History

Theodore P. “Ted” McMullen and U.S. Speed Sport

Ted McMullen was one of those unsung heroes of street rodding. He had a tremendous influence on the history of street rodding by introducing a style and design that has lasted decades. Ted was quite humble about it. His satisfaction was in the fact that he had done something well, had enhanced the hobby he loved and influenced so many others to also enjoy the hobby.

U.S. Speed Sport was born through Theodore P. “Ted” McMullen’s life long love of cars. Ted was born in 1929 in the car crazy capitol of Los Angeles. Growing up in L.A., Ted displayed a talent for things mechanical and an appreciation for things artistic – these elements came together in automobile designs.
