Your Charger was one of the few ’69s to be equipped with a Holley 4-Bbl., itwas an R-4440A, Mopar P/N 2946538. The choke thermostat assembly was2843156.
Your only hope for these are swap meets, or internet sites such as eBay(www.ebay.com, set up a “saved search”), or place a wanted ad onwww.moparts.com. NOS ones will be tough, used is more likely. But the carb, if complete, can be restored to nearly-new, if you can’t find a shop to doit for you down under, you can always send it to Holley’s Custom Shop, or (270)782-2900.
