Our Story

"This is a wonderful family-owned business and like a previous review stated, 'The service is like stepping back into time.' The honesty, the friendliness of staff, the sincerity of Fred and Deanna, the way they go out of their way for you, the whole nine yards."


Daniele’s Classic Auto Body is owned and operated by Fred Daniele.  A trusted name in the auto collision industry for more than 40 years, Fred stands behind every repair that leaves his shop. He is committed to customer satisfaction; delivering the highest quality of repairs and workmanship is his number-one priority.

Fred Daniele got his start in the auto body industry in 1965. His dad owned a small body shop in Marin, and Fred started helping out on weekends and after school when he was a teenager. He acquired extensive training and experience through the years, and he purchased his first shop in 1973. An expert painter, Fred became known as one of the best in Marin County.

In 1990, Fred moved to Sonoma to work with his uncle at his body shop. He fell in love with Sonoma and the community and purchased the shop, renaming it Daniele’s Classic Auto Body. His daughter Deanna and son-in-law Tim joined the team soon after.  The Daniele's take great pride in their family business, ensuring the highest level of service and customer satisfaction.
