Never saw a Holly from the factory unless it was special ordered.  Even the HP's had carters

Thats what i thought... i was thinking someone told me they never had Holleys in these cars coming out of factory. all the ones my dad owned such as 85 Dodge Ram 440 engine had Carters. wasnt the FORD line that had the Holley carbs out of factory? mines as factory as it gets.. nothing has been ever modified in the car i have now.

Ford and Chevy had Holley carbs on some models, only 2bbl were on Mopars from what I recall and they were smaller engines.

Holleys were used on many Mopar applications, but like others, I've never seen one.  That could be because I live in California and have only seen "Cal Spec" cars which required the Carters.

Stupid me, 6pac setup! 1350cfm of pure Holley carburetor! 2bbl 350cfm center carb to run on, and two 500CFM secondaries.....ANY TIME YOU NEED THEM, and they never choke the engine from lack of air!

Just did some digging.  I had heard that many B motors had Holleys in the early '70s.  According to Mighty Mopars 1970-1974 Plymouth switched from the Carter to a Holley - 4bbl - on the 383 in '70.  
I stopped there.  Where there's one there's bound to be more applications.

There was no '85 Ram 440.  Last year of the 440, except for holdovers in the Motorhome world, was '78.  Largest motor for a Ram in '85 was the 360, and it would have had a Carter, but it was a Thermoquad which was a spreadbore carb.




 
I stand correct. my dad owned a 1 ton 1985 Dodge D350 with a 440 engine. Even a 1985 B350 VAN has a 440.

I personally never heard of a 440 in 85, but that doesn't mean they don't exist

well maybe it was added on and replaced the old engine. all i know when we bought it, it stated 440 engine and got parts for at napa for a 440 engine setup. i know most are usually 360s... but this was a 440.

Yes, a Commercial motor.  Ford also made a 383 - in Mercurys only.


My Son's Gremlin has a 401 in it.  We put it there....

I have no problem accepting that your Dad has vehicles from '85 with 440s in them.  What I will not accept is that they came that way from the factory.  What motor information is on the door or in the engine bay itself?  I'll bet it will say either 5.2 or 5.9.
 
we bought it that way... vin matched to motor codes. we no longer have the pickup as we traded it for a 1996 Chevy 3/4 ton.   not arguing, just stating what we had. if a 1985 B350 van had them, why not a D350 ram?
 

I see a lot of '74 E Bodies with 440s in them on eBay.  But I know for certain they did not leave the factory that way.  Even though it was still being made, the biggest motor a '74 E could come with was a 360.

is a 1985 D350 Ram 1 ton an E body?
