New muscle car and custom motorcycle business opens in Central Florida
The strength and high performance of the classic American-made muscle cars of the late 60s and early 70s – the Hemi Cuda, Mustangs, Camaros, the Firebird, Mopars – this is the passion of Muscle Cars & Handle Bars. Recently opened in the Orlando area, the business is already one of the country’s top full-service sales and restoration companies — dedicated to producing the highest quality restorations at the best possible price and delivery. In addition, Muscle Cars & Handle Bars was recently named the Central Florida dealer for the very exclusive Swift Motorcycles. The company unveiled its new showroom and garage facility in November 2006.
The Muscle Cars & Handle Bars facility offers a complete range of services not only for the collector/aficionado, but anyone that is a lover of finely crafted vehicles. Its mechanics and restoration staff are some of the best in the area and they are surrounded by a custom designed garage exclusively outfitted by the nationally acclaimed Garage Equipment Supply of California. The company’s showroom features a comprehensive display of classic muscle cars and motorcycles. One of the highlights includes legendary Beach Boy Al Jardine’s 1971 Hemi Cuda “Rhonda” (which the company restored) and a matching custom-designed motorcycle from the designers of Swift Motorcycles.
Dominant on the country’s West Coast, Swift Motorcycles is known for its high quality standards stemming from its experienced team of craftsmen, 2” chassis, in-house state-of–the-art paint facilities and a 3 year unlimited mile warranty. Swift’s models include a chopper, pro-street, cruiser and bobber. Muscle Cars & Handle Bars works directly with the Swift designers and manufacturers and are able to provide clients with custom-made, one-of-a-kind dream machines.
In addition, Muscle Cars & Handle Bars has also introduced a complete range of signature car care products for its clientele. Crafted specifically for those that are dedicated to detailing their vehicles to highly discriminating standards, the products include: a super concentrated butyl-based cleaner; a dressing for vinyl and leather; a wash-n-wax; and a waterless car wash.
