Default Carburator Replacement

I have a 1966 Mustang convertible, 6 cylinder, 200 cubic inch engine, automatic transmission that is all original that I have owned for about 50 years. I want to replace my original carburetor since I've having problems with the old one. I cannot tell what my original one is such as name of manufacturer or what number it is. Someone told me it was probably an Autolite 1100 but I don't know. I'm sure one of you out there knows the truth and if so please advise me. Thanks

pics of the carb would be a start to identify if it's OEM or aftermarket. You are the second owner so who know what the first owner did to it. Best to work with known variables vs just starting to guess.

And Yes, Autolite was Ford OEM many years ago Until like the 70's when Ford Autolite was sold to Bendix.

Two years ago I bought a remanufactured original Autolite 1100 off of a seller on ebay named topspeed1559. It was bench tested and tuned, all I had to do was bolt it on and my 68 has run perfectly for the past two years.

Thanks guys for your responses. I found out my carb is an original Ford Autolite 1100. I have ordered a new rebuilt one from topspeed 1559 as recommended by Ascola.
