Gotta find someone who needs one. I would say $1,500-2k for value.

thanks for the input and concerning comments.i've learned more about it today than i have in two months.you know whats funny everything with value is not forsale.but out of everyone i contacted the first thing most people ask is how much you want for it.the more i learn about it its probably out of the price range of what most of you concerned would be willing to pay. the $10.00 i paid for this intake is probably going to be the best $10 i spent in a while

$10.00 for a $2,000.00 manifold, I hate that guy! I would be the guy selling it for $10.00. Nice score, it does pay to know your parts.

GREAT SCORE! WOW!
It sure would be nice to find the rest of the motor ( or just the top end for that matter), for say, 100 bux or so!

Can't really help on value, other than it's obviously worth a lot more than most folks would be willing to spend unless they have a 427 needing one.
And considering what the other Z11 parts go for, i'd have to agree a couple grand if not more.

The Mystery engine was NOT a 409 based engine....It was the forerunner of the 396/427...

Intake will NOT fit anything else....only that engine..had a couple of those intakes...tried to tell some guy from Iowa that they will not fit a 396...he insisted that I was full of shit...(and most likely was correct about that, but I was correct about the intake)......and bought one for a hunnered bucks...........bitched like hell later............this was back in the early 70s...........
