Been around for years. One of the first aftermarket carbs That last pic I sent to you has a perry on that Go . Yes they have gone to hard plastic case or been that way from the start. WORK great. good price. I am not sure if the are a racing carb or sport. only played a little with it. Just better aftermarket out there, now-days. You will pay more too

its a hard plastic body, black.

it appears the low speed is a wheel on the side, with the high speed needle going threw the wheel.

might be good to hang on to for back up

i ran a perry carb on my 8th scale race car in the 70's. great carb, good idle, great power off the line. i could idle for 5 min. at a time.   the wheel is the low speed idle adjustment  and works with the idle stop screw.   the only problem to watch for are the o-rings inside on the idle wheel brake over time and have to be replaced when idle goes out.
