Packard Industries was built in 1978 on the idea of covering the day-to-day costs of business with wholesale division. Our main objective was to supply the various specialist retailers in the industry. At first we did not actually provide engine parts. We started out with a small suspension line, water pumps and fuel pumps. As we grew we added the engine parts. In the early years there was little to no competition as many of our competitors only dealt in a certain engine make. We would offer parts for something as common as an engine overhaul kit for a 216 Chevrolet to something as unique as a set of pistons for REO.
