Grand Sport Crossram

Remember the ’65 Corvette Grand Sport with that wild Weber DCOE sidedraft carburetion system? Jim Inglese resurrected this crossram with each unit custom-built to match the engine it’s going on, and what you see here is exactly the way it comes out of the box: fully assembled and ready to install.

Included is the complete fuel harness, a low-pressure fuel regulator with -AN fittings, stainless liquid-filled pressure gauge, Fel Pro intake gasket set, stainless intake bolts, synchrometer, and Jim’s own manual that walks you right through the entire setup process. Jim offers endless customizing options like polished manifolds, chrome plating, custom-painted carburetors, and air cleaner choices, which are all shown on his website.
