Did you know this year is Classic Industries' 35th in the repro-parts business? (That's something worth celebrating!)

Come on in for more about them, and their display at this year's Woodward Dream Cruise....

Classic Industries is celebrating its 35th anniversary by taking a break from the sun and sand of Huntington Beach, California, and heading to suburban Detroit for the legendary Woodward Dream Cruise. This trip is especially fitting, as Classic Industries owes much of its success to the Motor City.

Here's where you'll find Classic Industries during the Woodward Dream Cruise, in the Northwood Shopping Center

Classic Industries will set up at the Northwood Shopping Center in Royal Oak, at the corner of Woodward Avenue and 13 Mile Road (near Duggan's Irish Pub!) on Saturday, August 18. Woodward Dream Cruisers are invited to stop by.

In addition to the iconic vehicles behind the restoration hobby originating from Detroit (or Highland Park,where Chrysler's styling and engineering HQ once was), Classic Industries was founded by a Detroit native, Jeff Leonard, who came to Southern California, noticed many well-preserved 1960’s muscle cars, and saw a demand for parts and accessories to keep these vehicles on the road.

“Coming from Detroit, I was used to seeing lots of rust on the few surviving older models that were still on the Michigan highways. But in California, there were plenty of these cars still cruising the streets without a single speck of rust.” says Jeff.

“Having had difficulty locating a replacement carpet set for my own car, I realized that with so many classics still driving, there would be a need for parts that dealers could no longer provide. I decided to do whatever I could to bring quality reproduction and replacement parts to an enthusiast market that was in desperate need of them.”

Thus inspired, Jeff Leonard started Classic Industries in the mid-1970’s.

Thanks to its connection to the Motor City, Classic Industries quickly became the restoration industry leader and 35 years later,  plays a huge part in the classic Mopar restoration parts market.

From its headquarters in "Surf City, USA", Classic Industries produces eight different mail order catalogs--one  of 'em just for Mopars--that help countless Mopar lovers and classic-car enthusiasts keep their cars on the road.
