The need to feed a restoration of a 1967 Chevelle!
During the late 80’s the classic car itch could not be put off any longer for Mike. After about a 15-year hiatus of life without any muscle, Mike saved up enough money for a 1967 Chevelle SS. He attended multiple car shows and swap meets trying to find original GM and used parts for his Chevelle. Soon the leftover parts piled up. Mike became friends with other enthusiasts and the source for their parts. Mike, JK (Mike's Buddy), and Shawn (Mike's Son), filled vendor spots at these car shows with parts for sale. Mike's Restoration Parts soon came to life and turned into a full-time job. The need for restoration parts became ever so clear to Shawn who soon took over the business. A brick-and-mortar store was established to offer customers with quality restoration parts, original GM, and used parts. Muscle Car Central (MCC) was born, offering parts for 66-72 Chevelle and 68-72 Nova models. Ben came on board in 2001 to help with the ever-growing demand for quality restoration parts. MCC soon became a dealer for some of the biggest manufacturers in the industry.
The Launch of musclecarcentral.com.
After getting requests from many of the restorers to create a website, www.musclecarcentral.com was launched. In a short time, orders started to come in. Clay came on board to help manage the site and IT. Matt also joined the team to help manage the sales and customer service. With the website, MCC's reach became worldwide. Today MCC ships hundreds of packages a day all over the world.
Establishing Muscle Car Central!
Over the next 30 years, MCC continued to add more products to the store. MCC attended several car shows setting up huge tents filled with sheet metal, weatherstripping, emblems, trim, etc. The company expanded their selection of restoration parts to 1967-2023 Camaro Parts on www.camarocentral.com. Also 1967-2002 Firebird Parts were added on www.firebirdcentral.com. Operations moved to a few warehouses over the years. In 2008 MCC moved into its current warehouse located in Richmond, KY. Located directly off Interstate 75 with easy access for both customers and shipping companies. MCC now supplies parts and accessories worldwide. Starting with only 2 employees the company now has a friendly and knowledgeable staff of over 30 associates. With well over 100 years of Restoration Parts knowledge on staff, MCC is the nation's source for restoration parts.
Continually Learning and Sharing.
Still today, MCC is continually growing and expanding their offerings. You can still see them set up at many car shows on the east coast. Check the Car Show Schedule on the Homepage for a current list. Mike and JK still use the parts offered on this site for their personal cars. The knowledge of these parts is often passed to the sales and customer service teams. MCC continues to add new items weekly, including restoration parts, resto-mode upgrades, and used hard to find original parts. Our social media channels are growing and soon to come YouTube videos will be shared.
As the company, warehouse, and staff grew, the values remained the same; to provide quality restoration parts and an enjoyable shopping experience. We invite you to browse our store as well as call us for any questions regarding any of our products or comments you might want to share with us. We would love to hear from you.
