Sure you can find another Edelbrock F4B intake for sale somewhere else, but when is the last time you saw an NOS one for sale? Why worry if it's corroded inside , has stripped threads or worse, warped? It's NOS (with various, small amounts of shelf wear) The F4B was the LAT1 option for the 260 Sunbeam Tigers. Some people say the F4B was 1st and the Cobra and Shelby intakes (A/C Cobras, not Mustangs) were copies, some say the other way around. Either way, it's definitely "period correct" for an early 60's or "old school" build. I originally bought this intake for my 1963 Falcon Sprint convertible, but I have changed directions and now its for sale at my loss. I originally paid more just because I wanted NOS. You pay the exact amount for shipping from my door to yours, I don't make extra money on shipping.
