Kit car parts and accessories suppliers in the USA & Canada.

There are many companies that can help you complete your kit car, or provide parts for your existing vehicle. Some specialise in specific cars such as Factory Five Racing Roadsters, VW engined vehicles or street rods.

Specialist engine suppliers have a choice of power units for a wide range of vehicles. Others will provide the add-on parts to help you get the best from your engine.

Many of these firms have been established longer than the kit car manufacturers themselves - so they have a wealth of experience supplying tailor-made parts that include wiring harnesses, interior upholstery, painting services and other items to help make your car complete.
