About Us

Fountain Valley Bodyworks

has been a staple in the Orange County community for over four decades. Our famous smiley face is recognized all over Southern California, and can been seen from the 405 freeway, or even from planes flying into John Wayne airport. But the fifteen-foot smiley face on our building isn’t just for show. We want the residents of Orange County to know what we stand for: Incredible customer service and the highest quality auto body repairs.

Although we are a family owned body shop, Fountain Valley Bodyworks has grown into the biggest and highest rated auto body facility in Orange County. Our massive facility on Newhope Street and Euclid Street is home to five separate auto body divisions, which are equipped with the most innovative technology in the industry. All of these are located within a mile of Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, and Huntington Beach.

But unlike corporate chains, owner Dave March has lived in Orange County his entire life. His goal with Fountain Valley Bodyworks has always been to give his community and customers the best auto body experience imaginable. This philosophy has shown up in every aspect of our shop. Whether it’s the friendly team and staff he has assembled, or the new divisions he created to streamline the auto body repair process, Dave always strives to make the lives of his neighbors and customers better. If there is a way to improve the customer experience, Dave will do it, no matter the cost. From investing millions of dollars into equipment, to getting his staff trained in new carbon fiber and electric vehicle repairs, if it makes the customer experience better, Fountain Valley Bodyworks will always make the right decision.

Why Use Fountain Valley Bodyworks?

One of the most rewarding aspects of our business is witnessing the generations of customers that come into our doors. We are constantly hearing stories from our customers who tell us that their father and mother came here, as well as their grandparents and even great grandparents! These stories validate our decision to put the customer first. We rely on our customers to keep our legacy, and we will do whatever it takes to create the best auto body experience possible.

Another reason for our success has been our investment and commitment to having the best technicians. We search far and wide to make sure that anyone touching your car is highly trained, qualified and fits the standard of what a Fountain Valley Bodyworks technician should be. Our technicians are so good that they even helped Dave develop his dream of building the world’s fastest amphibious car--- A car that can go 60mph on the water, and 0-60 mph acceleration in 4.5 seconds. That's right, if our technicians can build a car that set a Guinness World Record, imagine what they can do with your car. In fact, even the US Military has contracted Fountain Valley Bodyworks as consultants to repair high tech and highly advanced military reconnaissance vehicles. That’s how skilled and in demand our technicians are!

Over the years, we have done everything in our power to make Fountain Valley Bodyworks the best bodyshop in Orange County. Time and time again, we are voted by the OC Register and OC Weekly readers as the best auto body shop in the area. Although the accolades are nice, our biggest reward is seeing our customers smile after getting their car back in perfect condition. We don't just want to meet customers expectations, we want to exceed them.

That’s the reason we use the smiley face as our mascot. We are here for the smiles. And since 1974, we've produced over a half a million of them. We want to thank the community for their continual loyalty and support over the years. Without you, none of this would be possible.

Thank you for making us your bodyshop since 1974.
