Everything’s For Sale, Even The Business

Mo-Par City Classic B-Body Section

Mo-Par City in Oregon, Illinois, is closing within the next few months. If you’re looking for a restoration project on vintage Dodge, Plymouth or other classic Mopar muscle cars, then you should contact owner Larry Pontnack before his stock gets crushed. At nearly 80 years of age, he has dedicated over 50 years of service to the Mopar restoration community, but he’s decided it’s finally time to retire.

Mo-Par City: A Piece Of Muscle Car History

Mo-Par City is a one-of-a-kind business with tons of valuable stock that could be taken over by a younger team and run profitably for decades to come. In fact, according to DodgeGarage, Larry Pontnack has been posting national advertisements stating this fact for 10 years but has not yet found the right buyer. So if you happen to have a dream of starting your own classic Mopar cars and parts business, this might be a suitable alternative rather than having to find the right plot of land and scrounge the country for parts. The hard work has already been done for you. You just need to run the business.

Mo-Par City Main Building Interior

Mo-Par City is located just 90 miles from Chicago on a large plot of business-zoned land. The lot has hundreds of viable A-,B-,C- and E-body project muscle cars, vans, and trucks, as well as six storage buildings and workshops with over 30,000 feet of covered space jam-packed with thousands of loose Mopar parts. The parts can suit anyone’s needs ranging from date-coded glass, engine, N.O.S. parts in factory wrappers, and vintage Clutch Flite drag race transmissions. If you’re not ambitious enough to buy a business and keep it alive, then there’s still the opportunity to buy a core vehicle and start a restoration project.

Larry Pontnack has stated that he is happy to negotiate attractive prices rather than watch the crusher get to the vehicles. Right now, a stronghold of Mopar history is currently facing the jaws of doom. But with any luck, Mo-Par City will live on in the hands of new owners. So whether you’re in the market to take control of a business, or start a new project, now is the time to act before everything is destroyed.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
