1969 Chevelle SS Quadrajet Questions

Hello,

I will preface by saying that I am not trying to be lazy by asking this here in forums, but I have spent quite a bit of time looking and I need additional info on what would be a correct code, manufacturing plant and manufacturing date for my 1969 Chevelle SS 396.

The car is all original with the exception of the Holley carb that is on it. I believe the car should have had a Quadrajet carb (the intake is stamped "Quadrajet").

The engine is a L35 JK code (325hp with TH400 auto trans). The manufacturing plant was Fremont and the date on the trim tag is "10A" (first week of October 1968). The car was manufactured for sale from Cormier Chevrolet in Long Beach, California.

If any readers/fellow Chevelle enthusiasts have a Quadrajet for sale that would be correct for my application I may be interested in buying it.

Thanks for your time.

You can still buy a Qjet from autoparts stores. Dial up rock auto and check.

I do not recall ever seeing an intake manifold for a 69 that is stamped like that I think some of the 66 or 67 396's had intakes that had the word 'Holley' cast into them, if they were originally equipped with a Holley carburetor.

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Definitely do not do this! Any commercially reman-ed Q-jets are so butchered that you'll never get it working "right". It will run the engine, but don't expect it to run well. Much better to find an original carb and build it yourself, or enlist the help of a Q-jet professional.

Couldn't agree more. Reman carbs are a waste a money and definitely a waste of time.

Yep. A gamble at best.

Bob, sorry I disagree with the carb part number for his particular application. 7029200 is the correct carb for a TH400 equipped 325 horse 396 in 1969.

Wink Re: 1969 Chevelle SS Quadrajet Questions

^^^^ According to Chevrolet by the Numbers, Jason is correct. 7029204 is for the L34 350HP motor.
Bob is also wrong about the standard trans carbs. 325HP manual trans (L35) uses the 7029201 carb.

Re: 1969 Chevelle SS Quadrajet Questions

Hi all and thanks for the input. I was looking on Chevelles.com and they have a chart which lists the 279200 series Q-jet for a '69 with the 325 HP and AT.

I checked my intake manifold and it is definitely cast with the "Quadrajet" marking on it. Casting number and date code appear to be correct/original. Anybody else ever seen this before? I can take a pic and share it if anybody is interested.
