50th Anniversary!

Fred Drake Automotive, formerly Drake's Body Shop and Fred Drake Salvage was founded by Fred Drake, Sr. of Newark, DE. The body shop was located in Wilmington and specialized in large trucks and fleet services. In 1987, he and his son Fred Drake, Jr. opened Fred Drake Salvage in Middletown, DE. After one year in business, they moved to our current address where we have evolved into a multi-faceted auto repair and auto recycling facility.

2 year/24,000 mile warranty

We offer an unbeatable 2 year/24,000 mile warranty on mechanical repairs, and a lifetime guarantee for all collision repair.

Trust is Key

At Fred Drake Automotive, we have over 40 years experience in the collision industry. Our goal is to make the repair process as simple and smooth as possible for our customers, while providing quality that can't be beat. Free Towing.
