Is this a late 50s early 60s 190, 220, 230 Solex Carb?

Came across this in the back of a VW bus that had been parked for 20+ years, thought it looked like the Solex Carbs I had seen from an early 60s 220 many years ago. Anyone recognize it?

It looks like a Solex carburetor 5JS. This one does not look like the Solex Type 32 or 34 which would likely be from a Ponton era to Fintail six cylinder. Most of the Ponton and Fintails have dual carburetors. The fuel intake port on this one is in the middle so more likely used in single carb vehicle. Solex was used on many German cars. It could be from a BMW, Audi, Porsche or a VW?
