I'd like to add a shaker setup to my '70 Mach I. I know about the scarcity of parts when it comes to shakers. Perogie Enterprises sells complete, reconditioned shaker assemblies and gave me a quote of $1895 with snorkel, or $1595 without.

Included parts are (from the email they sent):

"A reconditioned 1970 Mustang 351W shaker assembly consists of the following
parts: air cleaner base, air filter element, 14" inside lid, snorkel (hot air
duct), intermediate plate, flapper assembly, vacuum diaphram, seal and the
scoop. The entire assembly has been cleaned, repainted, the vacuum diaphram
has been rebuilt and the seal is an NOS type with the old Ford logo and part
number on it. This is a show quality unit ready to install on your car."

I know this is high, but is it crazy-high? Do any of you know of any other place to buy shaker assemblies?

Thanks,

HH

I think that it's hard to say. Not being into those years, I can still understand supply and demand. I'm sure that Perogie isn't into those parts for peanuts, but they want to make a profit. It's too rich for me. Another source for those items is Semo, in Missouri. They are into those years. 314-243-1119. 243-7664

That seems like a lot of money to me. Perogie is known as a place that has everything--at a cost. Semo is expensive, too. It's not that these places are bad, just that you'll pay top dollar.

If you hunt down the stuff on your own, you can put a shaker setup together for less that half what you were quoted. Shaker setups are sold on ebay all the time.

Does it have to be original? There's a place in Australia that makes a repro. It's not exact, but it looks pretty good.

I've seen those fiberglass repros and wasn't impressed. If I'm going to spend the money, I'd rather get the real thing and know that what I'm getting is in good shape.

What I like about Perogie is that they sell a complete, original shaker assemblie, refurbished and ready to roll. It doesn't just seem like a lot of money - it is a lot of money.

I know that part of the "fun" of all this is tracking down parts, and I've done some of that. I'll also have to get another hood and paint it to match the car, which could turn this into a pretty expensive mod. Maybe tracking down the parts on my own is the way to go.

In addition to a hood, don`t forget you will also want the pot metal shaker hole trim ring, as well as the bracket that goes from the intake manifold to the air cleaner base, which prevents the housing from pivoting on the carb stud. Although I`ve had several shacker equipped 69-70 Mustangs, mine were all either 428 CJ or 351 C 4V. Prehaps the 351W unit is rarer than the others, resulting in a higher price.$1800.00 sure seems high to me, ( I remember buying complete, nice running CJ cars WITH shakers for that much years ago)Guess I`m too old. How much do they want for a CJ shaker? Thats likley the most common unit.

It's all relative. Those $2000 65-66 Mustang Cvts are now 10,000...requiring the same 10,000 or more to restore them. Now they sell for 20-25,000 restored, as opposed to 12,000 plus restored. Take a look at what the KAR group gets for Mustangs. Oh yes, before I get hit with "I got one for 1500" stories, let me just say they are getting harder and harder to find. I think the same thing applies to shaker assemblies. The same situation happened with vintage Corvette and vintage Fords. Care to guess what an early Ford nos "Banjo" steering wheel is worth? A 68 Corvette Tri-power set-up is just under 3000! Checked Hemmings for mopar shaker stuff. One ad listed the single carb base only for $500 and hood trim rings for 150-300.

Anyway, it's all relative. I sure dont like it but that's the way it appears to be.

Yeah, I`m afraid you`re right, still wish I had a "time machine" set for 1973 & a BIG bag o cash! It could be worse, we could be into Corvettes! I was at a swap meet yesterday one guy had a "correct" Borg Warner T10 for a 57 Vette with a March/57 casting date for a mere $6200. US. Same guy had a 57 FI unit for $5800. (with dist, but no air cleaner stuff. Last year I saw a 55-56 Vette 3 speed std. trans TAILSHAFT HOUSING ONLY for $1200. US.It had some threaded bosses for the floor shifter. Makes Ford stuff seem like a bargain by comparision, I guess. Still, you under 40 types would probably CRY if I told you what I paid for various Ford cars & parts over the years....... Ah, the good old days...

I sold a whole shaker assembly {minus hood} for an 'M' code for $90 in around '83-'85.

Speaking of shaker prices, I just noticed one on ebay for a 69 428 CJ. It was NOS and complete in original boxes. Sold over the weekend for $5k (as in $5000.00). Go figure!!!
