    I found yours described as a 1 plug, On a site which buys converters.. It said they pay $28.00 for your model..

    Their are many price ranges on ebay, The link below is 1 like yours with an asking price of $70.00.. But that is not always what someone will pay..

    Thanks for your time and help! Getting the info and knowing how to use it is half the battle. I feel better about knowing the Ballpark of what to expect. Becoming more aware of what's really out there, no telling what I've missed in the years of going to garage sales and on property I had permission to metal detect!!! (Once, I brought home a 12x12' metal rollup door for free, just because I happened to ask about it....)

    My scrap metal "fundraiser" profits are going to pay for bags of Sackrete mix, and both 2"x2" & 3"x3" primed metal tubing for building a 10'x24' ground mount solar panel rack that holds 20 solar panels... One hobby helps fund another hobby...

    Thanks again,
    Bill

    That AC mark does appear to be the old AC Delco logo.

    Does it say Delco under the AC?

    I do understand from where you are coming..... I grew up on a 160 acre, dryland farm.....I watched and learned to stretch the dollar, work honestly, steadily, and hard, and to realize that we had to work on most things before, during and after we needed them, just to keep the going... Now in my 60's, I started my solar project dream based on two large, used, 120 watt solar panels I found at the local flea market for $22.50 each....

    The two areas where inflation has hit, and will continue to pull dollars out of your pocket, are Food and Energy. I'm just trying to build it with spare dollars, paying for everything as I go. For a 3-4KW off grid battery system, I started gathering funds and panels/equipment/materials 20 months ago. I wouldn't be working on this solar panel project to replace 1/3 to 1/2 of my utility bill, had I not been willing to do the work myself, and found most every piece of equipment on sale, on close out, or with some kindness and help from others.

    With an attitude and insight like yours, you'll find a way to get what you "need". Learning a little about a lot of things can give you bridges to new areas you not only didn't know about, but also can improve your life as you "see" how things connect to each other and back to you....
    There's a saying that helped me keep me constantly learning new things in fields not normally used in daily life, but seeing how they could be...:

    "Chance favors the prepared Mind."

    Thanks again for your help and the help of other forum members.

    Good Luck with finding and using the chances you'll see are out there,

    There's nothing under those large AC letters.

    Re: Catalytic converter worth?

    Well good luck selling the converter hope u get a good price for it and I hope u get your solar panels up and running here pretty soon. I have always thought about some solar panels to help save energy but I have no idea where to begin so that will never happen. Anyways good luck on any future scrapping adventures. A few years ago I knew next to nothing about scraping. Just about eerything I know now I learned from the guys on here. Check out this guys website it is full of information
    www.scrapmetaljunkie.com
    Learned alot from him as well. Any questions ask him he's on here sometimes but I think his site keeps him busy these days.

    [/quote] Bill, My wife went through many years of college.. I went through all her old books.. There are places to sell them.. You get less cause they pay shipping..

    There are places you can sell your converter same way.. But it's up to you how you sell it.. If you have an ebay account, Or know someone who will sell it for you.. I would say that is where you will get the maximum price from it..

    It looks like a bead

    It looks like a bead worth about 50 or so dollars

    Here's a pic showing the $1 converter and a very worn silver plated platter found at the same garage sale. Except for the Zinc/Pewter handles I'll remove, the platter's base metal shows to be copper and weighs just over 5 lbs.... It was priced at $4.

    For a $5 cost, maybe I can still make a little from selling both on these along with the other scrap I've collected with my next trip to the scrap yard....

    Thanks for starting this thread. I just replaced mine. The new ones cost $490 and right after I bought the price jumped to $630. I've listed my old ones (2) and its already up to $116. crazy. I never would have thought of Ebay.
