Some say birthdays are like taxes and death. Inevitable. Unavoidable. But here at Zip, we welcome our birthday because another year older means another year under our belt as a leader in the Corvette Parts industry.
This month, Zip Corvette turns 36 years old. The history of Zip Corvette has all the markings of the American Dream. What began as a part-time hobby in 1977 has grown into a trusted supplier of Corvette parts and accessories to enthusiasts all over the world.
Today, our warehouse includes more than 25,000 of the newest-available and best-quality Corvette parts to be had. Zip’s inventory is showcased in six different, generation-specific catalogs that often find a shelf life right alongside the manuals and guidebooks in a Corvette owner’s garage. From early model restorers to sixth generation racers, fans of America’s Sports Car rely on Zip to keep their beloved Corvettes on the open road.
But we’re much more than some nondescript warehouse shipping auto parts. We’re real people, selling real Corvette parts in real time. Our sales staff boasts more than 100 years of collective Corvette knowledge and we’re always willing to share what we know. If you find yourself neck-deep in a restoration project, not knowing what your next step should be, pick up the phone and call us. We can answer your questions. We can make suggestions. We can share our own Corvette experiences.
And if our sales team can’t answer your questions, there’s someone close by who can. Sales, warehouse, mechanics, tech support, accounting…..we’re all under the same roof. We don’t “farm out” any of our operations. We’ve got the answers you are looking for.
Perhaps we’re most excited about embracing this birthday because we know what the year ahead holds. In just a few short weeks, a C7 Corvette Stingray will roll into our showroom and then the real fun begins. Our tech team and purchasing departments will be hard at work, making sure we can make available to you the best parts and accessories for this newest Corvette generation.
Thirty six years ago, Zip was born because one man needed some Corvette parts and set out to build them himself. As we look back, we are thankful for our progress and growth. As we look forward, we are committed to many more years of meeting your Corvette needs.
In lieu of a birthday cake, we have decided to serve up our company video. It gives you an inside look at Zip Corvette – who we are and what we do. If you are a long time customer, perhaps you’ll be able to finally put some faces to the names you have known and trusted over the years. If you are new to Zip, we hope you’ll find many reasons to give us a try.
We know Corvettes. We know Corvette Parts. Zip: Corvettes are all we do.
