I've tried to read up on the date codes associated with the carbs, but I still have questions:

As you know if you have been following along, the 72 Charger SE I purchsed a while back came with a 6 pack setup on it. We also know there were only about 3 72's that somehow made it out of the factree with 6 packs and they have a V in the VIN. Anyway, I've sourced an original manifold and Carb for the car, but I thought I should at least try and understand what I have as far as the 6 Pack setup. I've read on the forum information on date codes etc. So, lets first talk about the manifold. The #'s I see are first a sideways 6, then 2946276. If I understand what I've read this tells me it is a later version that has less of an issue with being porous?


Now lets talk carbs

Back Carb first: I see #'s H14 on one side, then 2489 and under that it is List-4672
Front Carb next: I see #'s H-14 on one side, then 3389 (I think) and under that it is List - 4672
From the little bit I've read the first three #'s are days and the last # is year? So they would be 72 carbs?

Edit as I did find the info for the middle carb after reading R413's post and the picture he provided.
Middle Carb: H-13 List-4670 and date code is 0480

Supposedly there are only two known V code 72 Chargers, one is red,one is yellow. I believe that they are both automatic cars,and both are rallye Chargers. They were both very early built cars. No SE V code Chargers have ever been built that are known of,but as we know you can never say never with Mopars!

Right, and wasn't there a Challenger also? I forget.
 
I've seen the red one. In 1993. In Missouri
 
Ok, I did run across a chart that tells me the setup that came with the car has two rear carbs, my setup has two 4672's which are specific to the rears. Oh well......I also need to take another look at the middle to see if I can see the 4 digit #, so far only 46XX
 
Back of choke tower on center.

look for stamped numbers, the cast in numbers are almost meaningless

yes, this is what I have. The last picture is of the top of the center carb. It didn't have anything on the back of it aside from the H-13 on the left side. The front and rear have the List-4672, which is for rear. So I currently have two rears on the setup.

Wrong side of center carb, they don't stamp any numbers there.

Not a Challenger. It was a 72 Road Runner.
The Road Runner was a red factory sunroof car with an automatic transmission. There was a 4 speed Road Runner V code car that was a magazine test car,but that car has never been seen since 1972.

I saw a picture of a 72 Challenger with a 440 sixpack in it,but I don't think it was ever sold to the public. It probably went to the proving grounds.
 
List # 4672 is for a ‘71 rear outboard, center carb is likely 4670 and the front would have been 4671. These ’71 list numbers were used for years as Chrysler over the counter replacement carbs and direct Holley re-issues. However, they only re-issued the 4672 for both front and rear applications in later years for the 440 applications. The center 440 re-issue was the ‘71 4670. That date code number showing a 9 for the year, could be 1979 or later, wouldn't to be ’69.

The ’72 list numbers are R-6405A for the front, R-6404A for the center, and R-6406A for the rear carb.

This is a 4670 re-issue purchased through Mopar Performance around 2007, date code shows 6 (2006) for the year

So the # above the list # is the actual date of the carb? 1st three digits = day and the last = year correct?

Awesome info, I really appreciate it!

Mis-typed, the list number is separate from the date code, date code normally below the list number. The picture I posted is showing top to bottom, Chrysler part number, list number, date code.
