Harrop Engineering

Harrop Engineering



In 1963, Len and Elsa's son, Ron, joined the business after completing a boilermaking apprenticeship. Ron's enthusiasm for 'making things' began at an early age. By the age of 10, he was welding together go-karts in the back shed. As a teenager, his passion extended to modifying cars, such as his first MGTC powered Morris Minor, his much-loved Holden EH and his famous FJ. Ron's enhanced FJ quickly became the leader in its class for quarter-mile competitions. Originally bought for $29 from racing identity Norm Beechey, it became known as "Harrop's Howler". Innovative designs combined with on-track success have contributed to a company philosophy and reputation that today see Harrop Engineering held in high regard by the motorsport industry. Harrop is proud to have played a part in the success of racing teams over the past 30 years a tribute to the precision and design of the performance products the company has supported and continues to supply.
