    Mine I spent $300 with shipping in perfect unmodified condition on Marketplace this past year. However I have seen them listed around $400-500 but if you are spending that much buy a new intake and forgot nostalgia... personally anything more than $350 its not worth it.

      When NHRA accepted them to race Stock 5 or 6 years ago = The Immediate shot up
      to $800 to $1000 for nice one. A year or two ago NHRA Disallowed them and they dropped
      to $400 to $500. I our extensive testing they made NO MORE power than the stock intake
      particularly if it had be "Enhanced and Chemically Cleaned" if you get the drift. In back to back runs
      within 20 Minutes on our Nationally competitive Demon at the same weight of car they we Indistinguishable.
      Of Course, you lose some weight of the front of the car which is useful.

          These are great intake manifolds you will always hear that others are just as good or better. But they always have to have a benchmark and these are the real deal.

              How much is a brand new intake manifold of equal or near performance cost?

              Hope that clears this age old question up...

              I think that there is a niche market for era correct performance parts, that's his ideia. Besides the one mentioned all the others have had the plenum mod. People Collect many things, just saw a post where a member collects camshafts. this could be applealing to a collector.

              Asking and getting are 2 separate columns..... Ask $400.00 and take $300.00. It's a cool day 2 item and if you find someone with the right zeal to recreate the image of that era they will pay more. But as the years move on those people are getting harder to come by. Neat piece none the less....

                The small notch in the rear plenum is cast that way. Weather some didn't have it...that's it's own story..but I have 2 and both have the part # and the cast notch.
                One is early and one is late. iirr.

                  It does belong to a friend, his collection of vintage stuff is his retirement money. He asked me to research its value. He is 83 and can barely work his phone. So. He asked me to sell it for him. Not now, he still has to approve it.
