Suitable Replacement for a C6ZF-F Carb

Appreciate the knowledge shared since I discovered this board 24 hours ago!
I am refreshing my Hertz car I've had for 30 years. It has a Holly carb which is incorrect. No way I can afford the right carb (C6ZF-F). Would anyone have any recommendations for a suitable autolite carb that a normal person can afford? Hopefully with 600cfm and 1.12 venturis.
Thanks for helping the new guy out.

Most any 4100 with 1.12 venturis from 1965 and 1966 can be made to work although they will have an automatic choke. This can be somewhat converted with a manual choke kit although it will be obvious to anyone in the know. There are a couple of modifications needed to make the manual choke conversion fit the casting of the carburetor. They will, of course, have the wrong boosters but you can pretty much jet around them.
