Default Carburetor changeover to something more modern

Today is your lucky day, and a firm named Edelbrock has everything you need to have the newest style carburetor and intake manifold, along with a wonderful electric choke to make cold starting easier. They make a 600CFM Carb, and a manifold to match. This is their Performer series, and I have it on a number of my Chyrsler products. They can sit for months and just fire up any time I want to drive one of my prizes. I would look no further, and please don't let anyone tell you about Holley carbs and all that nonsense, as I suspect you don't plan to run you car at the dragstrip. Don't make the mistake of specifying a larger carb, as you will likely not run your car at wide-open throttle either.
