    THANKS FOR ANY INFO... It was saved by my grandfather that passes away about a year ago. Just going through his collection to see if there's any gold nuggets.

    Google search show it to be a Ford type F4 carb. Used '77-'78 on the 460 V8. I'm sure others can tell you more. -Dave

    Thanks, Dave
     
  4. The 'type' is 4300 (as opposed to the more common and popular 2100 and 4100 types). It was Ford's answer to the Quadrajet and isn't that good a carb IMO. Originally brought out in '67, it was built in both 'square bore' and 'spread bore' versions and was primarily designed as an 'emissions' carb.

    Doesn't look like any girl I've ever seen. Looks like a carburetor.

    I was going to call it a smog carb, but was trying to be polite. Probably removed to put something on and kept just in case the car was returned to stock. But that's just wild speculation on my part. Put it on ebay call it rare and see what happems. -Dave
