Complete Service to get you back on the road

James Body Shop is a auto repair business founded in 1960. James Bolton started his business with a humble Body Shop located at 1101 Ewin in Oak Cliff. From day one, superior customer service separated James Body Shop from competitors. James (in picture buffing car) knew that this would be the most important quality and instilled this same mindset in his son Jeff (in picture with blue shorts). Soon after opening the auto body shop, James relocated the business to Midlothian, Texas. James’ Body Shop continues to be located in Midlothian, Texas. The business was handed to his son, Jeff, in 1986.
