V8 FI to Carb

I've got a CIS V8 out of a 77 450 SEL and I really want to convert it to use a carburetor. Is there a manifold that will work off an earlier V8? I don't know when MB stopped using carb'd engines or even if an carb intake will work.

Probably wants a more throaty tough V8 sound.

Don't ask...you don't want to know why. Ok, you've twisted my arm, I'll tell ya.

A friend of mine wants to put one into a 30 Ford coupe, carbed with header pipes. Thats why. The aluminum valve covers make it look old timey and the overhead cam and higher redline make it a perfect alternative to a chevy smallblock, not to mention a hell of a lot cooler.
