About Us

About Us

What began as a young teen’s hobby building model cars on a bench grew to become Phoenix Rod & Custom, founded, owned and managed by Glenn Smith. Phoenix, which opened in 1998, is now one of northern New Jersey’s premium hot rod builders and customizers. Glenn was joined in the family business by his son Craig in 2003. 

Prior to opening Phoenix Rod & Custom, Glenn spent 25 years working in and managing several major restoration shops in northern New Jersey. He has completed ground-up restorations on hundreds of cars of all makes and models, which have gone on to win many major car shows and awards.

Not just any car buff can work at Phoenix Rod & Custom. All the Phoenix pros have been customizing, restoring and designing hot rods, classic cars, vintage cars and muscle cars nearly all of their lives. All that experience is reflected many times over in the superior quality of the finished product.

Glenn Smith is a member of National Street Rod Association (NSRA).

A Reputation Built on Quality and Trust

At Phoenix Rod & Custom, we work hard to earn our customers’ trust and build lasting relationships with car collectors and hobbyists who love classic, custom and restored cars as much as we do. Our dedication to our craft is reflected in the number of repeat customers we’ve had over the years … customers who appreciate that we take care of their cars long after the initial work is done.

Phoenix customers come from all over the United States to have our pros customize or restore their automobiles. As those projects progress, we send email updates and photos of their cars so our long-distance customers can watch their investments become their dream cars. We have even repaired and prepared automobiles that were customized by other shops, but that failed to perform as expected.
