One little part – a door sill plate, radio volume knob, rear wheel opening trim – can bring a restoration project to a sudden stop.
Considering that many of the classic Dodge, Chrysler and Plymouth cars popular with the restoration crowd have been out of production for several decades, finding a missing part can easily become a months-long quest. Need proof? Just check out the throngs of parts hunters in the swap meet area at major car shows such as the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals.
Mopar wants to see these classic vehicles off the jack stands, out of the garages and on the road. So it has teamed with restoration parts vendor Classic Industries to provide enthusiasts an Internet portal to speed up the parts search.
“You’ll find a pretty complete range of parts for anyone’s restoration,” says Todd Beddick, Head of Mopar Accessory and Performance Portfolio. “Sheet metal is a big commodity, badges, trim for the interior and exterior. We even have the complete set of decals for cars that were in the Scat Pack.”
The Mopar site also includes a link to download a 550-page catalog of parts for heritage FCA US vehicles from Classic Industries.
Having a classic Dodge, Chrysler or Plymouth in your garage is cool. Driving it is even cooler. Now, finding parts is easier.
