There is what looks like a fairly nice '55 President Coupe on Ebay. The engine bay shows a 2-bbl WW carb. Weren't ALL C/K trim '55's equipped with a 4-bbl WCFB~??????

You're right!....A '55 President (any series) should have a WCFB Carter four barrel carb.

No, not all '55 C-body and K-body cars would have had a 4 barrel. Some would have been 2 barrel V8s, and some were Champions with 6 cylinder engines.

Well NOW we have to weed out the "COMMANDER" fly stuff out of Pepper!

Commanders: YES, 2 Barrels.
Presidents: NO, 2 Barrels!
