Engines

We just love to make Triumph engines purr, whether it needs a minor tune-up or a major overhaul.  Unleaded gasoline conversions are something you should consider anytime the cylinder head is off, and if the crankshaft is out we'll recommend a rear seal conversion.  Want more power without sacrificing drive- ability?  Our 'Street Performance' rebuilds will have you grinning from ear to ear!  Learn more on our engine rebuild page.

Transmissions & Overdrives

Here's one component of your car that has had a hard life, and some were harder than others.  Even in the absence of outright abuse, your car's transmission has suffered from the effects of miles and time, when every stop is followed by a run through the gears!  We routinely overhaul TR gearboxes and overdrives here, and they work so well that you won't ever be tempted by one of those Japanese conversions!

Differentials

The rear end has taken every bit of power that your engine has produced over the years.  The numerous bearings and bushings inside can also rust while the car sits idle for years.  Many special tools and precision measuring equipment are required to overhaul a rear end, and it’s not something which can be accomplished by the average restorer.  We have the tools and experience to do this job correctly, each and every time!

Metal Repair

Auto sheet metal fabricators possess old world skills that are very uncommon today.  Whether you need one spot of rust repaired on one fender, or an entire body made as solid and straight as new, the results you'll get here are certain to exceed your expectations.  We perform all rust repair and metal work in our shop utilizing three (3) Auto Twirler rotisseries and professional fabrication equipment which allows us to repair and replace rusted metal faster and better than any typical body shop.  We believe in working the metal with hammers and dollies to minimize filler use, and rusted metal is always replaced with proper repair panels and fabricated patches which are completely welded in place and ground smooth for invisible repairs.  Door gaps and panel alignment always receive special attention to produce results that get noticed for quality.

Paint & Body 

Sadly, I am disappointed with the paint jobs that I see on most collector cars at the shows I attend.  You should be able to 'read' your t-shirt in the reflection of flawless paint, but mediocre jobs with blurred reflections are common today.  If you're building a car to drive, we will give you a paint finish that looks excellent without going to the "flawless" level where you'd be afraid to drive it!  Collector cars lead pampered lives, and if the body and paint work are done right (without short- cuts or amateur repairs), then there's no reason that the paint shouldn't still look good 25-30 years after it was done.  Our own paint shop uses premium materials and methods to give your Triumph a long lasting finish that stands out against most others, and one that you'll be proud of for years to come.

Interior & Trim 

Let's face it, it's no fun to drive a car with worn or ripped seats that have foam or springs showing through.  The interior of your car is the part that you have to look at when you're out for a drive.  You'll want your interior to look it's best, and my 40+ years of auto trim experience and inherent attention to detail is something that will make you proud.  We have performed exhaustive research on TR interiors, and know all of the details which are sure to impress even the toughest concours judge.  Having our own metal fabrication shop allows us to rebuild and repair even the rustiest of seat frames, something that is going to be well beyond the capabilities of most auto trim shops today (if you can even find one!).  
Macy’s Garage
America’s BEST Triumph Shop
SERVICES
Services Macy's Garage is a completely self-contained classic car repair and restoration facility with a singular focus on the Triumph TR2-TR6 Sports Cars.  ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that can be done to a Triumph, WE DO IT HERE.  There is nothing that you could need or want for your TR that we cannot do here, and we’ve already done it on hundreds of TR’s before yours!  Everything except chrome plating and engine machining is performed in-house so that we can control the quality and guarantee the results.  We have the knowledge, skill, experience, special tools and equipment, and most importantly the passion for doing it right.  We stand behind our work, and are happy to provide you with all the references you’’ll ever want.  We are proud to have earned Accreditation from the BBB, and we invite you to check us out with them as well.  And YES, we do routine service and partial repair of TR components and systems right along with our award winning complete frame-up restorations.  Choose Macy's Garage for all of your Triumph restorations and repairs, and save yourself time, dollars, and heartburn by having it done right the first time by the folks who know them BEST!  Just a few of our many Triumph centered specialties are listed below:

Forgotten Cars

We see a lot of Triumphs that were parked for one reason or another, and then "forgotten" for many years.  In most cases they don't need a full restoration to be driven and enjoyed, but returning them to 'driver' status is a big job that involves checking the safety items (suspension, steering, and brakes) and replacing all rubber hoses and all fluids at a minimum.  If it's time for your Triumph to return to the road after a long sleep, give us a call!

Routine Maintenance

Normal maintenance for an older car is not 'normal' anymore.  Even for something as simple an an oil change, you might be a little reluctant to trust the corner oil change place.  They won't have the oil filter, or know where to get one.  Chances are that they haven't seen a zerk fitting all week, and as for them finding all 23 on your '57 TriumphTR3?  Forget about it! 

Carburetors

The Team here have been repairing and rebuilding carburetors since the mid 1960's.  Today, when carburetors are rare and service 'technicians' need a computer to fix your car, it's important to find a shop like Macy's Garage that still knows the difference between the British SU’s and Zenith- Stromberg’s.  We rebuild all of our own carburetors here, both for cars in our shop and for carburetors sent to us via the UPS truck.

Brakes

Suspension

  Electrical

Starters that won't start, generators that refuse to generate, and lights that only work part-time.  All of these maladies and more can affect Triumphs and their infamous Lucas electrical systems, and we have the ability to make things right again.  Diagnosing and repairing older electrical systems  are extremely important skills today, as parts are no longer available at the local parts store and a ‘scan-tool’ can’t be used to point you to the problem.  While wiring issues or harness replacement frustrate most people, we say "Bring it on!".  We truly believe that most of the old Lucas horror stories were the result of poor maintenance and repair in the past, and all of our full restorations and complete electrical overhauls work without issue and put the Lucas myths to bed.  Maybe we know something that old Joe Lucas didn’t! 
Our primary goal with all TR’s that come to our shop is first and foremost to make them SAFE.  No one system on any vehicle is more critical in this regard than the brakes, so we never compromise with your safety by cutting corners when working on your brakes.  The Girling disc brakes on most of the TR’s we service and restore were pretty good back in their day, but this system was designed and introduced ‘way back’ in the 1950’s.  While the parts catalogs and internet discussion boards are full of modern day “upgrades” that you can make to your brakes, the fact of the matter is that nothing you do is going to make your old Triumph TR stop as well as a modern day Camry!  We’ll help you sort through all of the chatter, and make sure your old TR brakes will stop you as well as possible.
For safety’s sake, your car needs to go where you point it!  Suspension and steering are not only important to your safety, but affect your comfort as well.  Both are right at the top of our “no-compromise” list.  While 'older' cars like our Triumphs will never handle and stop like a modern car, proper maintenance and repair will assure that they will perform as they were designed to do when new. Just as with brakes, there is a confusing array of “upgrades” you could make to your suspension and steering, and we’re happy to help you find the right options for your car.  Note that we also rebuild steering boxes and rack & pinion units here in-house, and we receive several each month via UPS for repair.
