Marti Auto Works, known for its vaunted Marti Reports, has now opened its Service Center Museum. Check out the official words after the jump…
El Mirage, Arizona- Marti Auto Works recently hosted the Grand Opening of the company’s new Service Center Museum and corporate offices. The unique museum totally replicates a Ford dealership’s Parts and Service Department of the 1960s with original Autolite, Philco-Ford products, signage, banners, parts and service books, catalogs and Rotunda service equipment. Also featured is a 1960’s Coke machine that like all the equipment showcased in the service center museum is in working order. Recently, Kevin and Shelli Marti greeted friends and visitors from all over the country with tours of the Service Center Museum and a festive luncheon.
Kevin Marti, Marti Auto Works President explained just how the service center museum came to fruition. “The idea for a Ford dealership service and part museum started when I was 17 and collected my first Ford banner. Through the years I have traveled the country collecting Philco-Ford, Rotunda, Autolite and FoMoCo products, parts, parts counters, equipment, signage, literature from the 1960-1970 time periods. During my travels across the country I stopped at countless Ford dealerships and was able find all kinds of material, even a Rotunda front end alignment machine with all the correct service equipment and accessories to align a vehicle. We are pleased and excited to see our dream come true and were happy to greet so many friends at our Grand Opening.” Kevin concluded.
The Marti Service Center Museum is part of a new home for Marti Auto Works that will eventually house all departments of the company.
Marti Auto Works has provided the finest quality restoration products that meet or exceed original design specifications at auto supply prices for over 30 years.
These include belts and hoses, stripe kits, spark plug wires and battery cables. In addition the company offers Marti Reports for 1967-1993 Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.
