    The one on the far right is a q-jet, the rest I would guess Chrysler origins for. None of those 3 look familiar to me. I would think the q-jet would be worth 30 or so, they seem to sell for more than that on c-list for core condition,.

    The one on the left kinda looks like a Carter Thermoquad, but it's hard for me to see them. Quadrajet's a way better carburetor in my opinion, which there's one in the lot, but those would probably be worth something to someone doing a proper resto or repair in the Mopar world.

    No, of course not. Glass fuel filters and plastic carbs are what all the cool kids are running.

    Yep, those are Chrysler Carbs. Carter AFB and AVS on the 2 center ones IIRC and then the Q Jet. I'm pretty sure the center 2 are not Thermoquads by the shape, but the pics aren't good enough for a positive ID. The 1st is an AFB though which is what the Eddy Carb is derived from.

    Center ones look like 4 jets, the predecessor to the Quadrajet. Legit appears to be old Carter AFB, same as the current Edelbrock.
    You can get your money back out of them plus some.
    AFB will have code stamp on front left of base. 4 jets should have a tag but most were lost.

    I'd agree with those center being 4 jets. I wasn't sure what they were called, but after I made that post and got to looking at some of my old Carb pics. They were carbs if you went to Pep Boys for example for a Qjet replacement, you could have ended up with one of these.

    If you pull the numbers off the Quadrajet you can look it up and find out what "vintage" carb you have.

    Unless you need to match an older engine for restoration, the newer quads (about mid 70's and on) are usually less likely to leak, and the next generation (late 70's to mid 80's) have some additional adjustments that can make them a little easier to tune (like external access to the the adjustable part throttle (APT) setting).

    There were also a few electronically controlled Quads, but I think the electric solenoid was emissions related and didn't really do that much for tuning.
