Where to get a new carb from

I have a 68 Olds Toro 455 in my 72 Cutlass Supreme . Can I get a remanufactured Quadrajet for it or do I need to replace the intake also ? I noticed that Summit has some 750 - 800 CFM carbs but they don't seem to be for this application ... when I type 68 Toro in nothing comes up . Thanks in advance.

I suggest you either rebuild the Qjet you have or have it rebuilt professionally. There are members on our site that do Qjet rebuilds. If your heart is set on an aftermarket carb I would caution you against using the Summit carburetor. I have one on my 71 98 and it ALWAYS needs tinkering and I already rebuilt it once. You can get an Edelbrock Thunder AVS or a Holley Street Avenger for a little bit more and they are far superior to the Summit carb,

Bryan, I found this on the first line of my search. You should be able to determine what you have by looking at the side bowl of the carb and go from there. Is it 4MC or 4MV?

I have used this guy - his name is Rusty Petrovic. He sold me a restored 7042250 for my 72 Cutlass S. It was done to perfection and was very reasonably priced.

Ken from Everyday Performance is a Qjet guru - he can customize it to your specs and is very well regarded amongst the Qjet crowd - I have one of his builds on my 350 and it rocks.

Another source I've used in the past is Allstate Carburetor - also excellent at general rebuilds and beyond.
