Three of them.
I won't list it all, but there is a plethora of other parts waiting there, as part of my turbo build.
Oh, there is also a '67 Monza steering wheel too! grinning smiley

Have a NOS YH with throttle body. Flange of TB, up against carb/TB gasket is sprayed black. The separating gasket or chrome screws are not painted nor is the turbo end of the TB. The TB flange is painted approximately to the base of the flange where the barrel begins.

I was at a car show in Phoenix a few years back and came across a man who told me that he was a production supervisor at Carter. He oversaw assembly of the carbs, including the YH. He described the process of applying the black paint.

Wish I could find that guy! His car in the show was a Rover - the one that looks like a Mustang.

The two 65 Corsa convertibles that I had in the early 1970's both had black carbs and there was nothing to indicate that either had ever been disassembled (until I got my mitts on them).
