Everything You Need to Know about MOPAR 

What does MOPAR stand for?

mopar for sale near me

MOPAR derives from the combination of the words “motor” and “parts” and started as a slang term for Chrysler’s antifreeze (yep, that still exists!). MOPARs then referred to parts that could be used on cars manufactured by Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth that were typically higher-end and more expensive than their counterparts. Simply put, the MOPAR name referred to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts as well as MOPAR accessories. Over time, the name began to cover more than MOPAR parts; it also now applies to MOPAR vehicles

What is the history of MOPAR?

MOPAR was originally coined by Chrysler in the 1920’s to sell their OEM car parts and antifreeze. The name then became its own brand in 1937. Today it is widely used by car enthusiasts to describe both vehicles and parts produced by the “new” Chrysler group (post 1987 Chrysler buyout), now including some Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Imperial, DeSoto, Ram Trucks, Fiat, and even Jeep and AMC vehicles. 

What is a MOPAR muscle car?

For car enthusiasts, hearing the term MOPAR automatically brings to mind the iconic “Muscle Car Era” and most definitely raw, unbridled power! This is due to the fact that MOPAR vehicles have an origin steeped in racing history. MOPAR boasts a long history with NASCAR as sponsors, race car part producers, and even the development of a few race cars. Some of the most famous MOPAR muscle cars are the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Super Bee, the Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda, and the Dodge Charger R/T Daytona HEMI Superbird. 

What is the best MOPAR?

While this is highly debatable, some of the most popular MOPAR cars of all time include:

  • 1957 DeSoto Adventurer
  • 1958 Chrysler 300D
  • 1968 Dodge Dart Hurst L023
  • 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona
  • 1970 Plymouth Superbird
  • 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda
  • 1978 Dodge Lil’ Red Express
  • 1986 Shelby GLH-S
  • 1992 Dodge Viper
  • Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Super Bee

What brands are considered MOPAR?

It all started with Chrysler. Since then, MOPAR has incorporated the many brands owned or manufactured by Chrysler (now FCA) including Dodge, Plymouth, Jeep, Ram trucks, and as of 2017, Fiat and Alpha Romeo (FCA Italy is responsible for the Italian brands). 

What is the most powerful MOPAR engine?

MOPAR is launching its newest MOPAR crate engine which is touted to be the most powerful engine: the 807-horsepower Hellcrate Redeye 6.2-liter Supercharged HEMI® V-8 engine.

What is the best MOPAR engine of all time?

Many would argue, based on popularity and performance, that the 426 Hemi takes this title.
