I've recently acquired a 66 Fastback. It's a near complete Shelby Clone project car. The body is an all metal rebuild with the classic Wimbleton white and Guardsman blue paint job. (Oddly, the previous owner did not include the hood scoop as part of the rebuild plan.) It's beautiful, nonetheless, with GT-350 running board stripes, Cragars allround, and its inspired me to finish cloning the car into a Shelby. The electrical system and emergency brake need to be re-assembled prior to the car being roadworthy. The drive-train is a complete rebuild with a modified A Code 289 and four-speed manual tranny. The engine has a Le Mans flat tappet camshaft and hipo lifters, rockers and over-size pistons that function in 302 heads. The dual exhaust has a very throaty sound and I can't wait to take it on to remote highway for a good test drive. I want to replace the current intake, carb, oil pan and rad in favour of the original Shelby look. Ergo, here's my question: Is it worth my while to track down the Le Mans 715 CFM Holley carb? I've heard these carbs can be problematic on street machines and I know that they are pricey. Any advice is appreciated.
