WEEDETR Street Rod Components Does the Job!


WEEDETR Street Rod Components was started in 1986 by Dale Caulfield. Mr. Caulfield has been in the business of building street rods for over 30 years. At the beginning of the "Fat Fender" popularity, Mr Caulfield was in the process of building three fat fendered Fords from the ground up. Since he had already built his own 40 Ford sedan delivery, he decided that the suspension system under it would be good to manufacture for use under these vehicles because it worked so well and it could be made to be simple to install.
With the product line now over three hundred part numbers and the coverage expanding from 1926 Ford to mid-60's GM vehicles, there doesn't appear to be an end to the products that WEEDETR is working on.

Our customer service and professional manner are unmatched in the industry. WEEDETR believes in customer service as our number 1 priority.

Dale Caulfield started out in the street rod industry in the late 1960's doing body and paint work for his father, Jim Caulfield. Jim had a shop in Southern California that did body and paint work primarily on antique and hot rod cars. He has worked on several famous cars in his career. The first one was the Bud Bryan/Rod & Custom hiboy. This was the first of the nostalgia roadsters that pushed the return of the flathead hiboys. Another car was the Doyle Gammel 32 three window. They rechopped the top, did other body repairs and painted the car. Probably three of the most famous cars that he did were the thirty four three window coupes of Pete Chapouris and Jim Jacobs of Pete and Jakes fame, and Jim Ewing of SuperBell Axle company.
As time progressed, Dale started doing frame and chassis work also. After moving to Northern California, the business catered strictly to antique and street rod work. An occasional race car snuck in also.
