    Hey guys, I'm new to this site. A buddy of mine referred me here (still cant find him on here, his name is Jerry with a 55? Oldsmobile) Any way, I'd figure I'd show you guys what I'm working on and some details. I bought and am currently working on this car for my wife. This is her first old car (she was into Hondas when we met but I'm slowly changing her around for the good) She said the only way she would own a old car is if it had fins. Well when I stumbled upon this car I knew it'd be perfect. Its a 1960 Biscayne with the original 235 inline six and 3 on the tree. Nothing fast but makes a awesome cruiser. Its all original other than being bagged on all four corners and having true dual Lake Pipes. It has 74k original miles. Maybe next summer I'll build up the six (wanna be different. Anyone can swap in a v8) But I think I'm gonna leave like this for now and just drive it this summer and hit up the Jalopy Showdown in May for my first time. Well thanks for looking.

    Welcome to the HAMB. I grew up on the Eastern Shore.

    I got a buddy running a 235 in his 50. I found a vintage Fenton dual carb intake up here on CL that he picked up and seems to be happy with. They're out there, so keep your eyes peeled! They also seem to make new ones still/again. there's a bunch of them on eBay, some with matching headers. Offenhauser has a triple single intake and headers too. I think Clifford makes a 4bbl manifold as well. I think all of those companies have valve covers and other cast parts for that engine. You can definitely get more grunt out of that 6 and you'll enjoy the challenge!

    Yeah, Mine has chrome valve cover and air cleaner. Gonna get the side covers and I've been looking at the triple 1 barrels.....kinda expensive. I dont want to do just 1 carb like a 4 barrel. I want the "Wow factor" lol

    Jerry is a nice guy. I've known him for quite some time. Him and my father used to talk at shows when he was driving his wifes purple and white '55. He's always talked to me when I ran into him somewhere. Yes Jerry, you most definitely will see me on the blvd and at the cruise ins........is Kenny with the '37 on here?

    Pop on to the Google and plug this in:
    chevy 235 triple carb site:www.jalopyjournal.com

    It'll bring up a ton of HAMB threads on hopping up your 235. As triple carb setups go, they're not too terribly bad pricewise for your engine and there's a few options out there.

    Yes, he is. I hope this summer since I have something I can take to the shows that we can go to shows together and do some cruising........He announces the local parade and last year I had my car in it and he gave me a awesome introduction lol

    Do you have any aftermarket parts on your 235?

    Ok, thanks. I'll have to check that out

    Dang! Don't know who you guys got me confused with, but thanks for the kind words!

    I too have met online and in person the nicest people you could hope to that are HAMBERS.............

    Won't say you'll never see any drama, that's life. But surely, the HAMB is the place to make life long hot rod friends!
