Since 1986 we have built some of the finest street rods, customs, classics, muscle cars, and special interest vehicles in the Dallas and Ft. Worth (DFW) areas. We also build the newest trend of performance vehicles from pro-street to pro-touring rides designed for autocross racing. We service all of North and East Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and have built specialty cars for customers as far away as California and Florida! Jack Ellison has been building custom cars professionally since 1986 and in 1994 relocated the family and business to the quiet country community of Kaufman and incorporated as North Texas Rod and Custom. Now Jack, along with his wife, Christie, and their son and daughter, Jon and Jenni, and a few select employees, offer complete turn key "Dream Rides" built totally in house. And yes, we do partial builds as well. We live by our motto "You dream it and We'll build it". Let us build your next custom car or truck, the way you want it built, and built right the 1st time!

LAST COMPLETED 'DREAM RIDES'
Just completed in time for Christmas is Joey Watts' 1951 Mercury sedan. This is one "BAD" cruiser with Fatman IFS, Moser 9" rear on triangulated 4 link, 525 horse LS3 with 4L70E overdrive, full custom treatment to body with peaked and shaved hood, fully shaved and smoothed body shell, and a full on custom leather interior with all the latest in creature comforts inside. The first thing Joey did when we delivered his new "Dream Ride", named "The Babymaker", was to load 3 of his buddies into her and do a burn out all the way down his road! Honest!
Also just completed is Jonathan Drabek's 1969 Pro Touring Camaro featuring a 468 BBC with Fast direct port fuel injection, Tremic TKO 600 5 speed, Fatman stage III IFS, Moser 9 inch rear with Ride Tech triangulated 4 link, Wilwood big 13 1/2 inch discs with 6 piston calipers, complete custom leather interior utilizing Dakota Digital VHX series gauges, Ididit tilt column with Billet Specialties 'Boost' steering wheel, Classic Auto A/C, Clayton Machine pedals and door handles, and custom door panels from Fesler with carbon fiber inserts and dual speakers. We lowered the car 2 ½ inches, built a custom splitter/spoiler, and set the whole ride up on a set of Billet Specialties 'Boost' rims with Nitto Invo rubber.
Jonathan is set to tear up both the highways and the road courses in Florida, as he plans on a real "Show N Go" for this beauty.
From mild to wild, we create show quality custom auto paint jobs using PPG, Dupont, and House of Color. Many hours of careful attention are paid to each step of the process, from bare metal, through epoxy primer, filler work, sanding primer, and sealer, to base coat, clear coat, and finally color sanding and polishing.
Our show quality paint jobs speak for themselves, as do the many trophies our customer's cars have won.
Special effects and graphic designs including flames, two tones, and pearls are available.

Rear ends from GM 10 and 12 bolt, Ford 8 and 9 in., Dana 60, Corvette, Heights and Kugel customs. Posi trac, limited slip, or a spool will complete the package giving you the ride quality and performance you want.

Painless Performance, American Rewire, and Ron Francis. We also make our own systems in-house for all cars and trucks, as well as drag cars utilizing throttle stops and delay boxes.
Custom gauges from Dakota Digital, Auto Meter, Classis, Dolphine, Stewart Warner, and many more.
