eBay Motors Kicks Off Its Inaugural “New York Auto Parts Show” To Meet The Demands Of A Strained Market – PR Newswire

April 14, 2022 by No Comments

While the floor of the New York Auto Show is filled with brand new models and Concept Cars, these vehicles are often impossible for most people to access – let alone drive every day. So in a timely twist, eBay Motors is showcasing the clever ways enthusiasts are using parts and accessories to make and maintain their dream cars. The Re-Concept Cars exhibition celebrates innovative ideas and designs from top auto builders and DIY customizers, including actress Sydney Sweeney

“Since buying my Ford Bronco last February, I’ve done everything from rebuilding the transmission, to wire brushing out rust,” said Sydney Sweeney. “It’s really important to me to preserve the integrity of the original Ford build, so when I need a rare part – like a unique transmission adaptor that is next-to-impossible to come by – eBay Motors is always my first stop.”

In recent years, both the average car age and average mileage have significantly increased, as new cars are harder to come by and consumers opt to stretch the life of their current vehicles. And since last summer, “project car” sales on eBay Motors have grown 158% – with more people taking on true fixer-uppers. 

“Supply chain challenges are impacting everyone – professional mechanics, DIY enthusiasts, daily commuters – and that’s leading to some really innovative solutions,” said Ron Jaiven, GM of Parts & Accessories, eBay Motors. “eBay Motors has long been the place for enthusiasts to discover hard-to-find parts and accessories needed to build, fix, or maintain virtually any car. The New York Auto Parts Show is highlighting just how much is possible when it comes to giving an existing car a new life.”

Held at the iconic Classic Car Club of Manhattan, the show is part education and part inspiration. Attendees can explore in detail each of the “Re-Concept Cars,” speak with the builders themselves, and learn more about how the right part can be a game-changer when it comes to starting – or finishing – a project. Those not in NYC can access behind-the-scenes content and DIY tips on @eBayMotors and at eBay.com/autopartsshow

The Builders

  • The New Throwback | Sydney Sweeney (1969 Ford Bronco) – Sweeney surprised everyone after a TikTok video of her working on her beloved vintage Bronco went viral earlier this year. She has partnered with eBay Motors to complete her rebuild and display it at the New York Auto Parts Show.
  • The Family Muscle Car | Freddy “Tavarish” Hernandez (Chrysler Pacifica) – Hernandez is working with eBay Motors to drop a Hellcat engine into a Chrysler Pacifica (minivan) – an insane upgrade that will get the DIY auto community talking. 

“I’ve never bought a new car in my life and I don’t plan to start now,” said Freddy Hernandez. “eBay Motors is my go to when I need to find a part to keep any of my many projects running like the day they were bought, even the ones that are more than 30 years old.”
