Carb Restortation

Postby Bill G » Sun Jun 19, 2016 4:22 pm

Hey guys, I had a couple of Autolite 4100's restored by Pony Carbs some years ago. Of course, they're now out of business so, I was wondering who is a reputable shop guys are using these days? Thanks so much.

I know Jim Cowles of Shelby Parts and Restorstion n Green Bay, Wisconsin can do it, possibly Fred B. Who posts here does them as well.

What are you needing, just a functional restoration, or as-new cosmetic looking as well ? A lot of people, including me can do a functional restoration, fewer folks do the plating involved in the cosmetic restoration.

It's for a friend's car. 1963 Galaxy, original 427 car with original dual quad Hollys that he wants restored, not just rebuilt. Looking for the right shop for that work. Thanks so much.

Still recommending Jim Cowles as business listed above. I've never heard anyone complain about the quality of his work.
