Family Tradition – Customer Service – Passion – Hard Work

August 1982 Dale Long opened shop on South Burr Street not much more than 4 blocks from where “Dale’s A-1 Transmission Service” is located today. His passion for quality repairs, customer service, and speed, can be found in his sons who keep their father’s memory alive and well.


Dale’s A-1 can service almost all late makes and models. What’s more, is “Old School” is still very much alive here at Dale’s. it’s not uncommon to see a classic GM or FORD in the shop getting the Cruise-O-Matic or PowerGlide rebuilt!


When the Dale’s team isn’t fixing customer vehicles, you can catch many of us building and racing some of the fastest drag cars and coolest classics around. We are mechanics, enthusiasts, racers, fathers, mothers, friends and family.

“Our RV broke down on the way to MT Rushmore. We were 25 miles from Murdo, SD and 1200 miles from home. Dale’s A1 fixed our transmission quickly and reasonably. We only lost a few hours of vacation. Thanks!!!”
