Default 79 inline 6 - carb help please!

Restoring a 1979 with a straight six engine. I need to rebuild the carb, but I don’t know which Rochester model I have. Anyone know what the factory one was or how I can tell which one I have now?

Should be a Type: Rochester UniJet; model 1ME.

It could have been replaced with an Autolite version of the Rochester carb (turn about is fair play; GM sold Saginaw steering gear boxes to Ford). They are offered as a remanufactured unit (where the parts are inspected and cleaned before being reused), or you can risk $35 buck on a rebuild kit and reuse your parts.
