Magnificent work, a true craftsman
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

Well, more than that.
This is a “services offered” in that you may think your rotten piece of history is history… give me a chance. Maybe it won’t be perfect, but we might make it usable again.

Worth a shot

That is so true.  You did an excellent job on the fire survivor carb I sent you.  It may not look perfect, but works great.

This is the same. I cannot fix the pock mark of corrosion, but the insides of this one were perfect. Even the gasket mating surfaces required very very little.

One would be very hard pressed to find anyone better!!!!!   Drews attention to every fine detail whether a rebuild or concours restoration is unmatched in my opinion. Check out his AirFuelSpark page on FB. Amazing craftsmanship and KNOWLEDGE of the FORD Holley carburetor.
