For the past 37 years, we have built hot rods and custom cars. Many of our projects have been in national magazines and have won more awards than we can count. We also build for the more practical customer, that wants to drive them. Our tag line has always been- "if you can dream it, we can build it".
Our speciality is customizing to your specifications. It's your car- we build it the way YOU want it.
Dave's Hot Rod Shop, originally owned by Dave Tallant and now owned by Robin Marsh, has been building, fabricating and customizing cars and trucks since 1974. Our shop is in Smithville, Missouri only 10 minutes north of Kansas City.
We have played a part in creating many award winning cars and custom paint jobs. See our Services page for additional information on what we can do for you.
Check out the cool rods on our photo pages. If we have built you a car over the years, please send some photos and we will display them on our site. Thanks for stopping by!
The pride we put in our work will show on your car!
