Midlife, the manifold was an over the counter part and will fit any standard 289 or 302! And was advertised in a Shelby publication called "How To Sharpen Your Cougars Claws "

For the uninitiated, what intake is this for? I'm guessing a Boss engine of some type?
Looks like 289/302 to me.

Wow!! What a find. It's a true Shelby intake for the Cougar 289 / 302. Is it known how many of these were made? Can't be very many...

I've been wondering how many were made and how many are still around? I seen one on Ebay,I think last year? But it was rough!! I figured maybe more members would chime in that they own one??
