Chuck Dabler grew up in an era with a love for cars, and graduated from OTI with degrees in autobody repair and business. In 1967, he started a Volkswagen dealer shop on Lancaster Drive, with the help of the Eyerly family. Rapid growth from the Volkswagen-Porsche-Audi shop necessitated the need to build a state of the art, over 8,000 square foot facility. In 1977, he moved to this current location and Chuck Dabler Autobody became the family-owned business it is today!
An additional 8,000 square feet was added later, making us one of the largest independently owned autobody facilities in the Salem area. Our reputation of using skilled craftsmen and quality materials has generated word of mouth and return customer satisfaction, and has been our primary advertising medium for many years
