2 venturi or 4 venturi carburetor? V8 or 6 cylinder?

Yours appears to be an aftermarket bracket. This often happens because people converting from one carburetor to another don't know that the throttle cables are different, and then look for a solution to make the existing parts work.

I will have one from an 81 Malibu V8, 2 venturi carb, if needed.

thanks for the fast response.
so i found out that the owner previously had a 4 venturi carburetor installed and that bracket custom made for that specific carburetor, but when he sold it he reinstalled the original 2 venturi one and just left the bracket there anyways, so the car is a v8 one and with a 2 venturi carburetor so your bracket from the 81 malibu would definetly fit! i am very interested, been looking for a fitting one for ages already.

Give me a day or two to get it out and verify it's the correct one.
