Thats what the demand is THAT particular week. Things change week to week, if you have the right person looking for what your selling a particular week, you could make a lot more or a lot less depending. BUT in general I agree with your statement as well, should sell in the ball park. 427 King isn't in a big hurry to sell anything, it's his stuff, if its rare he could double or triple the asking price, and thats ok,  its his prerogative.

If you take a supply and demand class youll see that whenever you have items no one else has, you can ask whatever you want,and will eventually get it.  Last time i checked with the outfit everyone refers people to on this site they wanted 5500.00 ,but didnt have it in stock.......... So you can pay me 3850 direct, or buy mine for 5500 thru them. I suspect the 5500 route is less painful for some.

I believe you mean you can pay me $4550.00 direct, as the drive belt in the above photos is not included for the $3850.00 price.  If anyone wants the drive belt too, Chuck is only asking $700.00 for it!

$4550.00 is more than a '68 Z/28 cost new!

Thank God I don't need a smog system for my Z, but if I did I'd buy it from Jerry and save $3000.00.

There may be demand for the smog system, that doesn't necessarily translate to a demand just for yours.

 Just cant seem to find the exact ad  for an untouched as new  Day 1 takeoff system with dated belt for 1550.00 that you are referring  to. Can you post it ?

There may be even more demand for a restored unit from Jerry for the $1695. I would venture a guess that you could buy a unrestored set up from Jerry for even less. But he advertises them restored because there is more demand for such a unit.  Lets face it,  you put a nice restored unit on your car, as the years tick by it is going to look more and more like your day one unit anyways, so why pay more?

So you believe  you can get a complete ,fully restored and replated original 68 69 Z28 setup with NO  repro parts for 1695?Huh?    Considering  a real  pulley alone goes for 900-1000.00 used on a 69 Z ,that kind of sheds some light on your incorrect claim.

I think the consensus is it money better spent. It isn't worth it to me to buy either. If I would have bought a 69 Camaro new I would have taken it off as well, and wouldn't have thought twice about it. If the one Jerry puts together passes his muster, I don't know what benefit you are getting by spending more.

Exactly my point.  You dont even know or care if the setup has repro parts in it, you only care whos selling it.....comparing a price of a system with repro parts to an as new dfday 1 takeoff and saying a few years from now they will be the same  is ignorant.  Now maybe we can go back to the content of the original post

Just about all the parts that were missing on my engine (pulleys, brackets, etc...) have now been replaced with repop. I'm sorry, but I refuse to pay STUPID prices on an original pulley, when a $50 reproduction will work just fine. Sure, I may have to "adjust" it a bit, but once it's on, no one's the wiser.

There are lots of people in the world that demand this kind of money for original smog setups, engine blocks, rear axles, or whatever, which is why my car will NEVER be "restored". Being one of the 99 percent, I just can't afford them. But unfortunately, there will always be people out there with loads more money than brains, so these parts will sell, but really, at what price? I know I'd not want to have this kind of reputation.

Ed, Well said. It's the stupid prices for "rare original" stuff that makes me glad I only have a 307 glide. I will never do a restoraton beyond driver quality. I will upgrade as I see fit for convenience, relayability and safety.  On my list are fuel injection, disk brakes, & fold down back seat.
