Hints

Here are some hints; Bob has 3 parts correctly named, Dan has 1 part correct, fuel injection was not allowed at NASCAR tracks, there are actually 6 part types with 7 different part numbers, I stumbled on to this supplemental information while looking for something else about a '57 Chevrolet. nolan

I agree with Brian, the car was known as the Black and White in NHRA, when it got built for NASCAR they became known !st as the Dontov 150 or car. then they became the Black Widow.

The cars were built by SEDCO out of Atlanta, They came to speed week in 1957 with FI on them and ran with it, after the 500 NASCAR outlawed FI.
Buck Baker drove one to the championship in 57 with a 4bbl carb on it.

They also had a rearend with 6 lugs on it. SEDCO made other colors but the black and white ones were the Black Widow.

If I got three of the parts right I don't even know which 3, it was just what I found, Part # I don't have a clue.

Bob

It's a great question Nolon. IT must be it has me stumped. LOL

Part No. Description
3736097 Special Performance Camshaft
3749664 Gear - Sprocket, Camshaft Timing
3746289 Notched Piston, with pin, L.H.
3746290 Notched Piston, with pin, R.H.
3837002 Valve Spring and Damper
5231585 Valve Tappet (Mechanical type)
*3749666 Carburetor Assembly

*Specially calibrated four-barrel carburetor required with the special performance camshaft.


If that ain't the answer, I give up.....

Yep, Thats It

You got it Joe, Thats what I'm talking about! I thought it was kinda funny that NASCAR outlawed the fuel injection, then Chevrolet had to do a supplement on the NASCAR ALLOWED components.

You have the floor. Nolan
