Having our headquarters in Southern California has some advantages and disadvantages. While some may say the earthquakes, the high cost of living, and super strict cops are enough to keep them as far away as possible from the Golden State, we, on the other hand think, that they’re all a small price to pay for the beautiful beaches and the year-round sunny weather. However, the thing that we like best about being in Southern California is that it’s the perfect place to be when we need parts.
Recently, while working on one of our project vehicles, we hit a snag and realized we were missing a few items. Luckily, Classic Industries, a leading name in the parts game, is just right up the freeway from us. After going through their catalog to see what we needed we were on our way to Classic Industries’ headquarters over in beautiful Huntington Beach, California.
Founded in 1976, Classic Industries originally started off selling hard-to-find restoration parts for early-model Camaros from their small facility in Palm Springs. Today, Classic Industries carries a wide inventory of restoration, performance, and customization parts for Camaros, Firebirds, Novas, Bel Airs, Impalas, Biscaynes, Caprices, Chevy and GMC trucks, and Mopars, while their headquarters has expanded to include a showroom, corporate offices, production, call center, shipping center, and an expanded warehouse.
One of the most important things that makes Classic Industries so great is their incredible customer service skills. Whether it’s on the phone, online, or in their showroom, the staff of Classic Industries is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and determined to help their customers any way they can. Whether it’s helping track down a must-have part or providing technical support to get them past any unexpected setbacks, the Classic Industries staff is there to make sure your restoration project doesn’t turn into a restoration nightmare.
Combined with the fact that Classic Industries has one of the largest parts inventories on hand in the restoration industry, the staff at Classic Industries is certain to have everything you need when you need it. This is something we know firsthand. Within moments of walking through Classic Industries’ doors we were met by one of their employees, eager to help us out. Before we knew it, we were on our way back to the garage with everything we needed (plus a few other things we’ll need later), ready to continue wrenching. With service like this it’s no wonder Classic Industries has become one of the most trusted providers of restoration and performance parts in the country.
