Babe needs help

By chevy66babe

Lately Babe has been having a sluggish problem starting and my mechanic found that some sort of injector that puts fuel into carburetor is bad. He tried to find a kit for that part, but nothing fits. So he has the word out for a rebuilt carburetor or even get a new one made by a vintage restorer.

If anybody knows where we can go to find a carburetor, please let me know.
Just e-mail me at, since I don't spend much time in here anymore after getting hit by two viruses when I was in this site. I'm afraid to take the chance.

I want to be able to keep Babe running. He has a lead on a couple of restored ones that have to be shipped from out of town, but the guy was out until Monday. He seemed optimistic that we'll find something somewhere. He has a '55 Chevy that he restored a few years ago.
He just told me not to drive Babe much except for emergencies for a few days until he gets new one put in, because she might stall out on me.
Thanks everyone, I appreciate how much all of you think of Babe and all the kind remarks.

Do you have the Carburetor number by chance? If not, which engine do you have? There were 3 - 6 cyls available in this year model year Chevelle a 194 CID Inline-Six I6, 230 CID Inline-Six I6 and a 250 CID Inline-Six I6 - also is the car equipped with manual or automatic transmission?
