Founded in 1985 by two friends and their passion for cool cars to drive to school, CJ Pony Parts is, at its roots, about the love of the automotive restoration and performance hobby. We continue that tradition today by giving our customers the widest selection of OEM, NOS and aftermarket products available, ensuring they can make their Mustang, Focus ST, Fiesta ST, Bronco, F-150, F-100, Chevy Truck, Dodge Truck, Toyota Truck, or Jeep into their dream vehicle.

CJ Pony Parts has always remained inside the Central Pennsylvania area until 2017 when we opened our doors in the Las Vegas area. Since our humble beginnings in a 10’ x 10’ barn space, CJ Pony Parts has continued to grow as more space was needed to house more parts and employees. It wasn't long until the 63,000 square feet of space in PA wasn't enough. Our new facility in Las Vegas offers an additional 100,000 square feet of warehouse and office space to keep up with our fast growing inventory.
CJ Pony Parts strives to be the best in everything that we do. Nowhere else is that more apparent than on our state-of-the-art website. CJPonyParts.com offers the same robust features found on big-name retail sites to give customers in the automotive community the same easy and immersive shopping experience. You can chat with a live customer service representative, track orders from your account in real-time, see inventory availability, and use loyalty rewards to save on your orders. Our site also boasts an adaptive format that changes the look and feel of the website to fit the screen you are using, so you are never fumbling through a fixed format that is too big on your mobile device or too simple on your desktop computer.
Continue to look out for big things coming from CJ Pony Parts in the future. We will always build upon our mission statement and bring our patrons the best product offerings, customer support, and features that you would expect from a 34-year company.
