About Us

For his entire life, Carl Moyer has been involved in the automotive industry. After many years of success with his dealership and racing he opened up Karl Kustoms specializing in hot rods, parts and accessories. We not only sell these parts, we install the same parts on hot rods and classics in our Des Moines shop. Our employees eat, sleep, and breathe performance and we’re excited you’re here to do the same.

We are affiliated with Karl Chevrolet, a local Iowa dealership, but at Karl Kustoms we focus on more than just Chevys. You'll find parts/accessories for all makes and models on KarlKustoms.com. We can even help you customize your ride with aftermarket parts you won't find easily elsewhere.

What Makes Karl Kustoms Different?

On our site, you will only find parts we believe in. We work with the brands we carry in our machine shop, custom shop, and service shop where we do restoration, custom upholstery, custom painting, bodywork, install accessories, and a whole lot more.

  • Shop a full line of race products and performance upgrades for the street.
  • Shop confidently. We accept returns on new, uninstalled products (re-stocking and shipping fees will apply).
  • If you are unsure of fitment, be sure to contact us before completing an order.
  • Our parts and accessory selection is HUGE.

Whether you are a racer (dirt cars, we see you!), high-performance enthusiast (boaters, we see you too!), or a classic-car collector, we've got what you need.

In addition to all this, Karl Kustoms has experienced machinists on staff and even sells some of the finest hot rods in the country. If you're in town, you should stop by. Or, give us a call to see how we can make your hot rod dreams a reality!
