On the Dash Cheetahs, I wonder if a different chrome insert could be used? Imho the chrome doesn't look as good as the original. Maybe something different could be used?

Back in the day: '66 Corvette (that hooked up), 327/300 hp, 3.7:1 gear, 650 double pumper, curved distributor, sidemount headers. It ran pretty fair.

I loved to pull up next to a jacked up big block that was loading up...

To my eye, the Cheetah (actually, all Cheetahs) "need" injector stacks. Preferably polished.

That's what I am thinking, tubes (velocity stacks) in chrome or aluminum gray color. I had a Corvair Corsa and the 4 carb setup worked really well. I ditched the springs and cut pieces of hose to put over the linkage to control when the secondaries would open up. Worked great. When bought the engine, it had only 2 carbs with it's secondaries capped off. So I ordered a used set of linkage and carbs and rebuilt them. Prior to that I tried the spider looking single 4 bbl 500 cfm Holley carb but I didn't like it.
