You meet at all the best folks at a Stromberg show booth. Look who rocked up to to meet us at this year’s Antique Nats.
Robert and Suzanne Williams. Don’t know who Bob Williams is? Where have you been…in prison? Google him…you won’t be disappointed. In the meantime, we’ve added a picture we found of Dick’s ’32 roadster and Suzanne’s ’34 Tudor – chopped (many years ago), by new Stromberg Team Member Rick Pearmain.
Cigar Larry McCullough, who has new Stromberg 97s on all his hot rods.
Dick Flint and Dick Winfield. Dick Flint’s bright red track nosed 1929 Ford Model A roadster needs little introduction, but here’s a pic anyway. The Glendale Sidewinders member had Valley Custom form the distinctive nose and pan,helping it run 143mph at the lakes. The car was restored by Don Orosco, winning the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Hot Rods Class in 1999.
Ray Salmon, who we caught installing stacks on his new Stromberg 97s at the Antique Nationals. He said his little Model A Roadster ran better than ever with new 97s – and right out of the box, too.
How much do we love the Genuine Stromberg license plate frame? They have a real cool period feel and finish – chrome with orange, black and white Stromberg lettering. They’re sized to fit your US license plate, of course. And they’re yours for just $11.95 – from the Stromberg online shop.
Designed by us and manufactured exclusively for Stromberg, the TwoStep range combines clean, simple looks with leak-free construction and simple installation. The 1/4inch 304 stainless steel lines are bent on a smart CNC tube-bender for real accuracy and consistency, proving more than enough fuel flow, even on the 3×2 manifolds. We’ve retained the traditional Ford Nut compression fittings of course. And our unique stainless tee-pieces (shaped to match the throttle stops off our linkage parts) come with furnace brazed joints so they’re leak-free and ‘invisible’ too .
We wanted to offer the look and quality of a hand made, one-off piece, at an affordable price, but with almost every manifold for 97s putting the carburetors and fuel pump in a different place, it was quite a challenge. Suffice to say, that like every piece, we do, we carefully CAD modelled everything before manufacture so you’ve got no linkage clearance worries (typical with banjo fittings, for example), and a lot more flexibility, especially in 3×2 progressive linkage applications. Naturally, every Stromberg TwoStep fuel line comes with full instructions, but further help is available via the Stromberg Tech Center at www.stromberg-97.com.
At launch, the range covers five Ford flathead applications, for intakes and fuel pumps that are available brand new. There are lines available for the Offenhauser 2×2 regular – the 1090 intake – with the 59A or the 11A ‘pepper pot’ type fuel pumps. The Offy 1075 intake 2×2 for 8BA engines. And also the Edelbrock 1108 3×2 intake for 59A engines up to 1948 – again with two different fuel pump types.
More are planned, as development funds become available! You’ll find all these on our website – click for Linkage & fuel delivery. And click on the pics above to view full size.

What’s the Stromberg Bulletin all about? It’s a place where like-minded folks might find something that interests us. It’s somewhere you might find things you’ve never seen or heard before. It’s a meeting place where we can communicate with you, our customers, in a more interactive way. But most of all, it’s a great place to put all sorts of things that don’t really fit into our formal website.
Right now, this might mean news about new products, technical information we’d like to share, sneak previews of the various projects we’re working on, or simply a little gossip about people we’ve met or places we’ve been.
But then, we’re not really started yet, so who knows where it will lead. Please come back often and find out!
