Check out this Bill Jenkins built Holley that JR posted a link to in some old photos. It looks like to front halves of a Holley that have been put together. Anyone saw anything like this?

Well......I guess that's one way to get a double pumper with 4 corner idle.:D

Maybe wanted a double pumper in a size not offered at the time? DP's came out in 67--what year was the photo?
I would guess around 1970. The picture was in the same album with pictures of his 1970 Camaro.

That is a cool pic.


It may very be a couple of 500 cfm two barrels, but I dont see why he wouldnt have just used an 800 cfm DP to start with?

Maybe the DPs were not available at the time?

I still have a couple 850 "center squirter" style carbs from around that time. You would "think" it would flow more air than 2 500s? Maybe not?

Thats what it looks like. 2 Two barrels
If you run the 800 DP you don't get the 4 corner idle circuits. All most looks like a pre dominator

Perhaps an experimental carb for the old Studebakers that seemed to have two front ends?
