A fellow I know has a manifold that looks exactly like the one that Dave (Wythors) has up for auction on Ebay right now (see "GT350 manifold revisited" thread), but with one difference... it has "FORD" where Dave's has the "COBRA" name.

Unfortunately I don't have the numbers from the manifold on hand, but thought that someone here might know what this manifold most likely came from. Visually, it looks exactly like the Shelby hi-rise, except for that one difference. Any ideas out there? He's just curious as to what he actually has. Any guesses would be appreciated!

Thanks folks.

I think its an option they have now on the reproductions, kinda like all the different valve covers available. There's so many different valve covers out there you could probably find one with your own name on it!

I don't think its a vintage intake, but I may be wrong...

not as much value... as it wasn't ever installed on cars... they made them like that for a 351W too.

Also C90F-B Holley 600cfm carbs... they are common Ford aftermarket replacements often sold as original GT390.
All this stuff is in the old Ford Muscle Parts books... hmmm maybe that something i can hawk on e-bay... i finally have my PayPal thing worked out.

I guess i need a digital camera now looks like you can't sell a damn thing unless folks see a photo.

There were several FORD scripted 180 degree aluminum high rise intakes produced (marketed) by FoMoCo. The common ones that are available these days are re-pops with the FORD or COBRA or even COUGAR script letter option as Sam said. Now, where Tomp is dead wrong is on the C90X intake which looks similar but is taller with larger runners. It has the FORD script block letters and the C90X cast into it. It was designed by FoMoCo and marketed through the Muscle Parts program for the 351W conversion package. This is a very valuable 180 degree 289 302 single 4V FoMoCo intake. It is the BEST performing street/strip intake for a 289-302 you can get short of and Edelbrock Air Gap. No brag, just fact!
