i have an engine that was included with my jeep that i have no intention of rebuilding/using, the engine has an edelbrock rb4 intake manifold on it and a holley 600 carb(4160).  they would need to be cleaned up but nothing major.  i figure someone on here would be able to use it if interested, or i could ebay them, i just dont know what they are worth.  i also have some edelrock valve covers off the same engine, they are the old fashioned "finned". thanks

The valve covers are worth a small fortune.  Esp if in good shape.
The R4B depends on condition, but probably no less than 300 unless it's trashed........ also depends a bit if it's got the AMC number on it or not, at least some folks care.

They actually make the Eddy finned valve covers again brand new.  I bought a set a year or two ago for $225 shipped and they are identical to the ones that were impossible to find not all that long ago.

Someone here said "they aren't quite the same", implied they weren't as heavy or something......... but I've never compared them.

I have an old and a new set of the Edelbrock finned covers.  The only difference I can tell is the old ones say "Rambler" inside, the new ones say "AMC".

I agree that a part numbered R4B will start around $300, the one on my AMX I got for $275.  I nave a non-numbered 1970-up that I got for under $200.

448 4410 = R4B Gen III (70-87)
448 5729 = R4B "Mystery" Part Number

need to see pictures to be sure which one is it.  Underside pictures showing the bolt holes alignment are the most revealingl.

Not a mystery, it's a 1970 intake - exactly what I have.
Here, I flipped the photo of mine so you could read the number without cranking your neck 180 degrees:
