All of us at Mopar Connection Magazine are very excited to welcome Classic Industries as our newest advertiser for 2017. Originally founded in 1976, starting off as selling small, hard-to-find items for strictly Camaro restoration, Classic Industries moved to a small warehouse in Huntington Beach, CA. There, as a teenager I discovered Classic Industries. With very little money to spend, I recall loitering in their showroom, chatting up the bored desk clerk, asking about unusual options on various models, and even occasionally rehanging items on the racks and shelves.
As I grew older and discovered the world of Mopar, so did Classic Industries. Their expansion into a far larger headquarters (just down the road from the old shop on Gothard Ave.) now features a huge showroom, corporate offices, production, call center, shipping center and an expansive warehouse, also included their venture into providing hard-to-find and superior-quality restoration outlets, now filling one of the largest and most expansive catalogs in our industry for A, B and E-body Dodges and Plymouths (from 1960-1976).
In the interim, Classic Industries has been the subject and sponsor of many major TV shows, (including Overhaulin’, Chop Cut Rebuild, and My Classic Car), as well as multiple appearances and sponsors of magazines like Hot Rod, Car Craft, Hemmings Motor News, and most recently, Mopar Connection Magazine, the only digital Mopar enthusiast magazine officially licensed (and recognized) by FCA. In addition to top-of-the-line restoration parts, Classic Industries also stocks many performance and customization brands like Air Ride, AutoMeter, B&M, Lokar, Hurst, Auto Meter, Detroit Speed & Engineering, Edelbrock, Moser and many more.
Classic Industries’ commitment to making the purchasing experience all that more enjoyable is found in their promise to having parts ready for shipping, a toll-free telephone ordering service, 24/7 online ordering and state-of-the-art order processing. As we plan for the new year, make sure to keep an eye out for special offers, discount (coupon) codes, and plenty of great restoration technical content from Classic Industries here at Mopar Connection.
