Mystery Carb!

Interesting! I found out from the guys on the Studebaker Drivers Club Forums that the carb on my Lark wasn't original equipment. By extension, neither was the intake. I kind of figured; after all, Carter 4-bbls from this time of the '60s were usually AFBs; the one on my Stude is a WCFB.

Where it gets interesting, though, is that my carb - a 2219S - actually IS from a Studebaker. Thing is, it's a 1957 Studebaker! Probably a President. Seems whoever did this car before swapped in manifold and carb straight outta an older Stude. Ah well... whatever works! The PO also converted the carb to electric choke. Think I'll leave it that way ;^)
