The LIST 4053 came as OE on 1968-69 Chevrolet 302, 340, 427 and L-28 engines, auto or manual transmissions.

Let me know if you need more and I'll try to dig it up.

Interesting post I just picked up the same carb a week ago for 5 bucks. I planned on using it for parts but when I found out what it was off of I think maybe I'll try to sell it to someone doing a restoration.

odb93,

I can't say based on my reference materials but if you'll make some measurements I can probably give you a pretty good idea.

I'll need both the diameter of the venturi narrow points (front and rear- they may be different) and the throttle bores. One way to measure venturi narrow points is to bend a stiff piece of wire into a U-shape, 'adjust' it until it just 'fits' the narrow point, then measure. It won't be exact by any means but should be plenty close enough.

You can post your measurements here then drop me an email at eparkerii@carolina.rr.com to remind me to check the forum.

I'll be happy to help you however I can.

If he is right on the listing I wouldn't mess with it. You could make a killing selling it to a purist for a resto job. Just a thought, it is insane what guys will pay for that kind of stuff.

Slam,

What would you say is fair market value?

I am not sure what the value would be. I would check around on the net and see what you can come up with. Check some of the closed auctions from ebay and stuff like that. Also some of the car clubs post that kind of info. If a person is building a true #'s matching car that is the carb they have to have. There aren't tons of the 302 parts around , or any of those others for that matter so that means that I would say the value could be up there a bit. I know on some of the mopars a rebuildible core has gone for 500.00 or better.
