About Bayberry Vintage Autos
Bayberry Vintage Autos originated 25 years ago as a distinguished collection of pristine classic vehicles dating back to the year 1903. Our original mission was the sales and acquisition of supreme classic vehicles for our private reserve and for our clients, but we quickly evolved into a much greater operation.
We expanded our service options by offering OEM vehicle restorations. Some of our most noteworthy restorations include our 1969 Ferrari GTS, our 1963 Corvette Split-Window, and our 1942 Ford Super Deluxe Woody Wagon.
Today, we proudly specialize in custom automotive projects, restorations, and restomods. We also offer advice about buying and selling vehicles, as well as concierge services.
For more information, give us a call at 603-926-4265– We look forward to hearing from you!

Body Shop Manager
Matt manages our body shop and joined Bayberry Vintage Autos in November 2018. Matt is experienced in all aspects of automotive restoration including metal fabrication, repairing and reshaping body imperfections, multiple stage painting including custom hand painted accents, and assembly/fitment. He has seven years of body shop management experience along with four years of collision teaching experience. A true perfectionist, Matt’s first project was to complete the body work and paint our 1963 Corvette Split Window “fuelie”, a frame off restoration completed in 2020.
When Derek joined our team in September 2019, he recognized a unique opportunity to work on an amazing collection of cars and be a player in our custom project and restoration business. He brings a wide range of mechanical and body repair work experience to our team developed over the span of 17 years in the business. Although Derek is new to our world of vintage and custom automobiles, he embraces learning from both Jim and Matt.
History Behind our Building
The Hampton Car Barn- Our Place in Transportation History
Bayberry Vintage Autos’ headquarters is located inside the historic Hampton Car Barn. Built at the turn of the century, the brick complex once served as trolley house for the Exeter Street Railway Company. An electrical plant inside the building powered the cars via overhead lines that stretched out over the surrounding towns. The trolleys housed at the car barn ferried passengers around the seacoast and are often seen in historic postcard photos depicting early-1900s Hampton Beach. Though the streetcars and their rails have long since vanished from the landscape, the hull of this cavernous structure still stands as a testament to Hampton’s past.
