    This is a cast iron, two piece carburetor with a gasket between the parts. Details include a choke paddle one end and an in and out switch on the other. The paddle has an open and close switch. The Model A Ford was first sold in 1927 after Henry Ford stopped producing the Model T. Unlike the Model T, the Model A had 1800 additional parts and came in seven body styles painted in the customer's choice of four colors. This carburetor enabled the car to run 20 to 30 miles on one gallon of gasoline. The carburetor was probably taken out of a family car under repair. This would not have been unusual because many families repaired their own cars and it was encouraged by its manufacturer. Every Model A came with a tool kit which contained a wide variety of items such as a tire pump and a spark plug wrench.
