Stampings are weird and bowls dont look correct. Examine very closely.

Current Value?
$1500-$2000 IF all correct.

Sadly 3x2 parts like correct bowls are very hard to find, so act accordingly.

Drew, I think the question for him should be proximately how much would you charge to make that system work correctly because I doubt he is looking for anything concourse.

I purchased the set up. In wonderful condition. He pulled them off of a 65 or 66 GT 350 back in 1968. He was a mechanic at local Ford Dealership. The owner of the Shelby was the son of the owner of the dealership. He was given the setup by the owner. Kept all these years . He did have them on his 1940 Ford hot rod for a short period.

Why sure bigfoot. I paid 900.00. Up in the air about installing these or a paxton.  Any thoughts?

Eh. I dont really advertise like that.
People know who I am, if that was the question, I assume hed have messaged me privately. I gave the price above as what the going rate seems to be.
$900 for that setup is smoking. Id buy 25 of those setups tomorrow for $900 each.

Great score!  They run really well. If those are in working order, Id just run them.


To the next question. Run these or a Paxton. Honestly, two separate worlds. The real magic of these 3x2 setups are the visual appeal, and oddly enough the economy and torque benefits. Id prefer three tiny 2v carbs over a single 750 anyday.
My carb mentor drove and still drives a 289 3x2 setup in his daily driver 64 Ranchero just for these reasons.

On an unrelated note. If you do go Paxton and do not use these, I literally have a dozen customers nagging me about these setups and frankly, I dont find enough of them.
Let me know and Id be happy to put you in touch with them.

Maybe fab up a custom 3X2 Paxton bonnet!
