San Bernardino, Calif. – Nov 10, 2021 – MBZ Parts, a fast-growing startup selling classic Mercedes-Benz parts, recently launched an investment crowdfunding campaign on the WeFunder platform. The company plans to use the raise to expand its physical infrastructure and conclude development of its custom digital catalog, enabling owners to complete their restoration and ensuring a future for classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Founded in 2020, MBZ Parts sells new, used, and rebuilt parts for all models of classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles via its modern, user-friendly ecommerce site. In addition to searching for specific parts, users who may not know what they’re looking for can browse by model, exploring available parts by such categories as transmission, interior, engine & fuel, and more. The company owns approximately $2M worth of inventory and is constantly working to locate new sources for parts.
“Before we built our site,” says founder and CEO Sheila Heaney, “classic Benz owners had to spend hours searching online, calling around to junkyards and dealerships and speaking to people who may never have heard of their car. Now they can go to MBZParts.com and get everything on their list.”
The market for classic Mercedes-Benz parts is significant, with $800 million spent globally each year. With each passing year, increasing numbers of classic Mercedes vehicles shift from being driven daily and maintained by DIY owners to facing complete restoration. Many classic Mercedes-Benz owners express a desire to keep their vehicles road ready for decades, passing them along to future generations. “These are more than just cars,” says Heaney. “They’re family heirlooms with tremendous sentimental significance. And access to parts is a lifeline for these vehicles.”
The classic Mercedes-Benz parts industry has, prior to the founding of MBZ Parts, been a fragmented field that struggled to keep up with 21st-century technology. Many parts purveyors specialize in certain models, or they only provide parts for a few model years. And without a functional ecommerce site, even those limited parts inventories were inaccessible to all but local customers. With its website providing access to parts from all vintage Mercedes-Benz models from the ’50s through the early ’90s, MBZ Parts makes it easy for owners to continue restoring their vehicles.
