Director Gary O’Brien is a true motoring enthusiast. Opening the doors to Panels and Performance in 1979, as the business grew, a rename to Bendigo Accident Repair Centre was completed in order to create the opportunity to separate commercial and restoration and allow for further growth in both specialist areas.

Bendigo Retro Muscle Cars started its official life in the Panels and Performance years as a workshop specialising in classic car body repairs, and has seen a brand reinvention in order to have stronger communication with the enthusiast, classic and muscle car markets, while showcasing their respected premium restoration, panel and paint workmanship.

Focusing on classic and muscle car restoration, premium paint and panel work, rust repairs, metal fabrication, parts and assembly, classic race car build and maintenance, custom roll cages, and taking on unique automotive projects that others may shy away from, Bendigo Retro Muscle Cars is the place to go when looking for only the best workmanship and people to bring your toy shed project to life, restore an old friend, or repair a classic cruiser.
