In 2017, Classic Industries acquired California Mustang, California Muscle, and Highway Classics, notable purveyors of restoration parts and accessories for classic Ford and Mercury vehicles for over 40 years. California Mustang, California Muscle, and Highway Classics were leaders in the Classic Ford and Mercury Parts industry since 1976. And Classic Industries has moved their Ford and Mercury parts into our enormous warehouse in Huntington Beach, California.

Classic Industries supplies Classic Mustang parts to 1964-04 Mustang owners in every U.S. state and to more than 70 countries worldwide. This site is dedicated to a wide variety of performance, upgrade, and stock replacement parts and accessories for classic Mustang models. Also available on the website is our selection of 1960-70 Ford Falcon parts and accessories for our Classic Falcon Fans.

The acquisition and merger of Classic Industries with California Mustang, California Muscle, and Highway Classics makes Classic Industries one of the largest and most trusted providers of restoration and performance parts in the automotive parts industry. Check out our website to shop our massive parts selection for many other Ford and Mercury models, including Ford Truck, Bronco, Falcon, Ranchero, Torino, Fairlane, Galaxie, Mercury Comet, Cougar, and other models!

In February of 2022, Classic Industries announced a merger with The Parts Place Inc.
located in Dekalb, Illinois. The merger is expected to bring both companies to new
heights of quality, exposure, and customer satisfaction while offering an unmatched
product selection and customer experience. The Parts Place Inc. has been serving the
muscle car industry since 1990. The company started with GM muscle cars but
soon branched out to other American makes and models, including late-model American
cars and trucks from manufacturers such as General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. The
company produces many parts they sell so consumers can skip the middle man
and buy directly from the source.

The Parts Place Inc. will continue to serve automotive enthusiasts from their
headquarters and warehouse facility in Dekalb, Illinois. Classic Industries will continue
to serve owners of GM, Ford, Chrysler, and more from their corporate headquarters and
warehouse facility in Huntington Beach, California.

Parts Unlimited Interiors (PUI) In 2023, Classic Industries acquired Parts Unlimited Interiors (PUI). Headquartered in La Grange, Kentucky, PUI is a leading manufacturer of aftermarket automotive interior soft goods. The company has developed a comprehensive product portfolio of seat upholstery, interior door panels, window felts, and other interior soft goods that serve a wide range of makes and models, including GM, Mopar, and Ford. The acquisition of Parts Unlimited Interiors provides Classic Industries with a US-based source of seat upholstery, interior door panels, window felts, and other interior soft goods while giving Classic Industries better control of the company’s supply and catalog selection as well as an extensive supplement to Classic Industries’ growing catalog of offerings.

Classic Industries has been featured on many major TV shows, such as Overhaulin', Chop Cut Rebuild, My Classic Car, Barrett-Jackson, All Girls Garage, Car Chasers, Wheeler Dealers, Graveyard Carz, and has appeared in numerous magazines, including Hot Rod, Car Craft, Hemmings Motor News, and most publications that feature classic and muscle cars.

Classic Industries is more than just restoration parts.
