Since the very early 1950s, B&M has been one of the leading innovators in the automotive industry. As Racers themselves, B&M?s founders identified the needs of local racers and street performance enthusiasts, and developed products to fill those needs. As the industry grew so did B&M. And as racers went faster, B&M developed products to help them break the records they just set.
In the 50s it was B&M who came up with the idea of using a performance reinforced Hydramatic for racing. In the 60s it was B&M who developed shifters to go along with it, and later in the decade came race converters. In the 70s, B&M introduced shift and transmission improving kits ? always the constantly refining and expanding existing product lines.
If you?ve ever raced a vehicle, or driven a hot rod with an automatic transmission, high stall torque converter, an aftermarket automatic shifter, or performance enhancing shifting kit, thank B&M. From Trick Shift performance ATF to reverse pattern valve bodies, 1.80 gear sets to cool canisters, the list of firsts goes on and on?
