Speedway Motors’ New Stromberg 97 Replicas

Speedway Motors’ New Stromberg 97 Replicas

Finding genuine old Stromberg 97 carbs is becoming more difficult by the day, and working with castings and innards that are pushing 70 years old on a good day is a also a problem. That’s why these new pieces from Speedway Motors look like a great idea for a retro-rod project!

See the release below where they give you all the gory details. We’ll take half a dozen on top of our finned-valve-cover 327 please.


Speedway Motors 9Super7™ Carburetor

Wow!! Speedway Motors now offers a reproduction version of one of the most popular carburetors ever – the original Stromberg 97!

Original equipment on ’30s and ’40s cars and trucks, the Stromberg 97 has long been favored by hot rodders and racers who realized the performance qualities of this timeless fuel supplier. There have been numerous attempts to reproduce this unit, with little success. “Speedy” Bill Smith of Speedway Motors took on the challenge to make a great design even better. The Speedway Motors 9Super7™ brings the original Stromberg 97 into the 21st Century!

Speedway Motors has incorporated a long list of refinements to make the 9Super7™ successful:
•    All-new tooling for crisp, flawless castings
•    Stainless steel bolts and hardware used throughout
•    Grose-style needle and seat
•    Extended brass throttle shaft
•    Modern Nitrophyl float
•    Aluminum base to dissipate heat and eliminate vapor lock

These improvements have all been made while maintaining the carburetor’s original appearance. Features such as the choke assembly, accelerator pump, jets and cosmetics are faithfully retained. Additionally, each carburetor is individually flow tested and inspected for leaks to ensure optimum performance.  

The 9Super7™ is just the latest in an ever-expanding line of specialty parts from Speedway Motors, America’s Oldest Speed Shop®, where we make rodding fun and affordable. Call today toll free at 1.800.979.0122 or visit us online at www.speedwaymotors.com.
