So I took a good look at this car. It has an actual 4 bbl carb, but it's mounted to a flat plate under the hood. He even took the trouble to run a fuel line to the carb. Also, there's a chrome plated diff cover attached (glued? duct taped?) to the rear suspension.
I really don't understand people.
Ok, I saw the car again and took a picture of the differential cover. Here it is.
