The S-code intake is really nothing special is it? I have an Edelbrock on mine so I have nothing to compare to. Is it the same as those found on the T-birds and Wagons?

Pretty much except for the casting number. the 428 CJ was the only "high rise" style cast iron FE intake.

I was just wondering, because I see people asking $100 for them when you can get one of these from another car for next to nothing. I sold one off a 69 Cougar 8 years ago and cauld only get $10 for it(it had a 69 casting on it).

Only the CJ cast intakes will bring $100 or more.

In my best Jan Brady voise:
"ebay, ebay, ebay"

The '66-'68 390GT intake is a different casting from standard 390 4V intakes. It mounts a Holley with a 1/4" plastic spacer. Standard FE intakes have a different mounting flange for a 1" thick aluminum spacer that routes water through it. The PCV hook up is different on these manifolds, too. The LARGE "S" identifies the 390GT intake. To someone restoring a true 390GT, the intake is valuable. BTW, the 390GT cam is what Ford used in the 428CJ! That explains the "C6..." part number.

All of the 390 GT's (S codes) that I have ever owned (and I have had a few)came with a one inch spacer.

Here is a 68 and a 66. I bet the 68 goes for at least $100 and the 66 maybe $50

The price is intriguing, but the cost of shipping would kill me!

A 1969 390GT is a different animal than the 1966-1968 390GT's. The '66-'68's were hot little (big block) motors and the '69 was pretty much a 390 4V.
