That's interesting, there was a 430 with that intake for sale locally for a while for $2,500. It also included a boat and trailer from the same time period....

Not sure what happened to it.

It intrigued me, but I figured the wife might not appreciate another boat, or even another motor in storage...

For a state that has the toughest smog laws in the
country, why does it seem all the parts for old,
high smog vehicles seem to be out there.

Note: For those interested, I don't believe this "tri-power" set-up is an original O.E.M. 1958 "Super Marauder" item (nor do the individuals who listed it claim such).

The intake appears to be a reproduction, and the carburetors are not of the type used, although the carburetor throttle bodies may be of O.E.M. Ford tri-power linage (FE or S.B.) they are not original "Super Marauder" units. The fuel bowls are not correct for any of the O.E.M. assemblies.

Scott.
