Question about 4 barrel Holley carburetor...
« on: September 16, 2017, 01:29:44 PM »
Going through my old parts that I took off the car a week ago and found something that I forgot about.

When I was working on my San Jose February 1966 Automatic K-code car, I replaced the carburetor that was on the car with the correct Autolite 4100 carb.

The one I took off though was definitely of that era, it was a four barrel Holley 4118 "L" dated. Does any one know if this is worth anything. It needs to be cleaned up but worked just fine when it was on the car.

Thanks,

Jason

 Hi there, the 4118 Holley that you are describing is an over-the-counter replacement for the early Shelby GT 350s, aimed at the 65-66s. I'm pretty sure it's a 725 CFM carb. I'm not sure what the L stands for that you have mentioned? I have been running one of these carbs on my 350  Clone since 2004. It's a great running carb but more suited for a well modified 289 as it is just too much for a standard 289. I believe the carb is likely worth anywhere from $100-$200 depending on how bad someone wants it. I have two others as spares and lately I  have been seeing  these prices slowly rising for these carbs . Folks here will likely not praise this carb because it is not an original, not even original to a Shelby, but it's a good carburetor nonetheless .

Thanks for the responses, just wanted to make sure before I did anything with it that I wasn't sitting on something, I'm just going to throw it up on eBay and see what happens...

Thanks,

Jason
