myself, and bring it back to them for a real vacuum and recharge, without even paying the bill first. Except the new compressor I installed had a bad manifold and wouldn't hold a vacuum either. I took it back again on an open tab, swapped the compressor one more time, took it back to them, they vac'd and charged it, works like a charm ever since. Total cost: About $150. Would recommend.
