Every year Pontiac Qjet is a "one year" Qjet, exc the 8273 which rolled over in usage from '68 to '69. Of all the std transmission base 400 engine "263" Qjets, nice original '67 model cores have sold for the most as nice cores fir the last 25 years. After that model, there is a considerable price drop, for nice clean rebuildable '68-72 year usage "263" core Qjets. None of these bring anywhere near the prices of the highly sought after original usage RAM AiR Qjets, or 455HO or 455 SD carbs...bringing thousands of dollars.
Am in the market for a 7041263, working on a '71, ready to pay market price in the low 3's if the above Qjet is not a water dog, & metering wells have not been leaking and experienced a backfire/melted the bottom plug areas in the floatbowl. Have one of those. Am fully prepared to have to have throttle shaft bushings replaced, special helicoil installed in the fuel inlet, and have the carb redichromated, then rebuild. That's typical, and where the expense adds up... & total expenditure gets over $500.
