Edelbrock began in 1938 after Vic, Sr. had opened his first automotive shop, purchased his first project car, and designed his first intake manifold for that 1932 Ford Roadster. From there, that '32 Ford began being the tester for many of Edelbrock's future parts, including that first intake manifold, cylinder heads, pistons, crankshafts and steering wheels. Eventually, Edelbrock
transitioned his repair business into a parts business, as his parts became more and more popular. Shortly after, in 1946, he created his first catalog.
Edelbrock's business quickly grew and he opened his first purpose built shop in 1949 and was able to expand his business by designing more cylinder heads, intake manifolds, and pistons for many different applications. He also installed one of the industry's first engine dynos in 1948, so he could gauge the effectiveness of his products. Throughout the next decade, Vic, Sr. continued to expand his business with much larger product lines and greater influence in racing until his untimely passing in 1962. Soon after, Vic, Jr. took over the business and maintained the traditions that his father had begun.
Since then, Edelbrock has continued to expand and improve. The company is headquartered near Los Angeles
and now boasts seven locations in California
, over 500,000 square feet of space, and dozens of new products across many Ford, GM and other model lines. CJ Pony Parts sells over 200 different Edelbrock products, including:
