Hanging with Vic Edelbrock


I had the good fortune to do several magazine stories with Vic Edelbrock over the years. Vic is a straight shooter with a keen sense of humor. On this visit, I was interviewing Vic about his company’s role in the manufacture of the 440 Six Pack intake manifold of 1969-early 1970. Behind us is the very same 1969-1/2 440 Six Pack Super Bee Vic bought as a new car direct from Chrysler. He drove it for a few months then handed it over to Jim McFarland who did some R&D work with it. It was sold off in the mid-Seventies but a sense of nostalgia led Vic to track it down and have it restored recently. It has become a permanent part of the well known Edelbrock collection.
