Most people are interested in the intakes for the '76 - '80 trucks, which were the intakes I had. I am sure someone will probably grab that one on eBay though, but the only problem is the seller doesn't know what intake it is. If it is for the Holley carb, then probably there won't be much interest.

So there's no way to get my hands on a Offy intake for a weber carb? Not even an old one sitting in someone's garage?

Not a brand new one, unless someone has a new one laying around that eventually comes up for sale. Same with a used one, you might come across one here or there in a bone yard or on eBay or somewhere. Offy wasn't making them about 10 years ago when I first talked to them and ordered some. I believe I ordered 3 or 4 runs before demand plummeted. I believe before 2008 Summit Racing used to stock some. If Offy isn't machining intakes for the 4 cylinders anymore, then there won't be any more made. Even if they would let me order a run, at this point I am not sure I even would with very little interest. Not that there ever was much demand for them anyway, not in the last 20 years or more probably. If Offy still made them and there were 10 or 15 people who would commit to buying one, then I would probably order more, but neither is the case at this point. The first couple runs I ordered there was this much interest, but not anymore for the last 3 years at least. If anything ever changes I will certainly post any updates here, but I am not expecting that to happen. The last time I left a message with Offy a few months ago they never even returned my call. Keep an eye out for an intake if you want one and maybe someday one will come up for sale somewhere.

Ok, I am probably 90% sure I will become the distributor of the Offenhauser intakes model # OFY-6204-CW. There are 2 other types, but I believe this is the one that most everyone is looking for. I am receiving info and specs on all 3 models. I just wanted to post this and try and get an idea of how many people would buy one when I get them in stock or how many people would be interested in one in the near future. I will most likely list some on eBay as well, but would definitely have to charge a higher price on eBay because of all the listing fees and Paypal fees. Anyone here on the LUV boards would have the better price. I am not expecting to sell thousands of these or get rich off them, but I do have to make a little for my time and efforts. I haven't got an exact price as of yet, but I can say that I would have to charge approx. $210 + shipping. Apparently the foundry now charges Offenhauser an Aluminum fee, so that would probably account for the price being slightly higher. The person I spoke with also mentioned that the fee could very well be increased for the next shipment I would get if it takes some time until I would need another order. I guess it all depends on inflation and market price on the Aluminum. Anyway, Shipping I have to check into some more and would have to see if the manifolds would fit into the flat rate box and be shipped without damage. They weigh approx. 13 lbs, so for shipping from my location to say most anywhere West Coast it was around $25 for Priority shipping without any insurance or delivery confirmation. Parcel Post was only like $3 less but would take longer. Also, it would be more if it was to be shipped to Alaska or Hawaii and less if shipped closer to me on the East Coast. Like I said, I will have to check into this more. I haven't looked into UPS shipping yet. I know someone mentioned that shipping used to be around $15, so I am hoping I can get the price to be close to that. All in all I think this is probably a pretty decent price for the manifold being it is way below retail list price and even slightly lower than shop price. I hope to just try to keep these alive and cover my expenses and investment. So if I can have a better idea of how many people are interested that would be very helpful! :) As for a timeline, probably around 6-8 weeks once I place the order. After the foundry makes them, Offenhauser has to machine them. Depending on how busy they are I guess it could be as little as 5 weeks or as long as 9 weeks lead time. After I have them in stock, there shouldn't ever be a wait. If I can sell enough and have to re-order, then I would definitely order them ahead of time. If you guys have any more questions let me know and I will try to answer. I hopefully will have all the specs on all 3 models sometime next week. I don't know what kind of demand there would be for the other 2? Probably not enough to make it worth the while. Hopefully there will be enough interest in the 6204 so I can keep these from becoming extinct! 8)

You can't find any because there aren't any available anymore, unless you happen to find a used one or a new one that someone has stashed away or overlooked for many years. You are quoting from this conversation from a 10 year old post from before I ever ordered any intakes. I don't have any intakes in stock and I haven't now in 3 or 4 years, there just hasn't been much demand at all for them in recent years and not really worth ordering a run of them. The last time I talked to Offy they told me they weren't even machining intakes for the 4 cylinders anymore. I may talk to them about it again and see if they may have changed their mind, but with very few people interested in an intake, it still may not really even be worth the investment, it never really was anyway and I had taken them on mainly to keep them alive for a while for the few of us in the LUV community who wanted them, and the first couple runs people were buying them, but that was 8 - 10 years ago. If anything changes I will certainly post updates here as I have always done over the years. If there was enough interest and Offy would let me order a run, it would probably be a few months before they would even be available anyway, at a minimum probably around two months due to the position in line behind other orders, the foundry casting them, Offy machining them, shipping. I really can't say for sure though until I talk to Offy about it. I still had been considering ordering another run these past few years, if there was enough demand anyway, but that hasn't been the case with only a couple people a year who were serious about buying an intake. The first couple runs there were probably 10 or 15 people a year who bought intakes. Still not really that many, but much more than the last few years. If anything changes I will post updates here.
