Danchuk Manufacturing ® The leader of the 1955- 1956-1957 Classic Chevy Restoration Industry.
Since 1976, when we turned out our first classic Chevy part, our 1957 parklight lens (Danchuk #494), it has been our policy to find ways to refine and improve our products and services. Danchuk is constantly raising the bar for quality 1955-56-57 classic Chevy restoration parts by manufacturing parts that are superior to both the original parts and all other classic Chevy reproduction parts on the market today. Danchuk takes pride in producing competitively priced, Made in the USA, classic Chevy parts that look better, fit better and last longer. As a result, Danchuk remains the largest manufacturer and distributor of 1955- 1956-1957 classic Chevy restoration and performance parts in the world.
The Danchuk commitment to excellence.
Art and Dan Danchuk say that the biggest influence in a young boy’s life is their father. This statement rings true for the Danchuk boys as both aquired their love for Chevrolets, as well as their afinity for tool and die making, from theirs. The elder Danchuk instilled in his boys his love of auto restoration as well as the notion that in order to be successful in manufacturing you had to produce the finest product possible, regardless of what that product might be. In 1968, Art and Dan Danchuk became partners in Danart Tool and Die, where they manufactured and marketed their own line of surveying equipment. Their commitment to excellence and their combination of knowledge and experience in tool and die and mold making soon allowed them to diversify their business and begin producing tooling for such distinguished clients as General Motors, IBM, Mattel Toys, Cragar Wheels, Xerox, and Teledyne.
The Danchuk’s love of auto restoration promted an entry into the world of classic Chevy reproduction parts in January of 1977. Their initial success with their first part, our 1957 parklight lens, was so overwhelming Art and Dan made the decision to direct all their energy into manufacturing 1955-56-57 classic Chevy reproduction parts exclusively. Danchuk Manufacturing, Inc. has been going strong ever since. Each year we add to the list of “Made in the USA” classic Chevy parts we manufacture and distribute, making our selection of “Made in the USA” classic Chevy restoration and aftermarket parts the most complete in the industry.
