We're here to help you achieve your goals

Our Foundation is Deep

I’m Stu Spears, founder of The Chassis Shop. This is more than just my story; it’s ours.

As with most great stories there is a spark that starts a fire. My passion for mechanical devices was ignited over 45 years ago, at the age of eleven, when my father hand sketched a diagram on the basics of how an internal combustion engine worked. My innate knowledge of mechanical devices was catalyzed. Many great teachers and mentors that followed were also influential in cultivating my life long ambitions in motorsports. 

Throughout my youth I was heavily involved in my own racing efforts, and after completing school this passion for performance led to the birth of The Chassis Shop in a small 1,000 sq ft garage. It didn’t take long, and the good news of our customers’ successes grew to span the globe with the use of our custom built race cars and our wide range of innovative products. Our successes have resulted in forging deep associations with some of the greatest names in racing.

Now more than three decades later we are still moving forward as leaders in our industry, and our facility houses the latest technologies. I’m also pleased to share that I’m an owner still very involved in all aspects: designing, testing, working closely with customers, on the shop floor, and you might even catch me on the phone. I’m still passionate about making a positive impact in our exciting world of performance motorsports.

The Chassis Shop’s commitment remains the same today as in our humble beginnings: we're focused on performance and delivering cutting-edge products to you at fair price. We've grown to become the One Stop supplier for specialized fabrication and performance motorsports components. And our team is assembled of the best people that you’ll find - making all the difference when you do business with us.

An Online Experience designed for you

We’ve had a presence online since the early nineties when business websites were just becoming en vogue. Since that time we’ve applied the same performance logic to our website that has driven us since the day we incorporated back in 1986. We’re running full throttle optimizing our Online Experience to be even more informative and easier to use – we invite you to check back often.

We're the Real Deal

We know our customers appreciate both the value and quality of our products. And we go to great lengths to get things right – whether you are standing in our showroom, talking over the phone or placing an order online. When you need to talk to someone, call us. 

On behalf of the entire talented Chassis Shop team, we look forward to helping you soon.
