Your's is 10 yrs. old, so I guess you assumed mine was 10 yrs old too? Must have been that new math.
I've owned my '71 since 1973, and the Holley was on it when I bought it used in 1973. It got replaced in 2000 when I put that first POS Edelbrock on. Not sure when the original owner put the Holley on the 427, as I never asked when I bought it.
Yes, with a lot of street/strip miles on the car, I finally wore the throttle shaft to a little excessive slop and decided to not bush it.
