- The history of ACP began over 35 years ago in Los Angeles, California. The primary focus at the time was the manufacturing of steel bumpers for various vehicles. ACP made the decision to have these bumpers professionally chromed in the United States, satisfying dealers and consumers alike. Top grade quality was our standard from the start. From there, we focused on the Classic Mustang, becoming the first to reproduce the 1965 Mustang Headlight Extension – a continuous top seller to this day.
Providing Classic Mustangs with quality restoration parts soon became a large aspect of our identity and was cemented with our first major line of Enhanced Accuracy Fuel Sending Units.
Since then we have embraced a spectrum of manufacturing capabilities to provide our customers with a broad range of quality restoration parts while gradually expanding and developing parts for additional Ford/Mercury vehicles. This includes: Bronco, Comet, Cougar, Econoline, Fairlane, Falcon, Ford and Mercury Full-Sized Cars, Ford Truck, Foxbody / Latemodel Mustang, Galaxie, Maverick, Ranchero, Thunderbird & Torino.

What does it mean to have Top Grade restoration parts? At ACP, we ensure that the quality of our parts are trusted by Restoration Professionals and backed by our 100% Product Guarantee. We do this by striving to match or exceed OEM standards while maintaining the original factory look. Our team also understands how important it is to get the right fit, that’s why we enforce a strict level of fitment standards for each of our direct-to-fit replacement parts so you can install with confidence.
