Beginning to think about replacing the carb on the 390 whenever I get it back together. The PO had put a Holley 730 on it vs the std Ford 4300. Problem is, the Holley has never run right even after I rebuilt it. I have a Holley on each of the other 2 (600's). Have been told the Edlebrock works better. I'm not going for concours showing, just want a drivable car w/ some spunk to it and wasn't sure whether I should stay w/ Holley, go original or try Edlebrock? Any suggestions?

Carb selection is almost as personal as paint color selection, anymore. I have an Edelbrock on my '66 and my daughter's '69 and am so pleased with them, I doubt I'll ever go back to a Holley.

Try taking one of the 600s off of one of your cars and trying it on the 390. 700 and above is fairly large and I think that it may be to large for the 390 if it is fairly stock, normally they are just right at 600cfm.
