I did the reserch on this and it is the REAL DEAL

It is a service replacment carb corect for any 73 or 74 455 SD engine
If your Trans Am had carb problems this is what the dealer would have replaced it with . They are the only true 800CFM carbs produced
they were also available over the counter at the dealer for a short period and are verry rare like the origanals.

I have seen these sell for almost as much as the factory installed units in the $1500.00 - $1800.00  range
. The fuel inlet is corect for the SR carb as Rochester added this to except the larger fuel filter .

I am not sure how you came up with this being a Buick piece . Check your numbers and or source.

If bought at the right price youd be a great investment.
