Mopar


Mopar
Mopar has recently become involved in sprint car racing.

Mopar (short for Motor Parts) is the automobile parts and service arm of Chrysler Group LLC. The term was first used by Chrysler in the 1920s and has been in continuous use ever since. Mopar parts are original equipment manufactured parts for Chrysler vehicles. In Canada, these were sold under the Chryco and AutoPar brands until the Mopar brand was phased into that nation's market, starting in the late 1970s.

Mopar has passed into broader usage among car enthusiasts as an unambiguous reference to the Chrysler parent company, as the Chrysler name also refers to a company marque. The term has thus become an inclusive word for any Chrysler-built vehicle—most any Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Imperial, or DeSoto, plus Jeeps and sometimes Eagle vehicles built after Chrysler's 1987 buyout of AMC-Jeep. Thus, for example, a car club for owners of any Chrysler Corporation vehicle might describe itself as a club for Mopar enthusiasts.

Sponsorship

In the United States and Canada, Mopar participates in Formula D. Formula Drift drivers are Samuel Hubinette, in Canadian Drift Championship are Vanessa Ozawa, Kevin Huynh, John Yakomoto. Mopar also sponsors NHRA drag racer Allen Johnson in that series' Pro Stock division.[citation needed]
