Welcome to FHA
We are so excited that you're here! If you've made it to our website then you must be a hot rod enthusiast just ourselves! We are a classic car restoration shop located in the heart of the Midwest, just 30 minutes south of St. Louis, MO. We originally specialized in restoring Pontiac's and Oldsmobile's, but have completed many other make & model builds since our beginnings. Everything from GM, Plymouth, Nissan, Buick, etc. Our builds range from partial, rollers, back to original, restomods, or completely custom wicked frame-off builds. We have had the pleasure of restoring rare and Award Winning vehicles such as a 1969 GTO Judge, 1957 Bonneville's, 1957 Cadillac Baritz, and several chopped & sectioned 20's & 30's coupes. Not to mention the 1973 Datsun 240z which brought home one of only 24 Gold Cup Awards and two Goodguy's awards this past year.
Our shop moved from its original location off of Frisco Hill Rd. (which is where we get our name) to the new location off of Baumgartner Rd. in March of 2016 and changed ownership from Dave Trokey to Chris Doria. Since taking over, Chris has grown the company from 2 employees to 9! The new shop is a little over 10,000 Sq./Ft and has many features such as: a full-downdraft Col-Met paint/bake booth, a growing library of pre-1980 frame books, manuals, and interchanges. A Car-O-Liner frame rack, sectioned off clean room for reassembly, and an in-house upholstery shop. Plus, a 40+ year collection of Pontiac and Oldsmobile parts.
We can provide a wide array of services, custom car modifications, and we even collaborate with other restoration shops from around the country to provide body and paint services.
Whether you're in the beginning stages of thinking about doing some minor repair work or ready to start a full build we would love to help with your project. Each team member takes pride in their work and craftsmanship. What makes us different than other shops? Transparency. Throughout the entire process, from start to finish, we opt for: honesty, great communication, quality over quantity, emphasis on the cleanliness of our shop, and paying attention to detail. If you have questions about a project or would like to take a tour then please feel free to call the shop and speak with one of our teammates. We look forward to hearing from you and can't wait to see where the road will take us! -The FHA Team!
