Hi Again All

During the 1966 to 1968 Hemi era, were any of the engines fitted with dark possibly black carbs?
If so which engines and why?

Not that I know of. Any and all of the stock and near-stock 426
Street Hemis that I've ever seen all had an natural aluminum
finish on their AFB carbs .. One possibility though - for a while
back in the '70's, Carter sold an 'aftermarket performance' version
of the AFB that had a black finish. Perhaps someone swapped
the stock Street Hemi AFB carvs for a pair the black colored
Carter aftermarket versions. I can't relaly see why though, unless
maybe original Jemi carbs were missing or something, because
there'd be no performance advantage whatsover to using the
Carter aftermarket AFBs over the stock originals.
