More than 75 Years of Mopar
Mopar (a simple contraction of the words MOtor and PARts) was trademarked for
antifreeze product in 1937. The Mopar brand made its mark in the 1960s — the
muscle-car era. The Chrysler Corporation built race-ready Dodge and Plymouth
"package cars" equipped with special high-performance parts. Mopar carried a
line of "special parts" for super-stock drag racers and developed its racing
parts division called Mopar Performance Parts to enhance speed and handling
for both road and racing use. The brand has expanded to include technical
service and customer support.
