Rod & Custom features Genuine 97 Tripower

When R & C Editor Rob Fortier wanted a cool nostalgia carb set-up for his latest Chevy engine project, who did he turn to? Genuine Stromberg, of course, with a complete system professionally put together by Rick Casada at SO-MO Speed Shop in Galena, Missouri.

In his own words, “We’re talking real Stromberg 97s, an Offenhauser three-deuce intake, and copper fuel lines with an old-fashioned glass bowl filter. The difference between a SO-MO Speed Shop setup and all the others — it’s already been professionally assembled, tuned, and test-run (on a dyno’d engine); all you do is bolt it on, hook it up and go. Simple as that. “

The story was run over two issues, so click the pictures below to read more.  And if you fancy something like that for your own ride, why not give Rick a call? You’ll find SO-MO Speed Shop in our Dealer Network pages (in the menu above).
