352 carb?

I have purchased my first 64 galaxie. As i wait for the snow to melt so i can get it home, i have a question. When i went down to look at it i thought that it had a 2bbl carb. after getting the vin and looking up the numbers it shows the 352 with a 4bbl. did the 352's come with both carbs? it is completely possible that i looked it over to quickly and am wrong. the car is stock and I don't think anything has ever been changed out. Thanks.

Re: 352 carb?

I could be wrong, but I thought that all the 352's came with the 4V in '64. Mine did anyway and it is stock.

I believe you are right. Earlier 352's could have a 2 barrel but 64,65,66 had 4 barrels. The exception would be truck motors. I seem to remember trucks of that vintage with 352 - 2 barrel.

True.

I have an original 64 sales catalog. No 352/2v available.

Re: 352 carb?

But keep in mind, almost all FE's look identical from the outside. It might not be the original engine or intake if it does have the 2bbl. No way to know anything for sure until you dig into it.

Re: 352 carb?

Or someone just swapped intake and carb to try to save on fuel at some point also.

Re: 352 carb?

True Rich, they all run on the front barrels til you stomp em.

Sometimes looking at a car we don't pay attention to things like carbs so it could very well be a 4bbl.

Re: 352 carb?

IF it's a factory stock 4-bbl, it's the big Autolite...1.12" venturi...so rebuild it as long as it still has it's original booster venturis. The 1.12" carb has plenty of CFM for a stock to mildly built 352. Post the carb number when you get a chance. Even if it's the 2-bbl Autolite, there were quite a few different sizes all the way up to a rather big 1.33" venturi model used on some 390 engines.

Re: 352 carb?

I've double-checked my 64 352ci ragtop, and mine indeed does have the two barrel, I look in my copy of "Motor's Auto Repair Manual 1969" and it lists the 1964 352 v8 as only having the 2 barrel..


PS: But the I look in the same book under 1964 "X engine code" and it is the 352 V8 with 4 barrel carb, and that is the only option for the 352 v8 of that year no where does it have a 2 barrel, it contradicts itself :S
