They make okay power, but short of a Performer RPM. It'll likely bring enough to buy a good intake and pay a fair amount of the money on a good carb.

More for a restoration.  Research it and find out exactly what it's worth.  There is better if performance is what you're after.

It will be worth a lot to a 289 Shelby or the Hi-po restorers..  As for actual use and power.. they are good when ported and will carry a 7300 rpm levels on a good carb.

But restore people are looking for old stuff... yes??

They are not good. Period. The original torquer was decent...so is the Weiand Xcellerator.  But the II... sell it!

That depends on how much hood clearance you have. Nate has had good results with a ported Funnel Web, but they are tall. A Victor Jr is a proven performer. With a little cleanup, a Weiand X-Celerator can do well while still providing decent hood clearance. A Super Victor is really just too big for your heads.

Funnelweb if you have the hood. Xcellerator if you do not.

The only way to know is to try. Its just the nature of the game.

Something bigger than a 600 would make a difference on a performance 347, especially with a dual plane.
