I have obtained a '58 Fury Dual Quad Manifold #1822004, with 2 Carter Carbs #2631S (front) and #2632S ( rear). Those are the original carb/manifold combo that came with my Dad's car. This is going to be fun!!!
For those younger fellows on the board, these Carter WCFB carbs were the predecessors to the Carter AFB. Some say the letters stand for White Cast Four Barrel and some say they stand for Will Carter Four Barrel.
They're the same carbs that were used on the 2-4 bbl combos from the factory on small block Chevies in the 50's and early 60's, as well as other GM manufacturers and also Chrysler Corporation. First motor to ever make 1 hp per cubic inch from the factory was the Chrysler 354 hemi, using two of these carbs, 1956.
