The original company was formed when brothers George and Earl Holley started the Holley Motor Company in 1899. Together they produced some of the first vehicles such as the Runabout and the Motorette. In 1904 they developed the first original carburettor, nicknamed Iron Pot. This carburettor was used by Oldsmobile in the 'Curved Dash'; the very first car to go into mass production. After this development the Holley brothers started to focus on the production of carburettors. Among their first customers was Henry Ford with the T-Ford.
In the following years the brothers developed and marketed various carburettors in cooperation with companies including Ford. In addition to the production of carburettors, the company also focused on the production and development of ignition systems, fuel pumps and other engine components. Over the years the Holley Company has continued to grow, partly through the acquisition and integration of various other brands.
Holley supplied carburettors to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and almost every NHRA Pro-stock champion for over four decades until those classes switched to electronic fuel injection. Holley now produces and supplies various products for, among others, the popular General Motors LS engine, as well as high-quality fuel pumps, intake manifolds and various other parts for street performance, racing and marine applications. In addition to its own Holley brand the family consists of various brands including Quick Fuel, MSD, NOS, Simpson and Mr. Gasket.
Holley Performance Products produces, among other things, high-quality carburettors, manifolds, superchargers and water pumps. Wilmink Performance now supplies various products from Holley, but also from related brands which fall within the Holley family.
