Will This Holley Fit Under My Shaker Hood Scoop?

Hey guys I've decided on this carb. Did lots of research and this is the one. My question is will this fit under my shaker hood scoop base plate on my 1971 Challenger? I can't see why it wouldn't but just wanted to be sure before I bought it. Let me know. Thanks

You'll probably need to find one and do some measuring, unless someone has the exact setup, there's no other way we'd know.

Only thing that I can think of that MIGHT be different wuld be the height. I assume(hate that word,lol) you had an AFB or Thermoquad? just take some measurements . I don't think there would be a lot of difference,or at least not enough to cause a clearance problem. Now if you are using an aftermarket intake,that could be a totally different story. Do like 68 NovaSS said and see if you can borrow someones Holley for mock-up.
