Default Aluminum 4 barrel intake for 1964 389cid

Does anybody make a 4 barrel aluminum intake maifold for my 1964 389cid block? I would like to buy one to use until I can get my tri-power built. It seems all the books list 1965 to 1977 intakes but nothing for the pre 1965. I do have an Offenhauser 6 barrel aluminum intake but I can't find a 4 barrel version. If anyone has makes and part numbers that would help. I'm going to a Swap Meet this week-end and if I knew what I was looking for "part number wise" I may be able to find a good deal there. If not I would have to find a new one. Thanks.....Lenn.

there were intakes made by all the aftermarket people.Dont think there are any now.They show on Ebay all the time.The factory 62-63 SD intakes also work but are very expensive.Tom

look for one with the 12 bolt mounting instead of the newer style 10 bolt mounting.

Default intake update

Hello guys. Just and update. I found a complete tri-power set up for my car. An old friend from the 80's had it in his basement. Ran into him at a funeral of all places. He wanted $500.00 for it, I was saying sold even before he mentioned a price!!! That means I have some extra intakes. I have a brand new offenhauser 61-64 style tri-power intake, a factory original cast iron 63 dated tri-power intake and a 64 dated 4 barrel intake. I got a hold of Mike from Illinois who owns www.tripower.com. I sent him some pictures of the set up, he evaluated what I needed besides carb kits and is mailing the stuff to me. So, I guess I lucked out, getting a complete tri-power set up for $500.00 and then another $500.00 to rebuild it...........I'm happy. The only upgrade I may do now is find a date coded 1964 tri-power intake for this set up. I hear that the 64 intake is also a bit higher that the previous years!!
