what kind of carb are you getting?
I told the guy that’s doing the work to order original (OEM) carb for it. I think that Ford used Holley on that car, but if it was Carter or other, he’ll research it and order accordingly. I definitely won’t use a cheap knock off….

The 20A is date code.
1962
The second position is a letter from A to M for the month
The A is the first week of that month

The C2DE R tag is an engineering number
C2DE R is for a 1962 Ford Falcon or Fairlane with 170. The part number is C2DZ 9510 B
It is a Holley design

Does that help?

Btw, what’s the best place to buy that Holley carburetor in your opinion?

In my opinion ..... ??
I typically buy several used ones and make a very good one that I rebuild.or custom make to my needs.
Sell what ever is left over,

I am kind of weird about stuff like that. I will find an OE that has the correct tag and maybe build date.
I bought 5 carbs for my 70 Mark III. The last one was a rebuilt from Autozone because it was so difficult to find exactly what I wanted. And they had one,
That particular one was actually the best example and I was kind of blown away about that.

Ok, so I have a guy that does the work on mine. I’m not too mechanically inclined, I just love driving it…😂

So I still need to know ‘where’ I can find that carburetor. I’d like a new one preferably, reconditioned last choice…

New one .... does not exist. Those carbs have not been made for decades. I have had bad experiences everywhere, So ....

OReilly's has a Tomco reman. Manual choke which I would think is accurate. Has a warranty and it is possible that it might come in handy.
What does your "guy" say?

kitting the existing is the cheapest way out. new carb like action said would come with a warranty that is nice.
is yours the holley 1904 model?
there is a co that makes a new 1904 carb but it cost a bit.

and there maxspeedingrods

heres that Tomco carb Action was talking about. View attachment 51312

hope this helps you out a bit.
Thank you. I do understand that kitting the existing is the least expensive. Lots of wear on the existing, chips and pitting, sloppy linkages etc….I’d prefer a new carb, but only if it was an ‘actual’ Holley which Action is saying doesn’t exist. I can’t tell if mine is a 1904,1908 or 1909 as I’ve seen all three offered as fits for my car???? I’m fine with $350.00 for a new one thats a universal fit I suppose if that’s the best I can do, and can determine that it will fit my application. I’ll see if I can contact them…and it’s got 5 star reviews….🤔

The one from maxpeedingrods.com is interesting, I’ll check it out too.

The Tomco only has a 2 star rating, that’s discouraging….🤔

Thanks for the info…

Yeah, there’s a FoMoCo tag with a number on it that @Action interpreted for me. There’s a number stamped into the base of my carburetor of 2345-1

But I’m uncertain how to tell what model number it is ie., 1904,1908,1909……🤷‍♂️

The difference may be in auto choke and manual choke. Plus the bigger six (223 CID) had a Holly 1BBL too

From the Ford six website

Holley 1904/1908/1909
This carb was noted for it's trouble free design and was considered to be an excellent carb for the early 60's, capable of providing good fuel economy and reliable service. The 1904 was introduced in '52, but wasn't used on our sixes until early 1960, on Falcons and Comets. Then in late '60 and '61 both models came with the 1908. In 1962 the newly designed 1909 was used on Falcon and Comets, as well as Fairlanes. The Falcon carbs came with a manual choke, while the Comets and Fairlanes came with an automatic choke. All three carbs, normally installed on 215/223ci engines, had a slightly smaller bore and venturi for use on the 144/170ci engines. Flow rates were as follows, 130/150/170cfm for the 1904, 135/150cfm for the 1908, and 125/150cfm for the 1909.

Pretty sure for 62 Falcon the correct carb will have less CFM and a manual choke
