Founded in 1979 by owners Dan and Terri Kreucher, Shelby Trim has grown into one of the largest automotive soft trim shops in the Midwest, offering concours quality workmanship at a reasonable price.
Dan had an early start in the automotive world, getting his first car at the age of fourteen, and acquiring and reconditioning several other vehicles prior to reaching driving age. “I would get them running and race them around our family asparagus patch,” recalls Kreucher, “I learned to pull a good hole shot in the sand, and my older brother-in-law could not beat me, even though he had a V8 and I only had a six-cylinder.” Dan went on to work as an automotive and motorcycle mechanic in his late teens, eventually taking a position as a sewing machine operator, and then sewing machine mechanic at Ford Motor Company, prior to starting Shelby Trim.
Shelby Trim serves the general public and corporate accounts, including new car sublet warranty repairs, and has outfitted numerous show vehicles for GM, Ford, Chrysler and Volkswagen. Examples of this work can be found at the Walter Chrysler museum, General Motors Heritage Center, and at GM headquarters in the Renaissance Center, and perhaps the car you’re driving. We perform all aspects of soft trim, from repairs on everyday driven vehicles, to complete interior restorations – both stock and custom. Nobody in the entire Midwest replaces and services more convertible tops than Shelby Trim.
