I think I do need to order it. It looks like it will come in handy.

Your carb may appear to be a single barrel because it has a single opening air horn. But look down the throat and you will see two venturies and two barrels below.

An oil filter on the stock 40 was a $7.50 option. Part 01A 18658-A.

There are two manufactures of the 94 style carburetor for the 1940 Ford. Both Holley and Ford made them. The Holley has a small "H" embossed and the Ford a letter "F" embossed, on the main body over the accelerator pump section. Both are marked 91-99 on the center main body. The top section is unique because it does not have a fuel bowl vent tube in the center of the venturi the bowl vents through a oval hole in the die casting. The internal parts are the same on both Carbs. so one rebuilding kit will repair either Carb. If you want an original Carb. Look to a rebuilder such as Charlie Schwindler in NY. Daytona in Florida sells a good rebuilding kit for the DIY.

WOW....That's ALMOST hard to fathom when you consider that $7.50 is well over ONE % of the MSRP of a WHOLE '40 Ford being approximately $660. DD

Ahh! Now the term "solidaxle" makes sense....from one "Vette guy" (and owner) to another. DD

That's exactly what I thought when I first looked at it. I've got a lot to learn here.

There have been a number of past threads on uploading photos. The basics are, click Go Advanced, then on the bar across the top is a paper clip that opens a drop-down menu. That will open a pop-up window that allows you to select a photo and up-load it. There are a lot of pitfalls figuring it out the first few times, a big one is the file size limits.

Not necessarily,

Carbs....
It could have been swapped out many times.
It could say Ford on the carb
It could say Holley on the side
It could say Chandler Groves on the side

All these carbs appear near identical to the unknowing eye.

Things get swapped around and hacked in and sometimes the wrong carb is in where a Load-O-Matic (a later version of the "94") should be.

I would expect that having the original or correct carb on the car is about as likely as having the original Ford Factory Air in all the tires...


....But if you have an 8BA engine (1949 -54 Flathead) in your 40 than more than likely It's probably got it's 'correct' Holley 94 Load-O-Matic and they are reliable and easy to work on...



cheers, moe of the north

I have owned that 61 for 35 years and can't give it up. NCRS member 10654 and have had the car reach Top flight. I don't even look at Vetts anymore at car shows, well maybe a glance.

Anthony, your Vette looks like it was in pretty nice condition for a '61 or '62
as it would have been over 20 years old when you sold it then.
Also, unless '71 has a sentimental value, don't pass up a '72, as they are
almost identical to a '71. and in the same ball park, value wise.
