Mr. Gasket makes a two barrel to square pattern four barrel adapter plate. Just about any speed shop, some Pep Boys and other chain stores have it for around $20. Nothing fancy but it'll suit your needs.

save the $20
a just a bigger carb on a stock motor helps close to nothing....for a street car

your stock 2V carb and correct 2V cam and timing are designed to work together (for highest low-med rpms Hg) for max torque thru about 4500rpms....

"it all has to work together"...carb/intake and cam

I agree. Put your money into headers, a stiffer rear gear or a looser converter.

1) headers, best bang for the buck $ 120
2) distributor recurved, almost free
3) cold air intake, home made almost free
4) swap meet intake manifold and your carb. $ 100
5) cam kit and retune $ 200-300
