Located in Molalla Oregon, Eckert’s Rod and Custom has quickly become a world known restoration and street machine fabrication shop. In just a few short years, ERC has acquired multiple magazine features and its own episode on Spike TV’s hit series, PowerBlocks.

ERC cars have a signature concept/build style that can be described as simple, straight forward and well detailed with a priority for drivability. ERC doesn’t just build show cars. ERC’s goal is to build cars that can perform on the track as well. People just seem to know when they get behind the wheel of an ERC original.

ERC was founded by owner David Eckert. Eckert, an East Coast transplant with more than 25 years of hands on fabrication and design. He is thankful for the many people (now friends) in the industry that helped get ERC off the ground. Based on hard work, strong design, performance engineering and a lot of late nights, David has a created a strong foundation for ERC to grow. ERC is now housed in a 10,000 square foot full-service shop, including design, fabrication and painting. Whether you need repair, concourse-quality restoration, metal fabrication or a complete custom build, ERC can make your project a reality.

“I don’t build cars to trailer. I build them to drive.”
David Eckert
