"If We Can’t Do It Right, We Won't Do It"

About Us

Thank you for considering Core Customs, my name is Chris Valcore, the owner and operator of our custom automotive shop specializing in auto modifications, repairs and suspensions in Monroe, IA. With over 25 years of experience in all facets of automotive work we can offer a variety of automotive services including repairs, suspensions, restorations, maintenance, and much more. Custom work on cars, trucks, hot rods, muscle cars, and classic cars is our passion. The opportunity to take the desires of our customers and make them a reality is what makes us get up early, and stay in the shop late. Whether it is metal fabrication on the A-Pillar of a 64' Chevy pickup or installing a supercharger on a JKU Jeep, we can make it happen and send you out the door looking forward to more time behind the wheel. I encourage you to give us a call so we can talk about how to take your build from concept to reality.

Chris did a great job replacing my valve cover gasket and adding new 2” struts. Good price and the work was done quickly once the correct parts arrived. Testimonial written by Scott G on this site.

I had no heat in my car. This guy spent all day the Saturday after Thanksgiving getting it fixed! I'm very thankful for his service. Very reasonable price anywhere else would have been very expensive!
