What's your budget and intended goal?
On your stock manifold the MC 2100 will bolt up but the later stock MC2150 (yours) with the alt compensator is a better/more user friendly carb. Easy to tune and cheap/easy to rebuild. Holley I'm sure has some 2v options. I think member here "Babywag" has a 500cc 2v Holley for sale in the classifieds. A used MC2150 should be easy/cheap($25-$50) to find here. You can rebuild it for another $40-$50. The 2150 is a very good user friendly easy maint carb for all around drivability for the stock 360. Yeah I'm a fan of cheap/easy that works well.

I agree. Another AMC Jeep 2150 is a cheap, easy and effective replacement.
Of course a bit depends what is broken and what caused the damage.

I have used two carburetor shops in the Jacksonville, FL area with very good results, both rebuilding the Motorcraft 2V and 4V. National Carburetor and All-American Carburetor. Both are on-line and do mail order. Never had a complaint with either Motorcraft carb, or Holley for that matter. Seen a few Edelbrocks who don't like off-road angles.
