Once upon a time, there was a quiet, unassuming 1962 Ford Galaxie 500.
Then, Bob Tasca, Sr. got a hold of it.
And the rest is history.
Known as the birthplace of the Cobra Jet, Thunderbolt, Tasca Street Boss, and the Mystery race cars, Tasca has a well-established legacy of designing and developing high-performance cars.
Starting in the 1960s, with the initial decision to modify a 1962 406ci Galaxie, the Tasca Automotive Group has long been a serious contender in the world of drag racing and high-performance vehicles, specifically Fords.
The founder of Tasca, Bob Tasca, Sr. – an established drag racing enthusiast and sponsor – was instrumental in the development of super-charged Fords, like the Ford Thunderbolt and the famous 428 Cobra Jet. He also managed to lure the NHRA Funny Car champion driver John Force away from GM to race for Ford – a huge move both for Tasca and for Ford.
In 2007, the Tasca Mod Shop became the first factory-authorized Shelby mod shop in the world. Carroll Shelby, the founder of Shelby Automobiles, and Bob Tasca, Sr. joined forces with the explicit goal of offering high-performance versions of current generation Shelby and Ford Mustangs. In fact, Tasca’s Mod Shop is one of the few places in the country authorized by Shelby to perform the upgrades to change Mustangs into Shelby Super Snakes.
