Carter wa1 to replace b&b


Recommended Posts

Nice looking car.  Looks like the similar 217CID? engine Graham used in 38, my guess is custom intake manifold?  dual instead of single downdraft carburetor?  Too bad he don't have a Graham Supercharger he would be set...fuel mileage was a big deal in 1938 gas prices were crazy high


In the year 1938, the average retail price of gas in the U.S. was $0.20. This is equivalent to $3.49 in 2019 dollars.
