Classic Car Dealer Overview
Maple Motors has been a family owned and operated business for over 28 years specializing in buying and selling unique vehicles. There are three brothers Jim, Jason, and Jeff working proudly beside their father, James Fite Sr., better known as "Pops". Pat, and Nick are also a big part of the Maple Motors team. All of us enjoy working together and make it fun to come to work everyday. We all have a passion for muscle cars and are happy to make them a part of our everyday life. Our business has remained in the same modest middle Tennessee location and we are proud to be one of the small fish in this big, booming pond of classic cars. We want to keep the "mom and pop shop" southern style atmosphere and have no desire to become a big business giant. We are down to earth people and keep a laid back attitude when conducting business. We strive on honesty and thank God everyday for our blessed family and business. Maple Motors has a wide selection of specialty vehicles, but we try to focus on muscle cars from the 60's and 70's. We stock domestic muscle cars from all years, but we like anything that is different or "pushes our buttons". We only buy cars that we have a personal appreciation for. One thing we strive to do is sell vehicles that are affordable to the average working American and that someone doesn't have to mortgage their house to purchase. You won't find "trailer queens" or 10 point show cars here, but rather a good, clean, driver quality car that has potential to be made into more if desired in the future. We don't try to have the most expensive toys on the block, we just want to be reasonable and realistic in this expensive market of classic vehicles. We rarely purchase our vehicles from auctions or other dealers, we buy directly from the public for the most part. About 90% of our vehicles come from local individuals or private collections. Unlike a lot of classic car dealers we do not consign cars for individuals and we own all of our inventory. James Fite Sr. has been passionate about muscle cars his entire life. He has forgot more than most will ever know about these beautiful vehicles. From drag racing to new car sales he has had a lifetime of experience and believes in the "old school" way of doing business with a hand shake. He has been in the car business for over 40 years in the Nashville area alone. He purchased Maple Motors in 1983 with the hopes of making it the family business for him and his sons that it has become today. Pops is the backbone of the family business and is glad to see his three sons follow in his footsteps. Pops and his sons have a very close relationship and are proud to be the best of friends. Maple Motors is located at 829 West Main Street, in beautiful Hendersonville, Tennessee. We are only 20 minutes from Music City USA in Nashville, TN where many of our clients and stars are discovered. We also have a big selection of new and used wheels along with various performance and aftermarket parts.
