Default 1959 Corvette Carburetor?

Hey Guys,
This is a carburetor that came off of a 1959 corvette engine that i had years ago. Is this actually a 1959 corvette carburetor or what?

No. That's a Rochester 4jet. The 59 should have had a Carter WCFB.

Since it has a center fuel inlet (definately NOT Corvette), my guess is a mid 60's Olds, Buick, Pontiac or Caddy.

That's two of us now! Who knows what it possibly came off of, but it is a cool carburetor.
