that's funny.  NOT RARE, in fact, someone is reproducing them.  and no, they were not made by Bush, they were made by B&A out of Arkansas.  Up until just recently, I had 3 such intakes (all dual plane, the single plane is a bit harder to find).  The most I received for a MINT NOS one was 450 bucks.  They have 2V intake ports, but they can be bolted to 4V heads OR cut to match the larger 4V ports.  There are more and more "Clevor" intakes popping up on the market (Edelbrock, CHI, etc), so the "Street Boss" intakes aren't the only intake for consideration....

a TRUE NOS one I sold for 450 bucks on Ebay many months back (even though the picture dates say 2010).

The one that is rare I thought is the 351 Track Boss for bolting Boss 302 heads on a 351W.  Always wanted to do this and make a 408 Boss instead of a 347 Boss.  I built a 408windsor and dressed it up as a 289 in my old 68 convertible.  Fastest 289 I ever saw ...thirstiest also....6mpg.....had to install a 1970 tank for a 120 mile round trip:)

It had a few horsepower to spare, and besides, it was an original, A/C equipped convertible....kinda played right into that sleeper theme :) 

Does anyone on here have a 351 Track Boss intake??  Just curious.

in 1974 i bought a 65 mustang fastback gt "K" code from the original owner. he lived in new orleans when he bought it new and moved to jackson  missippi sometime later. he blode the hipo engine up good , not just good but it blode up real good ! i bought the car minus the blode up engine complete with an under dash ARA air conditioner that he had put in. if you ever was in nhew orleans in the summer heat you will be wanting that air conditioner. i'm from south missippi and dont know how i stood it all them years without air the various mustngs i owned. my dads 69 boss 302 was the hottest indside in the summer cause unlike the 65-66 fastback with the side vents open and the floor vents open and the windows and the door vents open the 69 aint got flow throught ventilation. yep uh hu !

I have one for the 8.2" deck block, but not for a 9.5" deck block.

Thanks for posting pics, I was thinking of doing it at one point, but have other fish frying at the moment.  I will pass it on to a buddy I know that was thinking of doing it(not on here) and see if he is still game.
