Classic VW, Dune, and Street Buggy Parts Supplier Shop

Chirco History

Joe Chirco has been a Volkswagen fan since his early teens. While still in high school, Joe started selling VW parts at weekend swap meets in Tucson, Arizona as early as 1979.

In his spare time he would drive to Los Angeles and meet with parts vendors, purchase parts, and return home to pass on the great deals to local VW addicts.

In 1984 his business had grown to the point where a work location and warehousing was needed. Thus the birth of Chirco Automotive, Inc., which includes a 6 bay Service Department at 9101 East 22nd Street in Tucson.

Since then, Chirco Automotive has relied heavily on walk-in trade. Business boomed when Chirco began advertising in 1990 through several national VW and Offroad related magazines. The birth of the Chirco mail order department was celebrated as a result of well designed display ads and great deals, making the name Chirco nationally known.

In early 1998 Chirco launched its first website, www.chirco.com. While only listing a minimum of Chirco’s inventory, the website has attracted parts buyers and VW owners from around the globe….. even the motherland, Germany. Chirco is now known worldwide as a shipper of quality Performance, Restoration, and Custom parts for VWs, Buggies, and Sandrails. With the aid of “in house” UPS shipping, Chirco has become a stream-lined and customer oriented organization with the most efficient shipping system available for speedy deliveries. A far cry from the good ole days at the swap meet.

Over the years Joe has not only offered the best that VW parts vendors have to offer, but he’s also developed a large private label of manufactured products for you to choose from.

Joe’s commitment to you is to provide the best selection of top-quality products from major suppliers such as EMPI products, Latest Rage parts and accessories, VDO Gauges, CNC Pedals, Engle racing cams, Scat VW racing products, as well as directly imported VW parts from around the world at the most competitive prices with the best possible customer service. Our staff is committed to serving you Monday through Saturday to help answer that hard-to-answer question or to place an order for the parts you need.
