  • When winter makes you fidgety....

    Could not help myself - needed something to do. So I replaced the four barrel WCFB in my '55 Studillac with a '59 Eldorado tri-power setup. Fun project, but can be expensive. Entire setups with "good" original carbs run around $1500 to $4000. Non-rebuilt end carbs alone can go for $500 each! However, aftermarket conversion
    parts and kits can get you a nice end carb built for about $250, and a lot of it is new! Whole project cost about $850.

    A lot of us in the northern hemisphere have cabin fever about now. Your set up looks good.
