Boyertown, PA – The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is housed in the former Boyertown Auto Body Works factory building, where truck bodies were manufactured for nearly 70 years. Visitors to the museum galleries walk in the footsteps of the dedicated works who built many of the trucks on display. It is surely a unique experience for all who come.

In an effort to honor those many workers who built those magnificent trucks, the Boyertown Museum will hold a reunion of former Boyertown Auto Body Works employees in the spring of 2018. The Museum is currently collecting names and contact information of former employees. If you or someone you know worked at the Boyertown Auto Body Works, please contact the Museum either by calling 610-367-2090 or sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

When a date for the reunion is chosen reminders will be mailed or emailed to any former Body Works employees the Museum has on record.

On display in the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is a selection of trucks built by the Body Works ranging in years from 1932 to 1976. Also on display are several photographs and signs from the Body Works, as well as other assorted memorabilia from the factory’s heyday. The Boyertown Museum owes much to the legacy and contributions of the Body Works employees who created history right here in Boyertown.

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is open seven days a week from 9:30 am -4:00 pm and is closed on major holidays.
