MOPAR LAUNCHES MODERN V-8 CRATE ENGINE KITS FOR CLASSIC MUSCLE CARS

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is making Mopar Crate Hemi engine kits available as a factory-backed option for Mopar vehicles from 1975 and earlier. The automaker used the 2016 SEMA Show to reveal new Mopar 345 and 392 Crate Hemi engine kits with factory-spec wiring harnesses and power control modules to help put modern 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter V-8 engines into classic vehicles.

There are also a number of accessories from oil pans and filters as add-ons. All are in stock and can be ordered through a dealer or online at Mopar’s website.

For those restoring old cars, FCA has launched www.Mopar.com/restoration as a one-stop resource. Instead of going to swap meets, the site provides information and access to approved Mopar restoration parts licensees and is a source for more than 9,000 parts and accessories for your classic muscle car. Mopar teamed up with Classic Industries which is a licensee of restoration and performance parts. Customers can search parts by licensee name or product category such as exterior or interior trim, sheet metal, grilles, spoilers, bumpers or steering wheels.
