Mopar is a mashup of the words “motor” and “parts.” It was first used around the 1920s as a short for Chrysler Motor Parts Corp. However, it gained popularity only in 1937 when Chrysler came out with their flagship product – Antifreeze. It might not seem like much today, but during the Great Depression, a product that would help poverty-stricken Americans travel hassle-free was something almost like a godsend. Now the brand boasts a complete range of motor parts, from engine parts to waxes cleaners, filters, and much more.
It is a subsidiary of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FAC) Global Service and Parts division which manufactures and distributes authentic replacement components, accessories, and parts for vehicles manufactured under the brand name Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge.
