Vintage Auto Parts Distributor & Manufacturer
Available for sale is an iconic Southern California wholesale and retail distributor of hard to find vintage automotive parts for a well known European auto marque. The business has made a wise investment in setting up overseas manufacturing of certain difficult to replace parts, emblems, and accessories. The newly manufactured replacement parts augment an enormous inventory of rare original parts. The business has been one of the main sources of vintage parts for nearly 50 years.
There are existing wholesale relationships with many large distributors that would continue post-sale. The current owner also sells direct to customers at vintage car meets around California, and at a physical store that double as a warehouse. The distributor is currently in the process of creating a modern website, complete with an e-commerce portal that will allow both distributors and consumers to buy parts quickly and easily, nationwide. Over $300,000 in parts inventory not included in asking price.
