Default Wrong carburetor??

I've got a little time finally to work on my junkyard-find 64. I got it started but blows out lots of white exhaust. Checked carburetor and found float valve not working - overflowing gas pouring into carb. Then I noticed this is a carter carburetor. Is that the right carburetor for this car? I really want to restore this vehicle to original if possible. Engine is 390.

The original carburetor was an Autolite 4100.

Get a new carb you run a risk of fire with the old one over flowing
