About Us

Midwest Classics on 66 has been a 10 year dream of Mike Bell & Jeff Hubrich. We finally got the opportunity to purchase the old Ben Franklin building right on Route 66 in the heart of the Midwest. Our dream was to have a modern facility to show or passion to the Wilmington locals and the many tourist from around the world traveling old Route 66.


Midwest Classics on 66 also buys and sells Classic & Muscle cars of all branches and we encourage others to enjoy their passion. We also help newcomers to the car scene reach their dream of owning a Classic or Muscle car of their own.


Jeff and Mike have been Working on, Restoring, Buying and Selling classic cars and bikes for the last 34 years our knowledge and experience will ensure you get what you paying for and that you don’t end up with a money pit or a car requiring total restoration, we hear every week from people how they or their mate got misled on an Internet purchase or thought they were buying a one owner only driven on Sundays vehicle.


Jeff is a long time resident of the Wilmington & Joliet area and his local knowledge is extensive. Mike is from across the pond in Perth Western Australia and we have both seen the pitfalls of buying over the phone or Internet, we know all too well the disappointment of your dream car arriving and not resembling what you were told or how it looked in the photos you got sent.


Mike has been importing cars into Perth Australia for the last 8 years and understands that the simple repair or replacement parts can be found easily at the local US auto parts store, however when your car arrives after 2 months / 20,000kms of shipping and items don’t work or are missing this can lead to stressful Internet searches, costly shipping costs and delays licensing in your home country.
