Dude, you aren't kidding. 69 Judge 4spd Qjets (273# IIRC) are going for around $5K
So we found a SR Qjet and sent it to my carb guy Eric Jackson at www.vintagemusclecarparts.com His work is absolutely beautiful, and they run as good as they look.
The Qjet on my silver car is a late 70s, maybe 80 Chevy. Runs like a top other than it leaks down after a couple of days (wells are JB welded) and you have to crank the hell out of it to start it. NBD though.
