Pre 1964 with the big accelerator pump really aren't worth much, Their still good carbs, just not collectible.

A regular Mustang 1.08, $125 is about right for Ebay, they go for anywhere from $75 to $200 and more depending on condition.

Hipo mustang, I've seen go for $1000.

64.5 - 68 full size 1.12 go for $50-$125

It also depends on condition.

.....a proper, clean, correct, complete Mustang 1.08. It is rare that you can pick one up off ebay for near $125.00. Even Pony, I think, is getting $250 for a non-smog, not parts counter SBF, not California BB smog, 1.08.

Problem is with ebay, it is a real grab bag. Sellers often totally misrepresent the uses for what they are selling or even if a proper part number, they do not care to know if they contain the correct internals.

...and as you know, replacement boosters are about as scarce as hens teeth.

If you can assure a potential buyer that your 1.08 is complete and correct in every way, you have at least, a $250 + unit.

Check out my previous post for my opinion of Pony Carbs.

It's a business for him so he's going to charge premium for his cores. KP does a concourse Restoration for $185 and you'll notice that Pony will only pay $40 when buying a 1.12 and $5 for a pre 64 1.12

As Boomyal noted, when buying a carb off Ebay people know it's Crapshoot as to whether you get good complete Carb or not. You may be able to convince people it's worth more by nameing the Rebuilder, noteing whether it's been replated or not, showing detailed up close pics, giving the Carb number and what it was original on.
