It appears to be an old Ford 4bbl, made by Holley, with a hot air choke, vacuum secondary, and Ford fuel bowls (side hung floats). They came on Ford motors in RV's, motor homes, etc. as well as trucks.
The list # is on the front of the choke horn on the right side. It'll probably be a Ford # and not the Holley #, but get those #'s and let me know, I can pinpoint more particulars about it that way.
It's most likely a 600cfm 4bbl body, tho.

Hope that helps,
KP

list 80163

model=4180
fcm=600
renew kit=37-1536
primary jet=122-622
sec jet/plate= n/s
power valve=n/s
acc pump nozel=.028
secondary spring=purple
primary throtle bore=1-9/16"
secondary throtle bore=1-9/16"

with no secondary metering it will be hard to tune. appears to be a smog carb. its a good canadate for a strip down and a metering block conversion. that is if you need 600cfm.

good luck, hope that helps.

Thanks hotrod, I knew someone here would have the answer I was looking for. Got one more for you, what do you think this carb. is worth, I'm going to post it on ebay and was wondering what to start it at? Thanks again for the help.

Sorry but I wouldent pay more than $20 and use it for parts. I would start the bidding at $5 to $10. If you start it more than that there is a posability that nobody will bid on it. The thing about ebay is how you list it. If you get the right words in the title it could go for $75 or more. There are alot of people viewing it so try to be as descriptive as possable. Good luck!
