Any advice on what a Westinghouse K-1 triple valve is worth?
I need one or more for restoration work.
A friend has one or more.
Neither of us has the foggiest notion of value.
They are in the condition of "working when removed from car"

Thanks in advance!

I have found it to be true that when selling anything....it is worth whatever somebody is willing to pay for it.

They will not be worth much to most operators, but worth something to a few others, some of which are not far from you and easy to reach through ATRRM, Georgetown Loop, and Jason Midyette for starters. For regulated operators, converting to ABD style valves makes life a lot easier - test to failure, then replace with off the shelf supported rebuilt cores from more than one possible source. I don't know of any K1 parts being produced right now.......

In my opinion they are priceless. I would hope anyone just hanging onto one would be willing to either donate it or trade it for a future draft pick.
