The Tiger Moth was half automatic on carb heat. It was permanently on except
for the final half inch of throttle movement which would operate a flapper
plate to allow direct cold air in..

I always assumed that the decision to use the 172SP in FS was to 
help sell them! Cessna presumably put money into developing FS9 
as a quid pro quo.  I agree though - there are extremely few 
light aircraft flying without carb heat.  I believe some recent 
models (Katana? can't remember!) are arranged to have permanently 
heated air induction manifolds.
