Those wheels in those sizes are pretty hard to find. More common was the 14 X 7 and 15 X 7. As a reference, I was asking $200 for the set of 14 X 7 chrome Magnums on my '73, but only had 1 bite. I guess mine will be used on a trailer, spray booth wheels or something around my house.

The Vector wheels you have are aluminum wheels. The Magnum 500's are steel and they weigh a ton...
 
I have 2 14x6 Magnums that I'm hanging onto if you want to make it a full set of 14x6!

Is the Holy spreadbore 4300 a good carb?
And what cars did they come in?

From what research I have been able to do-the 4300 is a "good" carb. The 4300 D is a better carb (still havent figured out the diff), and the 4350 is a piece... Also, from what I know-and my knowlege may not be complete, the spreadbores started in 1970 or 1971 and went up until the late 70's. You can find alot of 4350's, they mostly came on Lincolns-or at least they seem to be the majority of the ones for sale.

is that the trunk floor you got from desert valley?   I would love to see some pics of the removal and install.  i have to do some work on my trunk floor as well.   I have a good doner floor just not sure how exactly i want to go about doing it.   Did you drill out all the spot welds or just cut it out to match?

Yes, that is the floor from desert valley-unfortunately the guys at my shop have been sitting on it since feb and put it in like ninjas, I wanted to get in progress photos, but didnt. I think they did drill out the spots welds though.

difference between the 4300 and the 4300d is this.
4300 = squarebore with 605cfm rating
4300D = Spreadbore and 750cfm rating

Had my guys pull all the trim off of this, going to send to the guy in the vendor section, will he work on the head light chrome as well, do you think. Plus, I think I am going to do the blue laser strip. And they pulled the dash pad out as well, gonna send that to CA to be redone.
