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.
