That last one looks suspiciously like an early constant velocity (CV) carb with a creative choke mechanism. Good stuff.

My wife's 89 Tercel had a CV (they called it variable venturi) carb in it, and got 55mpg when it was working right. Which almost never happened.

Invalid argument techniques to watch for.
