How come just recenty tri power intakes are worth twice what they have been. In the last few years they have been going for $100-$150 all day long. Look on ebay right now, there's a few for 300 and 400 and now this guy says his is worth $800 haha WTF?

That's a sweet car though. If his tri barrel is worth 800 the cars probably worth 8K. I wonder what he wants for it

Actually looking closer at the intake it appears to be a 61-64. Can anyone tell for sure from the .5"X.5" pics?

I've noticed that happening too. Also saw this add. Kind of skipped over it though cause he obviously hasn't got a clue. Rolling Eyes $800 for the manifold? No. $800 for a full tri power with the car? Yes. Then it'd be worth it.

As far as the manifold, I think you're right. The heater hose hook up is on the top of the manifold, not on the front like the '59-'60 would have it. Good eye. Wink

Exactly. I'll give him $100 for that intake and a grand for the car
