the carby is still on there, it is an updraft . they all used them years ago. worked okay but you had to be careful of flooding because the fuel would pool in the intake elbow causing a fire hazard. the old man removed the one off his chrysler crown and fitted a down draft stromberg .

They stopped production, on the flathead version, in the 1980s. They made 6 or 7 different size 4 cylinder models, like your picture. Google, continental engine.
