    Typically a GM carb but Mopar did switch over to Quadrajets at some point in the 80‘s after Carter went bust. They‘re actually quite good and easier to find parts for than the traditional Thermoquad. Does it come with the correct linkage? Obviously you‘ll need a 4-bbl intake. Mopar just used the intake and heads from the 360 resulting in even lower compression, probably not a great idea! Usual choice would be either the Edelbrock Performer or RPM/Air Gap intake. The Quadrajet isn‘t the easiest carb to rebuild or tune correctly though, I‘d certainly recommend the use of a O2 sensor. A more conventional carb might be a better choice tbh.

    Picture is of a 78 Plymouth Volare SuperCoupe. Yes, those parts will fit your car, and member BHA43 was making Fiberglass reproductions of those parts I believe.
