Welcome to Early Times Autos. I’m Steve Coade and I have had a passion for hot rodding for more than 35 years and have been fortunate enough to have built and owned many classics throughout this time. My personal favourites are mainly 1932 and 1934 fords. My current rides are a 1932 pickup, a 1932 5-window coupe and a 1956 chevy sports coupe and I’m building a 1932 tudor and roadster for myself.

What started out a few years (20) ago bringing in a few early Ford bodies and cars for myself and a few friends has since developed into a full time business. As the demand has increased over the years, more and more people have asked me to locate 2nd hand and new parts for their projects.

We are now Queensland’s largest supplier of quality chassis components for Hot Rods.

This demand has also seen us now stocking a large range of products like

  • Taillights
  • Steering columns,
  • Fuel tanks
  • Grills
  • Head lights
  • Bars
  • Gauges
  • And so much more…

American Connection

I travel to the USA 5-6 times a year going to swap-meets all over the country, sourcing parts and cars for clients (and myself). Sourcing 2nd hand parts and panels over the years for customers has been a large part of what we actually do. With every trip our inventory expands further.

With containers leaving every month from the States we make sure the shelves are well stocked for you, whether you are restoring or hot rodding we can deliver you the parts and advice you need with minimal fuss. We stock chassis ready to go, no waiting time and can also supply them rolling to meet your requirements.

We can also fit Queensland modification plates change your motor, transmission, upgrades, brakes and more.
