The car was a very late 06A based on VIN. I saw it over 10 years ago and will check if I still have notes on it. I did take a photo of the carb w/lines & bracket attached. I'm guessing an early 06A would not have the bracket based on what is known.
It was in a farm field untouched for 26 years-probably still there. Just about anything of value had been removed and was piled in a shed.
