Bertolucci Body & Fender Shop is a body and paint shop in Sacramento, California. The shop was opened up by Dick Bertolucci in 1948. It was initially located at his fathers garage, but he later moved it to a new garage at 1749 34th Street in Sacramento.


When Harry Westergard died in 1956, he had worked for Dick for six months.


In the late 1950s Dick switched his energies to conventional body, fender and collision work instead of custom work. In 2010 Bertolucci's Body & Fender Shop was still around today, by then the shop was a collision repair facility.


3rd of July 2009, the shop was heavily damaged by a fire.
