    Guys I lived much of what you see on this thread, and the late 50s and 60s were the greatest.

    Maybe I need some new glasses but those look more like Weber carbs than injection...
     
  7. You're correct George, those are Webers.

    Not quite LB BIG upset Jack beat George then lost to SWC. Montgomery and Merkel had SBC SWC had Hemi. Jack was running the same 364" motor that was in his record setting 39 Willys B/GS car.
