I have (3) R4B intakes that all have the AM4485729 part number on them.
One is a '69 and earlier straight out of AMTech. The other 2 are for the '70 and latter engines. I have seen the latter ones with a hand stamped "70" right below the R4B embossment.

Note the '70' on mine, and gee, it was on a 1970 engine!  LOL
Oops, since I flipped the photo, I guess you have to crank your neck 180 to see the 70, otherwise, look at it and search for the OL on the intake........

Man, I screwed up again?
Oh, I see - well, the intake said 70 before I flipped the photo, and now it says OL instead of 70......
If I flip the photo back it should once again say 70 unless only part of it flips.....

so this intake is for a 1970??? the only reason why am asking is because i brought a 390 motor and trans complete and the guy told me it had came out of a 1969 AMX. Again if my motor is a 70 or newer it will be better because i would like to put a 401 bottom end it..
want to go fast... get an AMC!

well sc397 said he's seen that number on the 1969 manifolds as well...... hard to imagine since normally when there's a physical change, even as simple as bolt hole locations, they change numbers.
Look along the side that bolts to the head - are the middle two holes in a straight line with the other holes, or are the middle two holes "higher" or closer to the edge on each side?

that is why I asked him to post a picture of the bottom side.

People too often get the early and late manifolds confused.  I recently looked at another crossram that was supposed to be an early intake but the bolt holes looked raised to me so I asked the guy who had it to check with an intake gasket. Sure enough, it turned out to be a 70 and up intake and I already have one of those so unless it is a smoking deal, I just don't need two of them.
