Carter wa1 to replace b&b

Recommended Posts

Just curious if there's any benefit of replacing my  B&B carburetors on my 38 desoto with a pair of wa1 carbs?I have a set that are brand new

The car is setup with an Edmunds dual carb intake.

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.
