About Us

Manufacturing vintage automotive gaskets is what we do…sealing history!  95% of our products are manufactured in the USA by BESTgasket.  Even though we have been making gaskets for 60 years, perhaps you have never heard of us until now.  Advertising has never been our strength; providing the best gaskets for your vintage ride, is!


BESTgasket was founded in the 1940s by Jack Best, making and selling a full product line of automotive gaskets regionally on the West Coast.  In the 1980s, the company began focusing primarily on gaskets for the vintage market. BESTgasket was purchased by Craig Weaver and Armin Brown in 1996.  At that time, BESTgasket was known as the low price leader in the industry.  Not satisfied, the present owners have charted a new course emphasizing quality. BESTgasket’s products are now second to none, while maintaining our pricing advantage.

HEAD GASKETS are our SPECIALTY.  Our products are not stuck in time, because we are continuously developing new sealing solutions to old problems.  The GraphTitehead gaskets we manufacture in-house are unsurpassed in quality, and every BESTgasket engine kit includes a rear main seal that actually seals!  You will find that our engine rebuilding sets are thoroughly complete, because we understand that a missing gasket could waste a few or more days of valuable shop time. 
We sell through distributors only.  Our distributors tend to be very “hands on” with vintage automobiles, and can therefore provide superior service in helping you make the proper purchase.  Chances are they will also be able to assist you in other areas besides gaskets.  See our where to buy section for a list of distributors.  If your company has interest in reselling our products, click here to find out more about becoming a distributor.
