  2. A primary chevy wcfb for a 57 Corvette dual quad setup that does not cost an arm and a leg. Scored a intake and secondary carb a couple years ago, but missing the primary. Cannot find a suitable carb to put the setup together to put in my 33 pickup.

    Back when I was dirt tracking and was much younger and dumber, that was about the first thing that got thrown in the scrap metal pile. When I was looking for one for for my 55 Sedan Delivery, I found out just exactly how much money I'd thrown away over the years. Good luck with your search and if I find one, I'll snag it for you.

    Is the primary different than a single WCFB?

  6. technically yes they are different, but you can make a single 4 carb work with the duals, I am being a little picky to have at least the same year carb to go with the secondary carb. Big thing is that its a Chevy carb, I bought a wcfb off a desoto and yeah not the same at all.

  8. thats a later carb, the fuel inlet is larger on the later carbs with the fitting screwed in,
    this is the correct fuel inlet for a 57

    I bought my 1948 Austin A40 Dorset back in 1977. I started working on it but put it in storage after a couple of years. About 4 years ago I took it out of storage and started working on it again. In 1978 I had taken the driver's chrome door trim off as I was planning on sanding the door and primer it. That door trim has been missing since 1978. The Dorset is a 2-door and much rarer than a Devon 4-door and I have been looking for a replacement door trim for 42 years with no luck. Last summer I was looking for something in my dad's garage and I found the missing door trim under a pile of unrelated parts on a shelf!

    I bought this cool piece of1942 Ford trunk bezel trim for my 47, but apparently, there is a size and shape difference between the standard trunk lever bezel and the one that fits this trim.

  19. Have you ever checked these guy's out?, I know it's a reproduction but hard to bet the price and have one that is cast from the original piece. HRP

    No problem finding the elusive parts I'd love to have for a couple builds. The problem is coughing up the money needed to pay for them!
     
  21. A set of mickey thompson super scavanger headers. They were orange with a long square collector. I need them for a big block chevy for a serious day two build.
     
  22. Everyone wants to buy reasonable, but do you sell the unattainable parts you have reasonable ?
     
  23. A Fordomatic shift column with shift detent thats not worn completely out... ..I've bought five and not one of them is useable..

    I think most of us are looking to be in the right place at the right time. But to answer your question, I never knew I had an unattainable part until after I sold it or gave it away. Lol.
     
  25. The little clips that holds the rubber that shields the rear license plate light on a 53 Mainline. Have two, need 5.

    Thanks, Hrp for response. I have seen that piece but not sure how to make it blend in with the rest of original pieces
