Keeping Your Classic American

     California Pony Cars is known to be #1 when it comes to premium quality  parts that are made in the U.S.A. Customers have grown to trust a product when they see the CPC Premium Black packaging. Over the years we have noticed an increase of imports products hitting the shelves in the U.S.; the most popular being the 1965-66 Mustang Steering Wheel Center Cap. Below you will find comparison photos that show distinct differences between our quality Steering Wheel Center Cap versus the cheap import. We hope this will educate the masses on these cheap knock offs.

Imported versions come in a generic box. This one states “Made in Taiwan”
Our product is packed in our Premium Black packaging, making it easily identifiable with the rest of our products.

Imported versions have a rough uneven brushed finish and are made from unknown material and strength. Quality is a big concern, if material used is unknown, it may fail under certain conditions. Our product is made from zinc die cast , has a flawless brushed finish as the original, and is finished with triple chrome plating.

The lack of detail on this import part is a huge give away. The text is excessively large, no where close to concourse correct. The cheap plastic center cap covers the poorly detailed center decals. The lack of detail is no match against our product. The hand painted pony and stripes are identical to those of the original, and the letters and sizing are concourse correct. The finely detailed decals lay under a clear acrylic lens.

 When it comes to buying products, fitment is always a concern. The import version has a cheap cut out brace with cheap tin hangers making them more likely to crack under pressure (get it…Crack-under-pressure…anyways) Our brace resembles those of the original and has hangers that are built to last. We place the foam as an insulator just as Ford did when they manufactured these parts.

Some consumers say “How can your products be so great if they are after-market parts”
1. Every product we manufacture meets the highest quality standards in the market, in most cases exceeds the quality of original parts.
2. Our products are licensed by Ford so our customers can rely on us for the highest quality part available.
3. Most importantly our products come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Remember, not all replacement parts are the same! We take pride that our products are made in the U.S.A. This is American made without breaking the bank. Keep your classic American vehicle classically American!
