Vintage Auto Garage started over 15 years ago, offering single voltage regulator/reducer to power original oil, gas, and temperature gauges when converting classic cars and trucks from 6 volt to 12 volts. Since then, Vintage Auto Garage has developed complete 6 volt to 12 volt conversion kits for almost every American classic make and model.
Our kits have been shipped to every continent in the world, used by every antique auto that was built with the original 6 volt positive or negative ground electrical systems. You can find all of our kits by year, make, and model below, and if for any reason you do not find one of the kits on our site, we likely still have the conversion parts available and are likely in the process of adding it to the site in the future.
If you have a project, large or small, that requires converting from 6 to 12 volts, and you cannot find your vehicle in our inventory, click on submit your project and one of our team members will send you a complete list of vintage auto parts for your specific classic auto.

Prior to 1955 most all American cars and trucks came with a 6 volt electrical system. 6 volts worked fine when these vehicles were new and the cars and trucks were driven daily to keep the battery charged. Today classic cars and trucks are not driven as often and the 6 volt batteries are never fully charged, therefore the engines may not start when hot or cold. All vehicle accessories today are made for 12 volt negative ground electrical systems, a vehicle with 6 volt system will not allow the use of any 12 volt device and it is difficult to get a jump start when the old 6 volt battery goes dead.
In most cases choosing 12 volt kits from Vintage Auto Garage will make the project go much quicker and simpler. All the parts needed for the make and model vehicle are in the kits plus a great set of instructions that will take the hobbest or professional mechanic step by step through the 12 volt conversion process.
In addition to the step by step instruction book, Vintage Auto Garage does offer phone support.
