Chuck Dabler grew up in an era with a love for cars, and collision repair. He graduated from OTI with degrees in auto body 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 Auto Body 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 auto body 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
