  • Description:
  • The oldest family-owned auto body shop west of the Mississippi River. We’re extremely proud of our history and our longstanding commitment to our Bay Area community, and we invite you to stop by our shop to learn more. In 1877, George V. Arth settled in Oakland, California after making the long ocean journey across the Atlantic. He had arrived with his family from the region of Alsace-Lorraine, France. A blacksmith by trade, George set up shop in the East Bay when he purchased a small local business named the Oakland Carriage Manufactory, which he later renamed to George V. Arth & Son. The business made a good living by repairing and painting horse-drawn buggies, but as Mr. Henry Ford’s “horseless carriages” began appearing on the local Oakland streets, George V. Arth & Son adapted to the new technology and began repairing and painting the new motorized vehicles.
