In the early 1930s Vic Edelbrock Sr. established his first garage business in Beverly Hills. As a project he bought a 1932 Ford Roadster and developed his own aluminium intake manifold called the 'Slingshot'. It was the very first product of the famous Edelbrock brand. The Roadster became an important part of product development and the garage business became more of a performance parts shop.
After the Second World War in 1946, the first performance parts catalogue "Edelbrock Power and Speed Equipment" was published, containing cylinder heads, intake manifolds, pistons and connecting rods. Up to the early 1960s the company grew rapidly, made its name in racing, and developed outstanding performance parts for small-block Chevrolet engines among others.
In 1962 the company was taken over by Vic Edelbrock Jr. who developed the company into a global performance parts specialist with an extremely wide product range. Edelbrock can therefore justifiably be called one of the most respected manufacturers of performance engine components.
