Help: Identify this carby & intake manifold

Hi all,

I need some assistance identifying these parts, I bought them a few years ago on the premise that they were original XW GT items (Australian Falcon sedan). The carby should therefore be an Autolite 4300 (450CFM).

A couple of half hearted attempts to sell them has resulted in some confusion about what exactly they are.

The purple ID plate on the carby has the following code on it: 73-0A-AA

Cheers!
Alex.

Manifold is a 351W 4bbl dual plane, almost certainly off Windsor powered XW GT.

Carb is Autolite 4300 -

Re: Help: Identify this carby & intake manifold

Thanks Kieron & Wolf.

I'm under the impression that the 4300 came in a few different flow ratings over the years.. (450 & 600CFM specifically). Is this right?

If so, how would I tell what rating this one is?

Cheers,
Alex.
