About Florida Rod Shop

We are truly The Premier One-Stop Hot Rod Shop doing everything in-house!


In 2014, Jim Schanstra started Florida Rod Shop due to his love for Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Resto-Rods & Exotics — and the need for a quality shop in the Tampa Bay area. Jim likes to say, “We have staffed our shop with highly skilled technicans that eat, breathe and live cars! We simply do the best work because we love what we do!

In the past 4 years we have grown into a full service facility offering complete ground up restorations, complete metal fabrication, full machine shop, full mechanical and electrical repairs, including stereos and power adders. We also offer complete custom upholstery and convertible tops. You are always welcome for a shop tour! Stop on by during business hours and see us in action.

Florida Rod Shop is located in Wesley Chapel Florida off of Old Pasco Road just south of route 52. Our Shop is a new 6,000 sq. ft., fully air conditioned facility with all of the best equipment. We cater to customers that demand the highest quality and security for their projects. Our Mission Statement speaks for itself.
