Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle is owned by me, Kevin Tully, and my partner, Chad Hill.

I’m not your run-of-the-mill “master builder” as so many fabricators seem to be today. Not me, I’m always learning, and am far from being a “master” of metal craft. I’ve had my hands in cars and bikes since that meant the pedal kind.

I attended the University Of Alaska for Welding Technologies and then to the U.S. Air Force and their Aircraft Fabricators School at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD. After that was on to Autofab Racecars where I studied under Mark Constantine and learned all about chassis engineering and monster horsepower.

I’m dedicated to bringing old school craftsmanship and tradition back to today’s hot rodding as well as bringing the trades back into focus for today's youth.




My name is Chad Hill and in 2006 I became Kevin Tully’s new partner at Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle. I have been a graphic designer/art director in downtown Chicago for 21 years, opening my own automotive aftermarket based design firm, Django Studios, in 2012. My passion is hot rods. I have several, but the 3 you are most likely to see on the road are my 1936 Ford 5 window coupe, 1955 Chevy wagon or my 1967 Chevelle SS convertible. In 2006, I drove the ‘36 coupe to Austin, TX for the Lonestar Round Up car show, and had a great time on the 2400 mile round trip.

Whether you're into hot rods, customs or road racing and drag racing, we can build a car for you that will exceed your expectations visually and from a performance level.
