factory duel carb w/manifold question

my friend does not have internet right now so im helping him post about his carbs. he got a early 70's fiat spider, in the trunk was a factory duel carb manifold with webber carbs. i have found some stuff but not much info on how rare, what it is worth, what car it came from. any help would be great.

Re: factory duel carb w/manifold question

the value of things like this is tricky, in reality its worth whatever someone is willing to pay, same as anything else. its almost certainly a rare bit of kit, but i dont know how much demand there will be for it so its very hard to say. i doubt you'll get more than a couple of hundred dollars because at the end of the day its just a couple of carbs on an inlet manifold and its a standard part. on the other hand there will be someone out there who's desperately searching for this exact part and they're willing to pay a lot more, the problem is finding them

Re: factory duel carb w/manifold question

I was wondering if anyone knows the best places to sell this item. i have it listed on this site but i dont know what site deals with the 70's spiders or sales of used parts. any help would be great.

Looks like the manifold from a BC series 124 Sport (1600).
