About Us

With thousands of parts in stock, Ground Up Motors - ss396.com is the ultimate source for detailing and restoration parts as well as expert advice for keeping your classic American muscle running and looking its best!

When we started Ground Up Motors, we had one thing in mind, bring the best quality restoration parts to everyone, from the weekend driver to the 1000-point restoration. As the years progressed, Ground Up Motors grew from one person operating out of a garage to our brand new 60,000+ square foot facility in Palm Coast, Florida. Though we have grown, our passion and vision have remained the same, keeping the excitement of classic American muscle running by providing the best parts available, an easy-to-use website, and the best customer support team.

At Ground Up Motors, we help with the project, not just the part. Whether you need help finding the right parts, project advice, or tech help, our dedicated team is here for you. With over 30 completed muscle car restorations under our belt, including our frame-off 1970 Chevelle LS6 restoration, to our radical pro-touring 1978 Z/28 LSX Camaro, there’s nothing we have not seen or done.

Ground Up Motors understands that your restoration is a big part of your life. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to join many in this process and look forward to more years of continued service. Thank you for your business and for being a part of the Ground Up Motors family.
