Re: Original carburetor worth??????
Depends,bbc carbs go for more then sbc carbs.
When talking chevelle's 68 is a less desirleable yr in general then 69 & esp 70 .
I have seen core q-jets in good cond with all parts present but needing complete resto/rbld go for $600-800 and the go for over $1,200 in restored cond for L34-L35-LS5 BBC'S and then same basic type q-jet restored to same lvl for a SBC of same yr go for $350-$400.
In ebay's case it also depends on if more then 1 person is bidding on for ex a q-jet for a 70 chevelle 454 LS5 resto that need it for a correct #'s matching resto.
If its a q-jet your looking for i have 3 gm factory NEW/NOS q-jet's avail in original boxes that are correct factory service replacment q-jets for multiple sbc & bbc in 68 & 69 and would part with 1 of them for the right offer ,PM me if interested .
BTW,just an FYI if you find a core q-jet that it costs approx $325 to have a q-jet core that's complete & in good cond completely rblt/replated/and prim throttle shafts rebushed to look & wrk better then new @ SMI/Sean Murphy Induction.
