H&H Flatheads this year marks its 15-year anniversary as a specialist in rebuilding, hot rodding and supplying parts for the flathead Ford V-8 engines. The company has completed engine rebuilds for customers such as Ray Evernham and Chip Foose.
The company is celebrating its 15 years in business with a T-shirt designed by Alex Maldonado/Transmission77. It is available only in black in a traditional fit and features a large 15th anniversary logo on the back and a smaller logo on the chest.
Mike Herman’s father Max Herman, Sr., started a business at H&H Flatheads’ current location in 1972, rebuilding Ford Model T, A, B and flathead V-8s. Mike Herman at the age of 25 took over the V-8 operation in 2003, after graduating from Colorado Mesa University.
H&H Flatheads acquired Barney Navarro’s speed equipment line—consisting of cast aluminum cylinder heads, intakes and various accessories—in 2007. Other acquisitions by the company since include Sharp, Austin, and most recently Wilson & Woods and Dixon SOHV heads.
“We've specialized in the flathead for 15 years and we've supplied something like 1,500 engines,” Herman said. “However, we also rebuild other classic engines including flathead Lincoln V-8s and V-12s. With a full machine shop, we can pretty much tackle anything.”
