In this month’s Shop Talk, we visited Classic Performance Products out of Anaheim, CA., because this company is the number one source for steering, braking, and suspension, accessories. We last visited with CPP a few years back, and upon this visit, we were amazed to see how much they’ve grown over the years. Since that first visit, the company has expanded into a newer building which has been progressed into a full manufacturing facility to help CPP keep up with the high demands of its customers needs.
CPP’s reputation has grown over the years, thanks to the fact that the company has dedicated their research to developing products that help classic cars drive like modern day road warriors. The company has put years of research into their products ideas and the CPP R&D department now has the ability to create prototype parts out of hard plastic before proceeding with full metal development. Once the prototype parts are dialed in, CPP’s machine shop department can fabricate them and begin production. This has helped the company to manufacture a variety of different products to reinforce any weak areas of your build.
For instance, the welding team is able to build tubular arms and cross members for different applications. CPP’s steering conversions are also quite popular, as they have been the key component in the company’s growth. Today, they up the ante as they lead the competition, having developed their own 500 series steering boxes that give you all the benefits of a modern car. With a huge showroom and an expert sales team, CPP’s parts are displayed to give customers a full visual of what the parts will look like once they are installed.
Everything that CPP sells is inspected before it is shipped, keeping CPP standards high on everything from its budget line of chrome steering columns, to the bolt-on disc brake kits. This emphasis on such high quality control has helped the business to earn a reputation among their customers as a reliable supplier and industry cornerstone. CPP’s variety of products include cross drilled brakes, spindles, transmission cross members, gas tanks, steering columns, front end components; you name it, they carry it all. Make sure to stop by or call them to order a catalog, and when they ask, make sure to let them know you heard about them in this month’s Lowrider magazine!
