Not a Barn Find Customized 1961 Ford Econoline Shop Truck

There’re just some people that don’t know where to draw the line to stop when it comes to putting out quality automotive work. Harold Clay owner of Harold’s Hot Rod Shop is a perfect example. Harold has been doing quality work on cars and trucks since 1979 when he first opened the doors to Clay’s Collision Center in Enid, Oklahoma. Forty years later Harold still has a hand in day-to-day operations at Clay’s Collision, but if you want to find him it will be past the 12,500-square-foot collision shop and at the very back in an 8,500 square-foot building enjoying his true passion building high-end hot rods.
