Will Carter founded the Carter Carburetor Company in 1909 and the company operated until 1984. Carter carburetors were known for sophisticated engineering and high quality. Some of the notable Carters were the W-1, the carburetor that ushered in the downdraft era starting in 1932 on Chevrolet carbs. Before that, most carburetors were of the updraft design. Carter built the first successful 4 barrel carburetor, the WCFB (Will Carter Four Barrel) which first appeared in 1953 on Buick cars. The all-aluminum AFB (Aluminum Four Barrel) was a big innovation in 1957, and lives on today under the Edelbrock name. Finally, the radical Carter Thermoquad with its phenolic float bowl appeared in 1971 and stayed until the company closed in the 80s.
