I know I was able to run a car carb on my 226 flathead 6, I only had it on a few weeks before I could rebuild the original carb. I have had both for a V8 and the only difference I noticed was the air horn, like your guy said, you won't be able to use the truck air cleaner.

The car carb also doesn't have the hand throttle linkage.
