The 38DGS/DGES/DGAS has 38mm throttle plates.
It has 24 and 26mm chokes that are cast into the the carb as it is based on a modified DGV casting.

Essentially it is a synchronous throttle version (uses gears instead of a linkage) of the 32/36 DGV carb. The larger plates are nice but having the same sized chokes makes it a marginal flow improvement.
If you are looking for hens teeth, there used to be a weber 40DFV carb that had 40mm plates and larger chokes that was a performance option for the european Ford Capri with the 2.6 and 2.8 engine.

Bill, I think the Weber you found fits the description perfectly.

It would be very interesting to do a back to back comparison between the stock 2 bbl, the Weber 38 that Bill found, and an Offy/Holley on an otherwise stock engine.

You're right about that, Todd. I thought of that later, and also that the early ones did come with that Weber/Holley two Bbl.

They are supposed to be good for 125 hp.
