They have done work on several of my and friends cars. They never do unnecessary repairs. THEY ALWAYS get the job done at a fair price. Quality is always less costly in the long run. You get what you pay for. They don't use cheapo materials or parts. They stand behind their work. Nothing is 100%, I had to bring back my 66 Ford after they upgraded it to disc brakes, I didn't like the way it braked & they agreed it should of been better. Not their fault they used the parts that were recommended, the manufacturer exchanged the boosters. They did the swap at no charge. I will always recommend this shop.
I was in the initial stage of having my 1960 Bel Air restored at another shop. In order to move things along, I brought my radiator to Bill's shop to have it recored. That's when I discovered that Cap-A-Radiator did full blown restorations. I immediately decided to have my car trailered to Bill's shop. The shop performed a huge list of tasks: an engine replacement, with all of necessary additional work; installation of a Vintage A/C system; front end work; transmission replacement; installation of a dual exhaust system; upgrades to the steering including the installation of power boost for the steering; replacement of instrument gauges. The list goes on. We ran into a problem with the alignment. Bill and his staff persisted until the problem was solved. A hearty endorsement from me.
I just called this shop and talked to an extremely nice guy. He explained all that would have to be done to the radiator for repair. After explaining I had a factory warranty, he told me told me it would be cheaper for me to pay the shipping fees back to the factory rather than have it serviced by them. That is honesty you do not get from repair shops these days. I will do business with this shop in the future!!!
I have three collector or classic cars. Bill and his crew have worked on all three. I found the shop to be very honest and reliable. These cars are not the easiest to find parts for and Bill went out of his way to search for some very obscure pieces. When a part just didn't exist, Bill would discuss alternate solutions with you.
This place is great! I have a 1983 honda magna 750. The gas tank was rusted on the inside. Not only did they clean it out but they coated it with liner as well. And all for a readonable price. Def recommend this place to everyone.

Want to take a moment to say Thank You to Bill at Cap-A Radiator for all the effort and excellent job completely re-doing my radiator on my 1979 L82 Corvette. The car was sent to ZIP's Corvette in Richmond VA for some work (1 item being, the Original radiator was leaking) ZIP's informed me, that they "do not have the same radiator to replace it. However, can replace it with an Aluminum one Made in China" NOPE ! I do not live on Long Island anymore. However, know of Cap A Radiator. I contacted Bill via phone and No Problem. He took control and had ZIP's Ship the Old radiator to him. He Re-cored, rebuilt and made it brand new again. Then, shipped it back to ZIP's. It looks beautiful and I am so happy in knowing that the car is still kept as original as possible. Extremely Honest, Informative and reputable throughout the whole process. He sent me very informative reads on the complexities of the radiator and the choices I needed to make in rebuilding it. Bill spent time on the phone with me explaining the items in detail and why each is there and why my choices in the process mattered. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Great company that still knows how to do this kind of work.
Thank you to Bill and the crew at Cap-A-Radiator. I brought my 69 Skylark in for a number of issues, including a/c overhaul, radiator and timing chain cover leak. I was planning a long trip in my 50 year old car and wanted to make sure I arrived and returned safely. Cap-A-Radiator did a thorough assessment of the condition of my car. They did a great job for a fair price and found a few other issues that needed to be addressed. I liked the fact that before doing any work Bill had me stop by the shop, showed me the problems and discussed various alternatives for addressing the problems. I feel comfortable recommending Bill and Cap-A-Radiator for work on you classic car, including A/C, Radiator, and General Mechanical issues.
Brought my 1969 Chevelle SS to Cap A Radiator to have Vintage A/C, New dashboard and cooling system installed. Excellent workmanship on everything and never had to return to "fix' any errors. Very professional the way they do things and always kept me informed of the progress. Highly recommended.
This is the second time I have brought a vehicle to Cap A Radiator and it is the second time I have been extremely happy with the results. The first time they installed the original factory air conditioning in my 1964 Ford Galaxie and did an outstanding job. Just last week they installed power steering in my 1967 Ford F100 pickup. The job was an adventure since the kit that is sold for the conversion did not fit as it was supposed to. Many custom modifications were needed that required a lot of time and engineering. The job is perfect and I can finally enjoy driving it. (and so can my daughter) Many thanks to Bill and his team.
