    I have a 1963 Chrysler Newport with a 361. Currently has the original Stromberg WWC-3 2 barrel carb on it that is beyond rebuild and would like to replace with a new carb. It is just a Sunday cruiser and do not want to change the intake to a 4 barrel. What do you guys recommend for a 2 barrel carb that will fit this engine. Thanks

    look for a rebuilt 70 -73 360-400 two barrel holley, that will bolt right up. I also have an extra for a 73 360-400 application. But I am sure rebuilts are available.

    @Dana at Woodruff Carbs might have a rebuilt carb or a good core to rebuild.

    Since it's a "Sunday cruiser", keeping an original or close to original carb will keep the headaches in tuning, linkage etc. to a minimum.

    Holley still makes 2 barrel carbs, including some 350 cfm ones that should be close to the same capacity as the WWC. Street - Holley

    Some hardware is needed to hook them up. I've thought about one of these for my '66 Newport, but am apt to get a new Edelbrock AVS2.

    @Jayvan1967 I have one that came off my 1965 318 poly which was a remanufactured one, probably only has a few hundred miles on it
