7674 Compton Avenue
7674 Compton Avenue is the address of the third Barris Kustoms shop.
In 1946 George and Sam Barris pooled their resources and rented a small shop on Imperial Avenue in Los Angeles in 1946. It didn't take long before they had outgrown the Imperial Avenue shop, so they quickly moved to a larger location at 7674 Compton Avenue in Los Angeles. After moving the shop, they changed their name to "Barris's Custom Shop". At the time they were an official Brake Station, something that helped improve the cash flow day to day. After moving in to the Compton shop, George started to freelance for Hot Rod Magazine. Barris Kustoms got a lot of press, and the once so large Compton shop were soon to small to house all of the cars that customers brought over. In 1949 George and Sam were forced to move their operations to an even larger shop at 4120-1/2 East Florence Avenue in Bell.
