The Hot Rod Dream That Never Ended
The year was 1973 and two friends were building a pair of ’34 Ford three-window coupes. The finished cars made the cover of Rod & Custom magazine in 1974. What was to follow made hot rod history. The two cars — “The California Kid” and “Jake’s Coupe” — have totalled up almost 250,000 miles through the years. As rolling laboratories for our product line, they reside on our showroom floor for visitors to see and enjoy. From the friendship forged among the blood, sweat and welds of these two rides was born Pete and Jake’s Hot Rod Repair, which later became Pete & Jake’s Hot Rod Parts. Opening its doors in 1974, Pete and Jake’s has continued its long-standing reputation for building quality hot rod suspension components. Components designed not only to be admired but used.
The front ends and rear end assemblies are now a standard in the traditional hot rod chassis. To become a cornerstone of the industry took an unwavering commitment to Hot Rods and Hot Rodders just like you and us. It also took talent, enthusiasm, innovation and dedication from the Pete & Jake’s team. Pete & Jake wanted to ensure their legacy of American quality, commitment and do-it-right service lived on. They did so with the selection of Jerry and Peggy Slover as the new owners of Pete & Jake’s way back in 1986.
Today, we think you’ll agree that Jerry, Peggy, their son Jason, his wife Tina and the Pete & Jake’s family of hot rod specialists and enthusiasts have built on what Pete & Jake began nearly 40 years ago…employing American professionals to hand-create the very best hot rod parts on the market. All made in the USA.
