It looks like a '65 unit from an automatic trans car. The carbs look appropriate, if not totally correct. Can't tell from the photo. For the price, perhaps a fair deal. For a nin concourse non numbers car, what matters is function. The outer carbs shown have no choke or idle mixture screws. This is correct for a tripower se-up. If rebuildable (and it probably is) with mechanical linkage it would be great on a 400.

What about the vacuum pot, are the Pontiacs vacuum operated on the outers, I know Mopars are. I have seen complete rebuilt tripowers for $1200-$1600. I don't see if it has the rear bolt hole or not, if it doesn't, it is. Put the intake numbers up and we'll see what it is.

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.
