Chaparaal 2J 'Sucker Car' with Lexan skirting that maintained ground clearance in sync with suspension. Fat-Blok Chevy engine and a snowmobile two-stroke twin cylinder engine to run the fans. Jim Hall and Hap Sharp incessantly pushed the envelope in the 60's and into the 70's. Nearly all the Chapaaral cars survived and are in Hall's 'Rattlesnake Raceway' museum in Midland Texas. Hall and the Chapaaral cars (maintained to remain operational) are living ledgends.

Going through the carb and cleaning and/or installing a carb kit should help a lot. Sounds possibly like air leak below the butterfly or an obstructed idle jet. Check all the gaskets; a little squirt of carb cleaner or WD-40 between lower carb and head/intake mating area while running should cause speed-up if you have an air leak. Check the throttle shaft for excessive wear; that's a below-butterfly air leak. Check all hoses for air leak.


Beautiful little truck. Like having a favorite pair of pants with wheels on them.

My God ! That's the most beautiful automobile that I've seen all year.


Where are you located to have a LHD Sunny pickup?  Central America ?


A Weber 32/36  DGV-Series  carb is hard to beat but you'd need to be sure that it is for sure a Spanish manufacture Carb and not a Asian knock-off.


Also you'd be best advised to acquire the carb from a reputable supplier that can supply the proper adapter plate and can jet it for the little A-Series engine.


Welcome, You'll find good info here.
