Better post the Chevelle too, being that this IS a picture thread.

You should be able to find some carbs for that pretty easily I would think. Are you looking for an Offy setup? Or can you make due with just the stock one carb to get it running?

the first car i ever drove when i got my license that my father i switched between, the 1961 Ford Fairlane and the 1966 Ford F100. both my father inherited when my grandfather passed away.

the first car i bought, Bucaneer red 1978 Trans Am. that one earned me a few days in traffic court!

my dream car, a 1973 SD 455 Trans Am in Bucaneer red. i like red vehicles!

It has a Offenhauser intake, I need three Stromburg 97's. The Old Holleys wont fit on the intake, their too big...
I can find the carbs, just cant afford them right now. They run about $500 each.

I am having trouble finding the progressive linkage for the carbs though.

Hmm. I might have one Stromberg, but not three. if I find three of them will you trade the Medusa for them?

The progressive linkage might be more difficult.

I actually know a few Ford guys who probably have what you need. If I remember I will ask them next time I see them. Those were the same setup for what, '38 through '41?
