Leftover GTO engine parts, how much are they worth?

I have the choke coil, Part number 7028097, stamped 8097, and the 'vacuum tree' or thermostatic vacuum control (sensor) as I've seen it called, both off an original 1968 WT code 400 out of a 68 GTO. I've seen some NOS Pontiac choke coils on ebay selling for $150, and new replacements for $37, and I still haven't seen a pontiac 400 vacuum tree for sale (if that is what its even called.) The coil looks like it's in good condition with no rust but it is a little dirty. Same with the vacuum tower.

How much are these pieces worth?

Price is always dependent upon supply and demand. Slap 'em on ebay and see what happens if you dont like the result just be the highest bidder to keep 'em. Judging from other I believe youll fall inbetween the numbers you give.

Ok, I will do that. Does anyone know the actual name for the vacuum tree?

If I remember right its a thermal switch, it opens vacuum when the engine reaches a certain temp. No idea how much it is worth, I think I have 7 or 8 of them laying around here.
