That looks like a number 6425 Holley 650 cfm two barrel with the choke horn cut off, or it could also be a severely modified 4412 500 cfm carb. I used to run two 6425's on an STR-10 Edelbrock in an...

The 1958 Delray interests me as as much or more than the plastic cars, but beggars can't be choosers.

I never took a picture, but my first Pontiac was a 41 four door. Looked like this. The seats were as comfortable as a living room couch... and nearly as spacious.

The 3418 was a vacuum secondary carb, then in 69 they changed to a 4296, which was a double pumper. Just for the record, I have never run across a plain 3418, only 3418-1's. Strange.
