    City: Eldon

    State: Missouri
    Price: $135.
    We are continuing our downsizing. ALL of our core supply MUST go! We are offering cores at wholesale prices

    for a LIMITED time. At the end of that time, regretfully, these cores will be scrapped. This is our "common"

    WCFB inventory. We have anywhere from 1 to 10, at least according to the computer, of each of these. I have

    listed these numerically by tag number, and have included the approximate CFM, and the original application.

    So WHAT is a core?

    For purposes of this sale, a core is a complete, at least externally, carburetor. I will not disassemble the carb.

    What is inside, is what is inside. The choke cover MAY be aftermarket (plain black plastic, no writing). This will definitely be true for Cadillac and Oldsmobile carburetors. The throttle shaft(s) may be stuck, or may not be stuck. Both Cadillac and Oldsmobile used a hokey choke assembly that would make Rube Goldberg blush. Generally, these were removed and replaced with a conventional choke the first time the car was serviced at the selling dealer.

    Price of each core including postage within the USA, is $135. I have not seen these cores in more than 30 years. If you buy one, and I don't think it is rebuildable, I will call, and you will have the option of canceling the sale, or possibly buy the unit as a parts unit at a reduced price.

    This is not an open-ended sale. On the second day of February, 2024, what is left will have the top removed, the floats and metering rods removed, and regretfully be recycled. So far, we have regretfully recycled about 50,000 pounds of carburetors.

    If desired, we can provide rebuilding kits for any of these WCFBs.

    To order, CALL (no PM orders, no email orders) 573-392-7378 (9-12, 1-4 Mon-Tues central time).

    Payment will be via VISA or MasterCard, unless you pick the carb up in person (will reduce the price by $35.), in which case cash will also be acceptable. The Carburetor Shop is located in Eldon, Missouri.

    And I will apologize in advance if the columns don't line up on the table below.

    This ad has expired. Thanks to all who purchased these cores.
    The remainer will be placed, a few at a time on Ebay (at higher prices to compensate for Ebays fees). What doesn't sell will regretfully be recycled.
