Muscle Car Parts Mainstay The Paddock Facing Auction Block

Muscle Car Parts Mainstay The Paddock Facing Auction Block

The Paddocks Knightstown headquarters.

Avon, IN (PRWEB) May 22, 2010

The down economy has claimed another victim—The Paddock, a mainstay in the muscle car parts business for over 40 years. Indianapolis-based Key Auctioneers (www.KeyAuctioneers.com) announced today that it will auction the company’s parts inventory, showroom items, collectibles, vehicles, and equipment at the company’s 60,000-square-foot Knightstown facility.

The July 29 auction is expected to draw thousands of muscle car enthusiasts from the Midwest and beyond.

The Paddock has been a leading supplier of muscle car parts for several decades. Its thirteen parts lines represent some of America’s most popular muscle cars, including Mustang, Corvette, GTO, and Camaro.

Company founder Jim O’Neil started The Paddock in 1965, restoring muscle cars in a small shop in Knightstown. By 1979, the company was manufacturing Mustang steel patch panels. The company’s first Mustang catalog was printed soon thereafter and the company started to grow by word of mouth. In 1980, the first Camaro catalog was printed. In 1998, Wes Watts, a former parts manager for the local Chevrolet dealership, purchased the company from O’Neil.

Over the years the company added Firebird, GTO, Chevelle, Nova, Cutlass, Impala and other catalogs to its muscle car line. In 2001, Watts built a state-of-the art 60,000-square-foot facility to accommodate his growing business.

According the Watts, the economic downturn of the last three years, along with the credit crisis, contributed to the company’s demise.

Key Auctioneers Senior Vice President Tim Boeglin said the company’s intellectual property was garnering a high degree of interest. Included in the intellectual property are the company’s name and trademarks, million-name customer list, websites, catalogs, and phone numbers.

Essex Racing Stock Classic Ford Mustang Parts for Sale in UK and Europe

Essex, United Kingdom (PRWEB) June 15, 2009

Essex Racing have launched the Mustang parts website and mail order hotline to enable car restorers to find every single part they need to restore a classic Ford Mustang. The website specialize in classic Mustang parts and spares from 1965-1973. They stock everything there from panels, chrome parts, interior trim, lights, bumpers… right down to the original badges and decals. All the regular service parts are available to ensure a classic Ford Mustang car is serviced exactly as Ford intended, although if originally isn’t essential there are also parts from recognised American tuners such as Edelbrock, Shelby and Fidanza there too. Essex Racing have also come up with a few parts of their own as well, such as body kits.

With the value of late model cars falling through the floor there has never been a better time to invest in a classic car and American classics are more popular than ever, but – unless it’s a really rare model – it’s only cars in good condition and in good working order that make worthwhile investments. In poor condition it’s just an old car. Now Essex Racing can help car restorers turn an old car into a valuable classic, and at a sensible price too.

Everything is priced in Pounds (GBP) and can be sent by mail order. Unlike American websites there won’t be a need to use Dollar conversions and work out import tax and international shipping and if a customer needs help, they won’t have to make transatlantic phone calls at odd hours.

About Essex Racing

Essex Racing have been in the automotive industry for over 20 years, providing auto accessories and styling products. They are based in the UK, with their main warehouse in Rayleigh, Essex. Essex Racing Classics provide shipping worldwide, with the option of ordering over the telephone or online.
