When we tried to find parts for our first Corvette-a
1969 Lemans Blue Convertible, we became a little frustrated.
Not only were a lot of the parts unavailable, but those that
were available were very expensive. In the late 70's and
early 80's, there were only a few Corvette parts suppliers,
so the competition was very relaxed. We decided then that we
would start supplying some local friends and Corvette clubs
with the parts they needed, only as a hobby. But like many
hobbies, it turned into a full-time job, and in 1983 "Rik's
Corvette Shoppe" was officially established. We hit the car
show circuit every weekend, and restored Corvettes & sold
parts during the week. Because of health reasons (breathing
paint & fiberglass dust wasn't fun) we quit the restoration
business around 1990, and decided to concentrate strictly on
parts sales only-and the rest is history!
as "Rik's Corvette Parts LLC", Rik's is devoted to selling
quality parts at competitive prices.
We offer Fast, Friendly
Service with shipping daily. Rik's is not some
"fly-by-night" company that is here today and gone tomorrow.
We are here to stay to help you now and in the future. We
stock almost all of the parts in our catalog or can have
them drop-shipped to you direct from the manufacturer to
ensure quick delivery. We only sell first quality parts-not
seconds or blems. We only sell 63-82 Parts, and most of our
sales are to customers who actually drive their car-not
necessarily every day, but for the Corvette Owner who truly
enjoys his car. We know Corvettes, and Corvette parts. When
you call us during our business hours, you will be talking
to someone who knows the parts, and we can assist you with
There are a lot of people or so-called
businesses these days, who sells parts on-line, but some
don't know the difference between a 1963 shifter plate and a
1982 shifter plate. Some don't even have an address, only a
PO box! We have been at the same location since 1983. We are
not in "cyber-space", operating only on a web site, like
some others. We are an established, reliable business.
We care and know about your Corvette, and want to do
everything we can to help you make it look great!
