Holley List 4088, C8AF-9510-AD, on ebay

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

Are these the only known date codes?

705
7A2
7A3
833
834
934 - service replacement
962 - service replacement
964 - service replacement

There has to be at least one earlier date, anyone have one? Or one that isn’t on this list?

There is an earlier date code, I think it is 774. Very rare, there were only a handful of factory show units that were built early enough to need one of these.

There is also the service replacement 4088 carburetor date coded 934. I have one of these surplus to my needs.

Yes I am painfully aware as I’m sure you know. I just didn’t know what the actual date was. I can keep holding out for a miracle though. Maybe there is one out there somewhere.

Yes, your car is one of the few. I've never seen one, it's going to be a small miracle if you ever find one.

Skinners GT-E book lists the secondary metering block as 4861. That’s an error right? Shouldn’t it be 4841?

4841 is correct.

All,
I have the 1979 REV 2 edition of the Holley parts book, part number 36-51. I can tell you every part number and all sizes of jets, power valves, squirters and so on. This book covers almost every muscle car Holley carb ever manufactured.

There is a pair of metering blocks on eBay if anyone needs them. I’m not sure how to get a link on an iPad.
