Founded in 1985 by two friends and their passion for cool cars to drive to school, CJ Pony Parts is, at its roots, about the love of the automotive restoration and performance hobby.

CJ Pony Parts has always remained inside the Central Pennsylvania area. Since our humble beginnings in a 10’ x 10’ barn space, CJ Pony Parts has continued to change location as more space was needed to house more parts and employees. Our current location at 7461 Allentown Boulevard, in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, is actually a combination of our most recent two buildings. Our 19,000 square foot facility was the original building on the property in 1999, and housed our entire company until late 2007, when our current 44,000 square foot building was constructed next door. Today, we operate out of both buildings, utilizing all the available space for our growing inventory and staff. We keep it all close by, housing our entire call-center and marketing staff on-site, as well as a video studio, photography studio and fully functional automotive service garage.
