I know, I had 2 of them with original carbs and air cleaners, and sold them a few years ago, and now I want one again. I just want an intake(no carb or air cleaner needed), and prefer an early one, as I want to use my Rochester 4 jet carb off my 1964 283 Chebby on it without an adapter, so I am thinking 1957 to ?? Thanks for any help.

The Early 327 4 bbl intakes have a carb flange bolt pattern smaller than a Holley 4150.  I have one willing to sell if that is what u need...or later one.

Early preferred, as my Rochester has the same base bolt pattern as the WCFB. P.M. replied to. Thanks.

Look like price has gone up a bit in the 4 years since I sold mine. Guess I will keep looking. Thanks.

Rare parts don't usually get less expensive over time.

The problem is, I don't consider them rare, especially considering the number of PM's I have received, and many not even posting they have one, just shooting me a PM, and some are nice;
Point being, in the last year, I have seen several people talk about these intakes like they want to sell them, but there are no takers, and they actually say, and I quote "can't seem to give them away", BUT, as soon as someone expresses an interest, they suddenly get Rare, and turn a nice shade of Golden, if you know what I mean. I am expressing an interest, and have received some good prices, and some high, but no-one is trying to take advantage, so all good people. I am trying to weigh my options between putting on a 2100 series carb from a 1969 290, or going 4 barrel. The easiness factor says just put on the 2 barrel, the old hot rod in me says 4 barrel, the skinny pocket (and wife) says sell the car, and wait for something else down the road, like the 69 Ambassador SST 2 Door I have an eye on - SOO, I will see how this plays out, and go from there.
Thanks,
Cricket

Wonder what somebody willing to pay for the 327 4 bbl intake.  I know 3 guys wanting $300-350.   Seems to be market price.   When I sell one I degrease it, bead blast, chase all threads and at least high heat primer it.  Labor and materials should be worth something...no?  Just curious.

The dreaded rambler mentality.  Should have gone up more than 10 bucks since it was  made.

I get your point, and understand value, guess I am just deterred by my own experience, and what I have heard a few others talk about. Shipping on a manifold weighing so much, sometimes offsets even a great deal. I am still weighing options, and will likely make a decision in a week or so, probably going to just put on my rebuilt 2100 series 2 barrel, and see how she does before going further.
Thanks a lot for all the replies, information, and offers.

I found mine ('57) in a junk yard/ It actually came of a '57 Hudson. $150 plus ship. Only year using WCFB. Now If could only find the right carb. Very similar to Chevy of same era.

Sorry, I thought it was for sale. Thanks for clarifying. Let me know the base attaching measurements, and maybe my carb will work, and I will just sell it to you Cool

No, I want a WCFB as close to the Rebel's as possible.

I have a few from when I was trying to build a 2x4 setup for a friends early vette. I will look, so let me know the baseplate dimensions, to verify.

Well, I am a happy person, as  http://theamcforum.com/forum/member_profile.asp?PF=9076" rel="nofollow - cadiac  offered me an intake at a great deal, and offered me an air cleaner, also. I bought both, and I couldnt be happier.
Thanks to everyone who made offers.
