SBC 2-barrel intake and Rochester 2GC
Posted by robertnfrappuls on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 11:31 PM

Do any Chevy/GMC kits come with a 2-barrel intake manifold and a Rochester 2 barrel carb?

 

Any aftermarket resins?

I know it is a stretch but many of the early Pontiac kits have three-deuce setups that could be cut apart to make individual two-barrel carbs.  I don't know how much trouble it would be to modify a four-barrel manifold into a two-barrel, but it could be done.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Check the AMT 55 Chevy Cameo and other versions of the pickup kit, it has the 2bbl and intake and is about as close as I can think of.  The old revell tri-5 kits had them also but look a bit small to me.  give em a look.

Any chance the 55 Stepside has the same?

The stepside kit I once had was a street machine version #6004 from 1991 and I do not recall if the stock intake and carb was in the kit.  I dont think you could build that one stock, only street machine version.  If there was a later version, the stock parts might be included.  Maybe someone on the forum can add to that information.  There were two Cameo kits that I remember, a '55 and '57 that contained the parts you want.

The plan is to build a stepside with stock engine, but I was trying to avoid buying both kits.
