Quote from A Renaissance of Classic Auto Parts Brands :
Thanks to a few imaginative, dedicated entrepreneurs, some of the once ‘lost‘ auto parts brands are being rejuvenated to their former glory. Infamous brands such as King, Sun, and S‐K Tools are among some of this category of lost auto parts brands.
For those familiar with the era of the ’50s and ′60s, you might be aware that dissimilar to the cars of today. Vehicles of these eras weren‵t built with computers to help the mechanism of the ignition process⁏ they implemented a mechanical distributor instead. The distributor‵s key purpose is to locate the most accurate ignition timing for the vehicle in order to exploit the fastest speed and effectiveness.
Halibrand Engineering, established in 1947 by amateur racing driver Ted Halibrand was another classic brand to suffer and then come back from the ground to its former glory. Halibrand’s key selling point was magnesium alloy wheels⁏ these wheels were more durable and lighter than the common wire wheels. Halibrand′s wheels rapidly became favored by many other racers. Sadly the industry moved further towards using aluminum alloy wheels from abroad due to their very reasonable cost. As a result, the company was sold in the late ‵70s. Thankfully in 2003 the brand was rejuvenated and took on the new name of Halibrand Performance and will continue to create the same magnesium wheels it was originally famed for.cars for veterans, antique car insurance, antique auto insurance, classic car insurance companies, collector car insurance
