Ayre Ford F-250

What’s New at Integrity Automotive?

Today Integrity Automotive wanted to feature a truck owned by another great local car shop, Ayres Muffler, Brake and Alignment. This is Rob Ayres grandfather's truck, a 1969 Ford F-250 Camper Special, and he has a very important decision to make that is often very difficult for a lot of classic car owners.

To replace or rebuild…

This Ford F-250 still has the original engine in it, but it needs quite a bit of work. Rob could choose to save some time and money by simply replacing his engine with a re manufactured one or invest a bit more and have the original engine completely rebuilt.

Why would anyone not go the quicker and cheaper route?

Three reasons, the first is authenticity. For a lot of classic car owners their goal is not to just have a beautiful car on the outside, but to have it be the same car as when it was purchased so many years ago. That means all the serial numbers match.

The second, resale value! So many classic car enthusiasts value a completely original factory car. If Rob ever decides to sell his truck, he would get more for it with the original factory engine still inside. I’m sure most of you have seen the astronomical numbers people pay for numbers matching, all original classic cars on Barrett Jackson or Mecums.

Lastly, precision. Yes, re-manufactured engines are supposedly inspected and set to the same specifications as original but the places that build them are more about quantity vice quality. Their tolerances for certain things may be more in some areas than they should be. We deal with local machine shops that have years of experience in machine work and each engine is hand built by one of us personally.

In this case Rob chose to replace, but every customer needs to make their own decision.

At Integrity Automotive our goal is to honestly inform our customers of their options and let them choose what is best for their car and their pocket book. At Integrity Automotive we pride ourselves on being upfront with our pricing with no hidden costs and whenever possible give the customer multiple options to fit their needs and price range. Integrity Automotive’s goal has always been to help people make their car better and more reliable. If you have a classic hidden away somewhere and have always dreamed of getting it ready to cruise Hot August Night, maybe roll across the blocks at Pebble Beach or even just be able to drive safely again, give us a call; and we can work with you to make your dream a reality.
