Yes..I have them but not on the car. Oh...I think the intake is not original too but not 100% sure about that.

Edelbrock intake and thermoquad carb added some time.I had a 70 383 Cuda all original back in 71. Cast iron intake and a Holley vaccum secondary carb.all I did to mine at the time was free flowing mufflers and a 780 Holley a good clutch and a supper time on the engine.i was going to mechanic school at the time so it was on the engine analyzer every Saturday morning and street racing it that night.it was very fast!!

One piece of advice on the block. The deck of the block may need surfacing. It may not be flat. They can even be warped. I’d make sure it needs it before they just cut it. A good shop can check it with a straight end. Now, there are numbers on the right deck surface that will be removed if the block is decked. I have not had had a 383 block that I have tried to save those numbers but most shops just look at you funny and tell you it will be hard to save them with their machine. So if you have to surface the deck to true it up, be sure and take plenty of pictures and a pencil rubbing of the numbers. Nice original car by the way.

I love a thermo-quad on a 383 with cast iron intake. Nothing like those big secondaries opening.
