About the East St. Louis location

“Experience matters—Shelby’s Auto Repair is three generations strong, bringing a legacy of expertise and family tradition to every service. Established in 1964 by Shelby Jr.’s grandfather in East St. Louis, Shelby’s Auto Repair has a legacy of excellence. In 1990, Shelby Sr. took over operations. His father owned the shop until January 2014, when Shelby Jr. and his wife, Rachel, acquired it. For over 50 years, we have been providing honest and reliable auto repair services.”

About the Waterloo location

Our Waterloo location opened in August 2013 at the former Liefer’s Garage location. Shelby and Rachel purchased the shop from longtime mechanic and businessman Ervin Liefer and his daughter Candy. Fortunately, Candy is still working at the Waterloo location. Continuing the Liefer legacy, we take pride in delivering reliable service at competitive, fair prices, ensuring exceptional customer care.
