carbed motor in a \'89 suburban?

Does anyone know or heard of a carbed motor in an '89 suburban? I've had a couple people tell me they exist. Can anyone confirm this?

<font color=green>I'm sure that they exist, but they didn't leave the factory that way, at least not for the US market...

Thanks Shaggy.
A couple people told me that there were a few that left the factory that way. I was hoping for the best. I'm wanting to put a carbed small block in my '89 S-10. So, I'm looking for anything that had a carbed small block. Even if it was a dump truck or anything.

<font color=blue>Well I can tell you you could get a carb'd motor in some cab and chassis trucks, Between 88-91. (They had to be the old square body style) My dad had an 89R3500 C&amp;C with a carb'd 454 in it. Bought it right off the lot that way[img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]. So you could find a motor out of one of those trucks. Other then that, You're looking for any 73-86 truck, To get a carb.</font color=blue>
