Rare Spares is proud to welcome its newest store to the Rare Spares network, Rare Spares Shepparton. Owned and managed by the locally based Wisely family, Stephanie, Jason and Geoff will be the faces of the new Rare Spares Shepparton and provide a much welcomed boost for classic car owners in Shepparton and surrounding regions. The Wisely family felt the opportunity to become a Rare Spares official distributor would be a perfect fit with their existing mechanical workshop, Wisely Automotive Services. Father and Son, Geoff and Jason have 50 years of combined experience working on vehicles of all makes and models, and their love affair with classic cars runs deep. “Geoff and Jason have just finished restoring two EH Holdens and also have some other classics out in the shed that are lined up for restoration, so their understanding of the classic parts world is strong,” said Stephanie Wisely. With an active car scene in Shepparton and surrounds, Stephanie was excited to learn word had already spread about the new store opening, a promising sign for the future. The new Rare Spares Shepparton distributorship features an impressive showroom displaying a range of Rare Spares parts at the front of the store and out the back the Wisely's workshop offers mechanical and car restoration services. “The beauty of having the Rare Spares store as well as a mechanical workshop is that we can be a ‘one stop’ shop for customers who are seeking to restore cars as well as install new parts, so it can be a double benefit. “As a Rare Spares Distributor, we will offer a wide range of parts to classic vehicle customers and if we don’t have a specific part, we will quickly and easily be able to order it in,” said Stephanie. To see the team at Rare Spares Shepparton, opening hours are Monday to Friday 7:30am – 5:00pm and Saturdays, 8:30am – 12:00pm. The store is located at 2 New Dookie Road, Shepparton, Vic, 3630 and can be phoned on (03) 5821 3598.
