Chris Carlson Hot Rods, owned by Chris & Karma Carlson, is a full service rod & custom shop located in Mulvane, KS which is just south of Wichita. The shop opened in 2003 as Chaotic Customs, Mulvane KS and in May 2014 the name was changed to Chris Carlson Hot Rods. We have a 15,000 square foot, state of the art facility and a professional, talented crew of expert employees experienced in all aspects of custom work. We are celebrating our twelfth year in business and have completed over 100 complete builds. Our services include custom paint & body, custom exhaust fabrication, repair & maintenance and sales & installation. Our in-house upholstery shop can custom design interiors for street rods, factory OEM interiors for muscle cars, or recreate period correct interiors for specialty restorations. In addition to the shop, we have a hot rod parts and accessories store offering everything from A/C units to original artwork.

Our builds have been featured at SEMA, Barrett-Jackson and have had award winning runs on the ISCA circuit. Follow our Facebook page to see the latest work on our SEMA 2015 build, a 1949 Buick that will be shown in the NAPA/Martin Senour booth.

While we work hard at Carlson Hot Rods, we love what we do and we have fun doing it! Like us on Youtube to see videos of builds in progress. Our videos are informative, fun, and upbeat. Building custom cars is not just a job for Chris and his crew; it’s a way of life!
