Carburettor Specification:AUD 33, Make:Volvo, Model:122, Engine Size:1788 cc, Carb Type:HS6, Year:1961 to 1962, Number of Carbs:2

Originally fit to a 1788cc engine.

Apparently these go for about $275.00 on feeBay and mine are in nicer shape than those were.
The GT6 manifold and adapters with linkage should also have some value.

These use the four bolt mounting so may be easier to adapt to????

I no longer have any GT6 engines but do have a big machine shop bill coming due, so these may as well be sold. Can do pics in the morning when the light is better if needed.

Is it an early or late GT6 intake manifold?

Do not know, how do I tell the difference?
I expect the adapter blocks would fit either.

In case it helps anyone, the carburetors from a 1961 122S that I maintained in the mid-'70s were identical to the carbs on my  1967 Triumph TR4A (just swapped front to rear). Those on the Triumph had a single choke cable, with a balance bar. The Volvo had a Y choke cable.
