In this Month’s August Shop talk, we visited Original Parts Group Incorporated in Seal Beach, CA. If you own a Monte Carlo, Chevelle, or El Camino, you will know that this shop has certainly evolved from its humble beginnings. Today they are housed in a huge warehouse that is designed to keep growing, as every year the company keeps adding to their catalog of parts. With a focus on constantly updating the company’s parts catalogs, OPGI stocks parts for the following makes and models: Chevelle, GTO, Skylark, Grand Prix, Cadillac, Riviera, Cutlass, and my favorite, the Monte Carlo.
An experienced group, OPGI has been in the business for over two decades. In that time, they have manufactured thousands of their own signature restoration parts. In addition to their own, they have hundreds of loyal and dedicated suppliers that they can tap to help you with any needs you might have. One of the company’s most impressive aspects lies in the fact that not only are they stocked with a huge variety of products, they also have a wide range of convenient and cost effective shipping services. Most of North America can be reached via the company’s association with FedEx Ground, and typical ground service to all parts of the continental USA between 1 and 3 days in the Western Coastal states, and 5 to 7 days to the Eastern Seaboard states. When ordering parts over $499.00, they will also ship them for free which is convenient for those big purchases.
Next time you need parts for your Monte Carlo or other GM cars that OPGI specializes in, make sure to pay them a visit online or if you live locally, stop on by and see what the aftermarket super store has for your ride. Either way, don’t forget to tell them you learned about them through the pages of Lowrider Magazine!
