I'm wondering what the value of a carb that I have at home would be. It's a 600 cfm VS off of a 1970 Mach I 351C. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I can get them tonight, if it will help. The carb is in great shape, and has been rebuilt (I'm currently using it on my 79 Pace Car). The only problem is that the float level adjustment on the front bowl is stripped, so I've replaced it and the leMans fuel transfer line with a standard Holley front bowl and dual feed inlet. I can get a replacement bowl for the carb though without much trouble and put it back to factory specs. The tag is still with the carb.

The reason that I'm asking is that a carb guy who looked at it when I was having the trouble with the bowl seemed pretty excited to see this carb, and said it would probably be worth some cash. If I could get more for it than a new Holley 600 would cost I may just take it off my car and buy a new carb for it, and sell this one.

Waddaya experts think?

Ian, without a FoMoCo or Holley list number it is impossible to help you. Who knows what the carbs origin is as no 70 351 ever came with a Holley.

Here's a sale you can track on e-bay ...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1865208999
If this is the same carb you have, I'm afraid they're not very sought after. I sold a complete one in need of rebuilding recently, and I was more than happy to get $80 for it!!! I was expecting somewhere around $30.

Hmmm, that looks nothing like the carb that this data came off of. My carb is a Holley with the front and rear bowls just like an 1850 vacuum secondary. We used a bowl off of a 750 when the front bowl started leaking. The original bowl even has "Holley" embossed on it.

According to my Holley "bible of numbers" these carb is a OE Ford service carb for 69 Fairlanes,Comets, Mustangs&Cougars with the Ford kickdown provision, & is rated at 600 cfm.Not a really valuable factory application, but certainly worthy of a rebuild kit. Sorry, but you likely won`t be able to retire from the proceeds of the sale of this carb.

That's ok Rory! I was just curious, as this fellow in Saskatoon seemed pretty excited to see this carb. Oh well. It's all rebuilt and working great on my Pace Car right now, so I guess I'll leave it where it is.

Thanks for the info!

It's a service carb that FoMoCo contracted Holley to produce as a generic replacement for a bunch of 4300 Autolites.
