I have a Holley carb list 4346. Classic Ind. shows a reproduction price of $899.99. The one that I have is mostly complete. It is missing the choke plate. Also the tube for the back bowl "I believe it is the overflow tube" anyway the aluminum around the tube is cracked. I would think that it could be fixed. It needs to be rebuilt, I have the kit.

4346 3959164 GE 425 COPO
396 375 L78
L89
Above is what I have found it to have been have been installed on.

The 4346 was the replacement carb Holley sold for any HIPo motor in 69 from the 302 to the 427. With a cracked body it not worth a lot.

There should be a date code on that carb. I'm guessing classic is selling repops with correct date codes for that price. I was told about $700 for a new one at a local speed shop a few months ago when I got my rebuild kit. They did come on several vintage HP engines in '69 it wasn't just an over the counter replacement. I have a '69 chassis service manual that shows the -9146 4346 on the 370hp 350, 375hp 396 and 425hp 427.

Do a search on holley carbs in this forum and I think you will find a thread with a name and number of a real good carb guy. Give him a call and find out if it's fixable. I bet he could give you an ides about it's value. too.

The date is really important. If it has a good 69 date it should be worth at least 200.00

Would that be to use as parts Charlie or to actually rebuild?

Pulled the numbers from the carb and they are as follows List 4346---3959164 GE----FA3.

I also have a factory Aluminum Intake 3932472 which crosses to a 69-70 Z28 302/350. Only thing is that is has been polished. Will that kill the value of it that bad??

Dennis you know better than to think they used the same carb on a small and big block from the factory. The L-78 and the L-72 would have been different carbs not even considering the 370 HP small block.

Actually Mike I do believe it came on the 3 engines I mentioned above. It's a very tunable vacuum sec carb. I own one and on a SBC have gotten as good as 23 mpg on the hwy with 3:73's and an OD tranny. I know you know how vacuum sec's work and being an on demand sec system a sbc may never open them 100%. It's almost identical to the 4053 that came on the 302 in '69.
