Sledge Customs was started in 2011 by Kevan Sledge. Kevan has had a passion for cars since he was a young kid. In the late 80’s he started building hot rods and customs as a hobby before finally building them full time as a profession.
Sledge Customs is dedicated to building the best possible cars while keeping them completely period perfect and true to the early custom car style of the 1940’s and early 1950’s. Our specialty is 1939-40 Mercury’s but we also build early Cadillac’s, Fords, Chevys, and whatever else peaks our interest. Most cars we work on already have a beautiful factory design so we just improve upon some of the lines where needed without destroying the integrity of the original design.
We can do just about anything at the shop but our specialty is primarily the metal work. We do traditional gas welding, metal finishing, and lead work. All cars are completely metal finished before going to paint so not much filler if any is needed.
Every car we build is extremely important to us and when the journey is over the owners are not just customers, but become life long friends. That’s because we work closely with our customers to build exactly what they want, and in the end we all have a hand in the design.
Sledge Customs is dedicated to tradition and good design.
