Web Site:
Carl Haas started his parts business in 1960, filling a need for quality race cars and parts in the rapidly growing professional and amateur racing industry. Since the very beginning the companyʼs goal has been to deliver nothing but the best for its customers. Haas introduced a revolutionary program called the Haas FAS-PAC service, which guaranteed delivery of parts in less than 24 hours anywhere in the United States long before any of the express delivery companies were in operation. Haas also did the unheard of and started taking used race cars as trade-ins on new cars. These two programs helped the racing industry grow immensely in the ʻ60s and ʻ70s. Carl Haas Automobile Imports still strives to deliver the same quality parts and service, be it a single part for a club racer or a complete trackside parts program for an entire series.
