To The Victors... This year marks a major milestone for Edelbrock, as the iconic company celebrates its 75th anniversary with special events and promotions throughout 2013.

Among them is a Mustang Giveaway, wherein one lucky winner will receive a 2013 edition of the pony car featuring Edelbrock and Ford Racing Performance upgrades.
