 Arizona EXTREME Motorsports
would like to welcome
Gearhead Auto to our pages. While primarily a transmission repair facility, owner Leo Held can offer just about anything your car or truck needs. Transmissions, both automatic and manual shift, are his specialty, having been involved in that business for over 38 years. Leo’s father, Harold, was also
into transmissions, and that’s where Leo got his start.
In addition to transmissions, Gearhead Auto does air conditioning, brakes, fuel injection and carburetors - the latter a rarity in today’s automotive world! Another interesting sideline for them is Volkswagens, Leo has a very fast turbocharged sand car - when it pulls
to the line at the bottom of the sand hills, a lot of the competition simply
melts away! He also works on the exotic Mendeola trans axles for his off-road customers.
Free vehicle towing is offered when a customer has Leo fix their transmission, and with a vehicle lift and every possible tool needed to complete any job, Gearhead Auto just possibly could be your one-stop repair station. They’re located at 8789 N. 75th Avenue in Peoria, on the right side of 75th just
before Grand Avenue. At this point in time, they’re kind of hard to spot, as recent winds took down his sign, but a new one is on the way. Hours are 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday, and Saturday by appointment. Give him a call at 623-824-8248 and tell him that Arizona EXTREME Motorsports sent you! v
