Some good info for 1965 Polara/880/Monaco owners. I am going to do this in a few thread posts, but I think it is some good information for everybody. Those of you that know me know that I have (2) 65 Monaco’s (Ivory and Beige), so I am always looking for new information on restoring these cars and finding correct parts. Unfortunately, as many of you know 1965 C Body part reproduction is a little hard to come by, so you must use your researching skills and mechanical talents. Find applicable information with relatable more popular cars. Searching internet, OEM Shop Manuals, and talking to people at car shows. This saga started last year when my Ivory car started running a little rough. Car unfortunately had sit outside for a while. So, after all the basic tune up items were completed, my ultimate demon came to life. It must be the fuel system, so let’s bite the bullet and start down that road. I knew the original Carter AFB Carburetor had never been rebuilt. So, I started down the path to solve this problem. There are 2 options here, do it yourself or find a shop. Since time for me is always an issue, I decided to send it out. Some people might debate this, but I found it convenient and a very good experience. I’m too old for the late-night parts dip and bench full of parts for my own rebuild. I had previously used Bowen Carburetors in Bristol, PA for another project.

On that Saturday I let the carb dry out and sent it USPS, and it was off. They called me Tuesday to take my payment and tell me it was done. New ethanol resistant carb rebuild kit, float, ultrasonic clean everything. They also run and tune it on a Mopar V8 engine at the shop. I got the carb back to my house that Friday. So, less than 7 days it was sent off; rebuilt, tuned, tested, and back to my house. Cost was around $235 or so plus shipping. Quality work as you can see in the pictures. Also, great customer service and great advice anytime in the future I would need it. Next thread, onto the gas tank……..see carb pictures.
