single barrel carb
Posted by bowtiefan on Sunday, April 16, 2017 9:57 PM

Does anyone make a single barrel carb that I can use on my 235 Chevy 6 cyl in my '57 Chevy.  Most any downdraft will work as I'm not that picky, but nearly all kits come with 4bbl.  I'd really rather not buy a whole kit just for the carb.  1/24 or 1/25.

thanks

The only kit I know of offhand that has single barrel carburators are the '65 and up Corvair kits as those engines used single barrel carbs or the turbo charger. I owned the '64 Corsa 1:1 with the four carbs which I rebuilt and modified. The car also had a 4-spd and posi.

AMT's '60 Chevy Custom Fleetside kit has a straight six engine in it.

The 6 cyl engine is a resin piece from Model Car World.  It's newer than my 57, but with a little modification, it is working out fine.  I just need a carburator.

Did you find a carb yet? If not send me a PM with your address. I have something here that might work.
