Moss Motors Company History Timeline

1948

Since its start in 1948, and still today, Moss Motors is a company run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.

If way back in 1948 Al Moss had bought a Ford instead of an MG TC, things might have turned out very differently.

Al became an avid TC enthusiast, and after reading about the successful road rallies being held on the East Coast, in the summer of 1948 he decided to organize one himself.

1977

In 1977, Al purchased 48 tons of 'obsolete' inventory directly from Standard Triumph in England, a shipment which filled no less than four 40ft containers, and was in fact, the largest single buyout of TR2-3-4 spares ever.

By 1977, Moss Motors was established as an industry leader.

1982

In 1982, Howard Goldman opened a retail car dealership, Moss Jaguar, in downtown Santa Barbara.

1983

In 1983, Moss acquired a company called Start Your Engines in Beltsville, MD. Start Your Engines was one of the pioneering Triumph parts and restoration specialists.

1985

In 1985, Moss purchased a wholesale automotive supplier, eventually known as CARS.

1988

By 1988, Moss Motors was the largest supplier of vintage British sports car spares.

1989

Once again opportunity knocked and in 1989 Moss Jaguar was sold to help fund the acquisition of Classic British Sportscar Spares.

Also in 1989, the Nisonger Corporation was purchased by the Milard Group, as the holding company for the various companies within Moss was known.

1993

The transatlantic connection worked well, but early in 1993 a strategic decision was made to sell the European operation to Ingham PLC, a public textile and motor parts company.

1994

In 1994 an experiment in diversification led to our highly successful Mazda Miata accessories program.

1998

In late 1998 Howard decided it was time to step aside and leave the next generation of growth to a new team.

2006

By the end of 2006, the New Jersey facility had long since outgrown its available space.

2017

In 2017 Moss Motors purchased the classic Jaguar specialist XKs Unlimited.

2020

And then, in 2020, another opportunity presented itself within our industry Long Motor Corp. decided to focus on its truck parts business and close the doors of Victoria British Ltd., its classic British car parts division.
