Total Cost Involved TCI 45th Year Legacy

Engineering the Perfect Classic Ride for 45 Years

Ontario, CA — Total Cost Involved Engineering announces its 45th Anniversary celebration. In 1974, Ed Moss, Founder and President of Total Cost Involved Engineering, turned his passion into a thriving Classic Car restoration business. It all started with a first of its kind, a chassis for a Ford Model “A”, turning a much weaker frame into a more solid foundation for drivability and safety. It quickly became the best chassis and suspension available for the Model ‘A’ in the marketplace, setting a design standard and trademark for excellence in engineering and workmanship… a tradition that lives on today.

“I’m so proud of our technical sales advisors, engineers, welders and machinists, many of whom have worked with us for 20 years or more… they truly are experts, and they know the importance of what quality engineering means to each customer they serve.” said Ed Moss, Founder and President of Total Cost Involved Engineering, Inc.

After 45 years, the company has broadened its mix of chassis and suspension products for treet Rodders, Hot Rodders, Truck and Muscle Car enthusiasts, nationwide. Through our modernized, 32,000 square foot facility, we have satisfied thousands of customers and projects over the years, and successfully tested many of their products for drivability and performance on challenging tracks around the country.

“We made a promise at our founding: To partner with each customer to help them build the perfect ride, each time. Comfort, performance and safety is at the heart of every part we manufacture —always has been, always will be—that’s our promise to our customers, and to ourselves, ” Mr. Moss said.

Total Cost Involved Engineering takes quality very seriously; we’ve earned numerous design and track performance awards over the years, including the coveted “Manufacturer of the Year” Award from SEMA-SRMA. Which is why the company offers the best Warranty in the classic car and truck restoration industry: A 6 year – 60,000 mile Warranty on wear and tear items, plus a Lifetime Warranty on any part they manufacture in-house.We strongly feel that quality doesn’t cost, it pays real dividends for all.

“My warmest congratulations to TCI Engineering for 45 years… I’m not surprised at all that they’ve succeeded so well for so long… I am very proud that TCI is a key part of my team… their chassis design was innovative, and they’re always committed to my success…,” says Brad Apicella, -Apicella Designs, and see his full testimony on the Total Cost Involved website.
