Edelbrock Corporation

It was through the work of one name to which many in the automotive performance industry owe a great debt, and that name is Edelbrock.

In 1938, Vic Edelbrock Sr. bought his first project car… a 1932 Ford Roadster. He joined with Tommy Thickstun to design the “Thickstun” manifold for the flathead, and when Vic wasn’t happy with the performance, he designed his own aluminum intake manifold, the “Slingshot”. The 180° manifold used two Stromberg 97 carburetors and was the first product to feature the famous “EDELBROCK” name. Before the war, about 100 of these manifolds were produced. Vic raced and tested his Slingshot on his ’32 Ford at Muroc Dry Lake, 80 miles northeast of LA (where Edwards Air Force base is today). The roadster became an important part of Vic’s product development.

“Proven Performance” is the philosophy that began with Vic Sr. in 1938 and it continues today with the same high standards of performance and quality.
