coche hecho por encargo coche personalizado see below


Explanation:
Coach is just a British way of saying car - so I think what we're talking about here is a customized car - hecho a la medida is good - you may also want to consider hecho por encargo or coche personalizado.
Hope this helps! Suerte!

carrocería hecha a medida


Explanation:
The 'coach' of a car refers to its body, excluding the engine. Cars were called 'horseless carriages' and the word 'coach' comes from the french and was the name given to horse-drawn carriages of a particular kind.
Coach-building for example is the profession of carbody construction.
