Did Buick ever offer a multi carb on a car?

    I was chatting with a guy at work and a question arose about the old multi carbs.
    were they ever offered on a Buick?
    Such as the the 1966 Olds Tri Power
    Or the older Olds J2 option in the 50's?

    Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Goes back much further than a nailhead...think 1941 and compound carburetion.

    I think Buick offered a dual-carb intake as a dealer upgrade on the big blocks. I've never seen one in person, though.

    Buick was the 1st. to offer multi-carbs. from the factory of the big three in, as Brad said, 1941. Buick was 1st. in many things most don't realize.
