What should a mechanically restored 4150 go for? Itís a 600 cfm for a 68 390 and has no Holley coloring. The guy wants $100?

At $100 for a Ford Holley for a 390 is not bad. Its not the best carb in the world, but if you a going toward concours correct it worth it. Just make sure the front bowl is threaded on both sides at the fuel inlet for the correct fuel line. They were also notorious for wear in the primary throttle shaft. I've got one on the shelf that was rebuilt and plated by Pony Carb, sucked air big time at the shaft area. The only way I could get it to run was by swapping a base plate from a relatively new 1850. Talked to the Holley tech service first and they had no idea if it would work or not. It worked good, even gained a PCV port in the carb base.

It?s duel feed with center hung bowls, isn?t that good? Other than the ware what else could be a problem? I would think that any carb that?s 30-35 years old would have ware on it. Would it be worth it to have it machined and bushings installed?

That is a great price for that carb if that is indeed what it is. Pony Carb gets over $300 for just a core charge.

Is the 3796 carb for a 68 4spd 390gt or is it 3795? Iím just trying to get some of the original parts for my FB before they get even more pricey in case I want to go back to stock with the car!

3795 is the stick and 3796 is the auto.
