Founded in 1957, we are the oldest car parts supplier in Northamptonshire.

Our mission at Parrs Motor Spares is to supply high quality automotive parts and accessories with service and support exceeding our customers’ expectations.

Our History

Founded in 1957 by Frank Fleet, Parrs quickly became 'the place' to buy car parts and car service items. Morris Minors, Ford Zodiac and Vauxhall Velox were the popular vehicles back then. Staff knowledge and customer service were soon to become invaluable to those enthusiasts who carried out repairs on their own vehicles.

Over the years cars have changed, so too has the staff at Parrs. Frank retired in 1985 and Alan Wigg seeing the potential for further development bought the thriving business. Alan began van deliveries to local garages and service centres, something that Parrs still does today. Alan realised that Parrs had outgrown the shop on St. James Road and moved to bigger premises in 2003. More space enabled the stock ranges to increase including the addition of Catalytic Converters and a huge range of engine management parts.

We are proud of our more than 60 year history and believe our experience is why we can now provide unparalleled levels of customer service to hundreds of private and trade customers.


For over a decade, there has only been one automotive parts supplier in Northamptonshire that we’ve been able to truly rely on, and that is Parrs Motor Spares Ltd.
