Stock intake value

Make your Cougar run faster, handle better, and jump higher... okay maybe not jump higher. If you feel the need for speed, this is the place.

Stock intake value

#1

Post by dbenney » 08 Feb 2019, 07:47

Can anyone tell me roughly what a 4bbl stock cast intake is worth? I'm doing a 390 build and someone wants to buy my stock intake. I don't wanna screw them over but don't wanna sit myself either. It came off a C6ME-A block with C6AE--R heads... I don't have the numbers of the intake right now but can get them in a day or 2.

Thanks guys

This is a link to WCCCs catalog they have $223.97 on it and are out of stock. I have seen them go from $100.00 and up to $175ish. But remember if you ever want to go back to stock you most likely will need to pay more then what ever you sell it for to replace it.

Hmm, that is only about 50 cents per pound.

So true! Now imagine a buyer's "push back" when you need to ship it across the country. Really, I have 2 or 3 you can have for $40 each plus shipping. I also have a couple of 429 Rochester flange intakes, a nice T (2V) and a pile of various small blockers. I also have a core collection of C6 transmissions, more core water pumps, power steering pumps, alternators and pulleys than I can count. I have no fewer than 50 carbs (just like the one you describe) off every car I've ever parted out. I take a rotation of these parts to the 1 or 2 swap meets I do every year and people act like I'm robbing them when I say, "$20 for that"

I recently bought a 78 F250 for parts. It has beautiful door panels, a perfect dash cluster and a magnificent dash pad. A guy asked me, " How much for the door panels?" I said $200. He said he could buy new ones for $300 (although mine had the perfect arm rests, door cups, handles and hardware, too.) I followed up with how the original Ford parts were likely to fit and look better than the re-pops. He agreed and walked away.

I would think the winter months would be a great time to sell parts, especially as a cure for cabin fever. Everything is moving slowwwww.

I have a quite nice deck lid for $350 plus shipping. Email me at Rayaaa@charter.net for pictures or search on my other posts as I believe I have posted a picture of it in recent months. Anyone want to go into the bumper business? I have a pile of nice core bumpers, too. Email me!
