Default Are there any good prices on Champion 3X plugs?

From time to time there have been Champion 3X plugs for sale at a good price. I have not seen any specials lately. The current price at Snyder's is $36.00.

I never had very good luck with Champion plugs. In any car I owned.

Always used Autolite. TT10 for the Model A. Buy them at my local Ford dealership. They tend to run a little cold though.

Thumbs up Re: Are there any good prices on Champion 3X plugs?

I use the modern Champion replacement, W18, for the 3X. NAPA carries them for, I believe, $7.00 each.

Yes, that's about the prices I've seen. I haven't watched lately, but I'd check ebay and amazon, and you should find them for about $16 or so each.

Amazon $40.31 plus tax plus shipping $15.29

Ebay I saw a pair of used corroded for $15.95 who would waste their money on those unless you really were after only the porcelin?

I'd sure like to find them for $16 a piece, I'd order a set right now.

The last 2 sets I got for free------ one set from trash can at Hershey, the other at car show , I had followed the car into the show, gave it a good distance following because of the black smoke, when I saw the plugs getting changed and the old ones being walked to a trash can I followed, put them in my car and burned them clean--- with 2 xtra sets I have a lifetime supply
