Would a single 4bbl carbureted 383 1960 Dodge be graced by a D500 emblem, or just the ram version?

Also, I seem to remember, that in 1960 the 383 single 4bbl Dodge received Holley carburetors and the 361 the usual Carter AFB. Is that correct?

The Holley carb was a one year only ,1960 on the 383 Polara only, of course it shared a 1 year only air cleaner because of the larger neck size on the Holley.
I cant confirm the D500 option as ram car only ? there are 1960 D500 Polara owners on this link that no doubt can.

Thanks, sorry, should have specified, I meant Dart, if that makes a difference. Yes, that 60 Dodge Holley had a weird feature, one year only. Something about idle adjustment iirc, but I forgot what it was.

Pretty sure Holley was Polara only. Dart and all others got AFB 4bbl carb. Holley for that year only , has the idle control [ slotted screw ] is underneath the air cleaner stud in the carb.

I thought I could find a definitive answer by checking the 1960 Dodge brochures and the 1960 Mopar parts book. I found answers but I would
say nothing definitive, but maybe confusing.

For example, I find evidence of both a 361 Ram-Induction and a 383 Ram-Induction D500 engines. ???

As for single Holley 4 bbl carbs on 383s in 1960, I found evidence of two different ones, i.e. an R1971A and an R2052A. (???)
Both of those are Holley 4160 family. I had to Google 4160 and found this

https://www.holley.com/blog/post/holley_four-barrel_4150_and_4160_ca...

I am dropping the info below and running for shelter.

Thanks. That makes sense. Since the 4bbl 383 was the standard engine for the Polara and very, very few carried the D500 emblem. Weird Chrysler model/sales strategy. The more prestigeous Desoto Adventurers got a 2 bbl 383 as standard. Makes no sense at all

Dave, yes, like for Plymouth, both 361 and 383 Ram versions were available. But Sales brochures often provide misleading, incorrect information.

Sorry, I had to consult my copy of Willem Weertman's Chrysler Engine book to believe that both Dodge and Plymouth had 361 and 383 versions of the long
cross-ram engines available in 1960. (see below)

And then there were the Desoto 383 and the Chrysler 413 versions.

I better quit. My head is starting to hurt (again).

(You were obviously correct. Sorry I doubted you )

D-500 was Ram induction only in 1960, on Dart, Matador and Polara, 361 and 383 versions. ( 361 and 383 were available on Dart, 383 only on US built Polara). As a Side note, the Canadian Polara came with a 361 instead of a 383, and D-500 was not available on the Canadian models. HOWEVER, if they were equipped with a four barrel, they did not get that awful Holley carb, they came with a Carter AFB. I had a Canadian built Polara for many years bought in 1974, 361-4 barrel AFB. I sold it in 1995 to a friend who still owns it.
