I bought a 70 formula for spare parts for my 70 TA today.
The guy had 4 brand new looking  HO aluminum intakes he wants 600.00 ea
a couple 455 HO blocks , Set of HO heads
and a magged ys 400 for 1970 He wants 500.00 for the 400 block , Is that fair ?
So would the alum intake be worth 600 ?Seems high to me , the numbers on it were for 71 or 72 Pontiac , not 100 % sure on exact year.

$500 dollars is a little high too me.
The intakes would not be worth $600 too me.

That 71-72 alum HO intake (if it's missing the heat crossover) and is stock could be worth alot of money if it hasn't been cut to match heads. They say it has more midrange than a torker. The 600.00 depends on how bad someone wants it. Rob

He did have one crossover. The intakes look brand new , he said he has been collecting for years, I dont want them because they are not for 1970 but I thought I would throw it out here in case someone is looking.
