Currie Enterprises's picture

Frank Currie began designing and building differentials for material-handling equipment back in 1959. He worked out of his garage fabricating and assembling rearends for personnel carriers, electric carts, tugs, scissor lifts and other specialty vehicles. By 1964 the Currie manufacturing facility moved to a 5,000-square-foot building in Placentia, California. Frank's three sons Charlie, John, and Raymond entered the family business full-time in the late 1970's. They also decided to turn their off-road hobby into a family business and began developing superior aftermarket rearends for Jeeps.

In the late 1970's, the Currie's began building performance rearends for V8 conversions in Chevy Vegas, and mini trucks like the Chevy Luv, Ford Courier, and Toyota Hi-Lux models. Currie Enterprises hooked up with chassis shops in the early 1980's and designed and produced 9" rearends (based on the Ford 9") for kit cars and street rods. The popularity of the Currie Rearend grew and the enterprise expanded to a larger 7,000-square-foot facility. In 1984, the Currie product line expanded, and they moved to an 11,000-square-foot plant which included state-of-the-art cleaning and tear down capabilities for rearends.
