Richard Mullin’s passion for automobiles began at an early age working alongside his father, a mechanical engineer, in the family garage restoring antique cars and trucks.
After graduating from high school he attended Michigan Technological University for Automotive Engineering and received his degree from State University of New York in 1975 in Automotive Technology.
Committed to his career path, Richard continued his education from practical coaching by some of the most talented fabricators in the business to factory training with Daimler Benz in New York City, the Audi Factory in Germany, and the Ferrari and Lamborghini factories in Italy. He also received additional training and certifications from Ferrari of North America and Audi of North America. Richard served as an adviser to Ferrari of North America and I-Car. Supplemental education for the Power Hammer was continued with Fay Butler .
Currently, he sits on the advisory board for Automotive Training Center. After 35 years as a working manager in the exotic car industry, Richard had the opportunity to begin his own business. Today he applies his 40 years of expertise to a variety of vintage automobiles including:
- Aston Martin
- MG and Morgan
Over the years he has produced show car winners at Pebble Beach, AACA Junior, Senior, Preservation, Governor’s Cup, Amelia Island, Cavallino Classics, RROC Nationals, New Hope and Radnor Hunt Concourse. It has been his attention to detail, authenticity, and commitment to restoring vehicles in a traditional manner which has brought him much recognition and appreciation from customers and personal satisfaction from his work.
Under the tutelage of Richard Mullin, employees of Richard Mullin Coachbuilding are very talented apprentices learning the unique methods of fabrication and perfecting skills with equipment rarely found in other body shops. Richard remains fully committed to education and the continuation of traditional skills, which are quickly receding in the automotive repair and fabrication industry.
Recently, Richard Mullin Coachbuilding has moved to a brand new facility in Downingtown PA which overs the same great service and attention to detail but in a larger and more convenient space.
