Here is what I believe to be a new record sale for a rebuilt C5OF-J carburetor. It was sold 7-26-2012 on Ebay by Ebay seller somestuff4unme for$3,000.00:

That price seems way off the charts, and probably is a new "record"...A polished 4100 looks nice, but it won't run any better than one that's got the correct "natural" finish.

I know polishing doesn't ruin it, but nonetheless it looks ruined to me.

I'd like to see the carb up close. The area where the numbers are, looks like it was welded up and restamped. Of course, it could just be casting marks. You can't be sure by the pictures.

Due to the fact that the carburetor body has the proper choke lever stop, I have high confidence that this carburetor is correct. I have seen casting flaws like this on several of these carburetors. The stamping looks good to me.

The pictures do not really cover some things well on this auction. The carburetor does have the wrong accelerator pump actuating lever and it has the wrong style clip in the accelerator linkage rod to the throttle lever. The proper clip come in all carburetor rebuild kits. It is also missing the choke cable mounting bracket. It has an incorrect pivot setup where the choke rod attaches to the choke plate lever. A lot of errors for the price.

At that price, it needs to be better than perfect.

Agree with that...I'd expect to get a complete carb for that price.

My thought is that this is just a way for the seller to advertise their services as all of their other listings are not this absurd.

These absurd prices just irritate me. I have been looking for a C50F-J as my car is a late 65 and can't seem to find one with a realistic price. Oh well, one of these days I will find one where the seller isn't asking an unrealistic price.

The real irony is that when our kars were new, many AUTOLITE 4100's were taken off and replaced with a Holley and an aftermarket aluminum intake manifold. In 2017, we are lucky to find the originals for sale at any price.
