Built For Enthusiasts By Enthusiasts!

Lakewood Industries Built For Enthusiasts, By Enthusiasts!

Safety has been Lakewood’s number 1 priority from the day legendary Top Fuel racer and chassis builder “Gentleman Joe” Schubeck formed the company just outside Cleveland in Lakewood, Ohio. From those earliest days in the mid-1960s right through today, Lakewood, now part of Holley Performance, has designed and manufactured the finest bellhousings, suspension components, and chassis components available. The same exhaustive research and comprehensive testing that goes into their industry-leading bellhousings is built into every drag shock, traction bar, driveshaft loop, and chassis component they build.

Customer service is priority one, and with over 50,000 square feet of finished products in inventory, Lakewood Industries can meet your needs with fast and accurate shipping

At the heart of Lakewood is an impressive list of resources including sophisticated CAD software, CNC machining, in house chassis dyno, and a fleet of test vehicles including a 2010 Camaro, 2010 Mustang, and 2010 Challenger. Most important of all, however, is a staff of talented engineers with real experience not only in the lab, but on the track as well. They are fortunate to be located near 4 different sanctioned quarter mile facilities, and they prove the value and performance of their products from the burnout box to the big end. Lakewood Industries is proud to be a company for enthusiasts by enthusiasts

Lakewood Industries is proud to manufacture products in the USA with experienced craftsmen. This in-house production and skill is what allows Lakewood to offer custom products built to your specifications. Specialty bellhousings can be built to your order in 2 – 4 weeks.

A S.F.I. approved safety bellhousing is required for vehicles running 11.49 seconds or quicker in quarter mile competition. Lakewood Industries has been providing racers a safer solution to weak cast bellhousings for over 40 years. Lakewood Bellhousings are built in the USA from high strength; hydro formed, and stress relieved steel to ensure uniform wall thickness. They are precision machined and Blanchard ground to tight tolerances for maximum bolt and bore alignment. All Lakewood safety bellhousings are heat treated for added strength and certified to SFI 6.1W specifications. 

Lakewood bellhousings still offer these industry leading features:

  • Direct fit engineering ensures easy installation for popular passenger cars
  • MIG welded thread inserts for transmission mounting, clutch fork pivot ball, and linkage brackets where applicable
  • Durable powder coated finish for years of corrosion free service
  • Included block plate and grade 8 hardware
  • Approved by all major sanctioning bodies
