Eastwood has been serving the DIY Auto Enthusiast for over 35 years and is now in Chicago. Curt Strohacker founded Eastwood in 1978, after he had a difficult time finding the tools and supplies needed to restore his 1953 Austin-Healey. A Chicago-native and Northern Illinois University alumni, Curt grew up in Mt. Greenwood, just 2 miles from the new Eastwood Retail Store.

Unlike traditional retail stores, the new Eastwood store incorporates an experiential format, including hands-on usage and interactive training of products. The store features a true shop environment with project vehicles, educational classes and the opportunity to try products before purchase. Whether you are new to the Eastwood family or a longtime customer, Eastwood is committed to helping you “Do The Job Right”. Come visit us!

We’re conveniently located about 30 minutes south of downtown Chicago, less than 2 hours from Milwaukee and less than 3 hours from Indianapolis. Whether you live nearby, or are planning a trip to the area, why not make the drive to Eastwood? You'll be glad you did!
