  • Bud Needs a Carb

    Hey guy's Bud needs a new carb, But rather than replace the old 2 barrel, I want to go with a 4 bbl I really need a 57-59 wcfb truck model in any condition. I have a guy in Alberta CA that restores them beautifly, as long as the main shaft is free and the housing is good.

    I just bought him a what I thought was a 63-64 studebaker AFB and intake man. But turned out to be a wcfb intake man. that had been ground out to fit a 65' Pontiac AFB that is so badly corroded it connot be fixed. I bought it thinking the carb was a parts carb, but thought it was a 63-64 intake. Oh well.


    If you have a late 50's wcfb let me know if it's for sale. I'd prefer a truck model, but a car model will do for now. Does anybody even know what the difference is?

    I traded T-Bow two truck WCFB cores a while back. I know he has them restored and on the shelf. He does a REALLY nice job with them. You can probably buy one outright for less than the cost of a core and a restoration by your guy.

          Thanks Allan & Leonard, He had a 57' "truck" WCFB waiting and ready to go, so it's now on it's way home for Bud.
