American Sports Car website is dedicated to Rex Orr, who founded American Sports Car in 1979.
Here at American Sports Car we enjoy technology. As a matter of fact we like it alot, we use it every day to coordinate the day to day responsibilities of running our family owned business.
However, we prefer to keep the technology outside the shop door. We are a bit more old-fashioned, we use our hands! That’s right; we have no chopper guns, no robots, and no assembly line. Our experienced team takes no shortcuts, makes no compromises, so you get no bull!
Does it take longer to hand build? Absolutely! We sacrifice the time so we don’t have to sacrifice the quality. You get that quality handmade part to complete that baby you’ve been restoring for years. Does it cost a bit more? Of course. The price, well let’s just say it’s worth it! Of course cheaper parts can be found, but that’s usually what you get… cheap parts.
We DO NOT and WILL NOT sell imported fiberglass parts and try to pass it as ASSEMBLED IN AMERICA so we can make a larger profit.
WE BUILD EVERYTHING WE SELL AND SELL EVERYTHING WE BUILD!
Here, MADE IN AMERICA means something! Honestly, you can’t ask for more than a Quality hand built American made part.
Thank you for your time in checking out our site.

- ALL parts are hand built to insure quality resin to glass ratio, consistence in laminate thickness. (NO CHOPPER GUNS)
- All parts are made with a soft sanding gray gelcoat. This is to reduce the prep time at the body shop which equals less money spent.
- All parts are left in the mold for a minimum of 24 hours to insure the resin cure cycle is achieved before parting the part from the mold which ensures that the part will not change its shape.
- Every part goes through a Quality Control process to check for any air voids or any other defects which equals repair eliminated on the customers end and less money spent in prep time.
- All sub assembled parts (hoods) are jig fitted while bonding to insure a proper fit.
- All hardware used in our facility are machined and tapped plates at a machine shop out of ¼ steel plates to insure your hardware has the quality products that you do not see. (No speed nuts imbedded in bondo)
- We put a great deal effort to supply a great fitting product, but you should always PREFIT all parts before painting
Yes, there are less expensive products to purchase but remember, the $30.00 price difference you may be saving may not be justified when the prep time at the body shop is 2 hours @ $75.00 an hour due to an improper fitting part.
