Okay, so nobody got #1178 Who Am I # 1178
and so I'll tell you it was George Keller, who made the Keller car.

Okay, now I'm really going to get tough:
I was the only Ford Co. car (or at least the only one Shiftright remembers) that used a GM carburetor!!
Who Am I?
hints: 4-barrel / big block

I'd guess Lincoln, but couldn't guess the year.

I'm an American luxury brand that used GM's Hydra-matic transmission for five years. Who am I, and in which model years did I offer Hydra-Matic?

I assume you meant in a non GM brand?
How about a 1949-1953 Lincoln?

I'll guess the 1971 Mustang 429 CJ with a Rochester Quadrajet 4bbl. Only reason that rings a bell is because I had a '71 Mustang 302 V8 in high school. I don't know if any other models came with that engine/carb combo. My ex-girlfriend's father had an original 1970 Torino Cobra 429 and he said that the Holley carb on that engine was original equipment.

Didn't T-Birds use them for a few years?

Ford used the GM Rochester Quadra-jet in some 429ci motors as I recall....in maybe '73 or so.

Yep 70-71 on the Cougar Cobra Jet but not the Super Cobra Jet...for some odd reason they elected to use Air Injection instead.
Problem was, Ford didn't have a clean carburetor for emissions, so they used the Rochester for that short while.

You nailed it. Yes, Lincoln, but I think the years were '51-'53. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong on that.
