Default 1957 Dual Four Barrel Carb and Manifold

Ok, I have found a really nice condition original 2x4 manifold and just one carb comes with it. The carb is the front carb from the 270 hp 283 engine. Numbers on the carb are:
Air horn 6-1299 (cast) 1161 (stamped)
Main body 0-1049
Base 1-1387 B with an "X"

I have to pay $1200 for these 2 items, the front carb and the manifold. They are really nice shape, not junk at all. What do you all think of this price?. I am new to these older parts. I do not care if it is "correct" for my car by the numbers.

Main body 0-1049 indicates that it is probably a service replacement carb. (originals were 0-049).Original bases didn't have an "X".1957 air horns were either 6-1156 or 6-1203. What is the configuration of the auxiliary air valve (light/heavy weight, long/short lever)?
Considering the above info., the price is way too high. The only value is the intake and they are VERY plentiful.

Per Gary Hodges, the NCRS Tech Advisor for carburetors, 1957 2x4's used the 0-1049 main body as well as the 0-049, and 6-1299 is the correct air horn for '57 2x4's.

My original '57 (#4275, built in June) had 0-1049 main bodies and 6-1299 air horns on its 2626S and 2627S carbs, with original May brass tags and 1/2" air valve weights.

Wow, Thanks for that info. I think I might do it!

John,
The info. I posted above was from Gary's articles written in the NCRS Restorer. I went through both articles and that's what I came up with. I think I was wearing my glasses.
Yours must be a 270HP and have the short or long air valve levers???

Yup, 283/270 2x4, with short (1-13/32") levers, 1/2" weights and E 7 1 tags. All 2626S/2627S 2x4 carbs made after April had the short levers and 1/2" weights.

I reread Gary's articles (using glasses) and it seems there were alot of running changes in the 1957 model year as far as 2X4's go. I'm glad that by the time they made my 1960 270HP, things were pretty standardized with no changes.

I changed by mind and bid and won it at $1225! I have always wanted a 283-270hp dual four engine! Now I need the distributor. Maybe I will use a Pertronix is it?

Thanks everyone for all the help! Chris
