Auto Service & Auto Repair in Glastonbury     •     860-633-3669

Welcome to Shifting Gears Vintage Auto Repair. Riley & Scranton Service Center in Glastonbury Ct has become Shifting Gears Vintage Auto Repair! The change to a full time classic and special interest auto repair shop reflects our earliest interest in cars and moves us into a new phase of operations. Our corporation began as “Pike & Riley’s Flying A” in 1965. Changed to “Riley & Scranton’s Flying A” in 1969, then “Riley and Scranton Service Center” in 1974. Earl became involved in 1986 when his father in law Dick Riley bought out his partner, buying the business himself in 2002. While not aspiring to be a full restoration shop, we are able to facilitate completion of stalled projects, in house mechanical and unit repair, along with light fabrication, welding, electrical and accessory repair and installation. Our strong liaisons with local body/paint, upholstery and glass professionals round out our ability to provide assistance on many levels. We can assist with purchase and sales of vintage vehicles as well as help with transportation arrangements.
