hahaha- yeah, he's a fixture there. And he runs the same craigslist ads all year long, many the same the last few years. Between the comment he made and a few others in this thread having to do with value of a rare part, just my opinion, but if your overall concern is only "value" in this hobby, you don't get it, you never have, and you're locking the future generations out by doing so.

I am sure there is a limited number of people that would pony up and buy a pair.
It is too bad someone won't let a piece be copied for True Enthusiasts that would like to have a set.
I don't know Scott personally, but from my opinion he has helped the Mopar Community very much with his having NS1 parts remade to just awareness of very important details many people miss.
Some people like to have the only one left on Earth.
Thank God it's not a cure for cancer or something else life threatening.

My take is this .... that car never came with these manifolds ,period , then a set was brought for a crazy price on eBay .They where put on the car too make it look original ,then the car was advertised for sale for a high price . I wish the seller well in his sale but those looking to buy such a car know this ones history.
If they are reproduced the only loser is the buyer who originally paid the high price for the manifolds. As a rare piece they have value BUT don't add to this cars value unfortunately. imo

Agreed, as with any other modified car, they add no more value to the car over the price of the parts themselves (if he could find another person willing to pay what he did for the manifolds), the car isn't more "special" or valuable just because they were added.

I would be curious to find out the price in this 2017, day and age.

Decades ago, i purchased that single, left side, Max Wedge Tri-Y exhaust manifold from a collector in Michigan.
Bought it from a for sale advertisement in Hemmings Motor News, before you did anything on the internet, and before ebay ever started.
Remember the old dinosaur days?

I kept that manifold for years and years, in my collection, stash, hoard, of parts.
If i remember corretly i sold it off for $1,500.00 to somebody back east in New Jersey, or Pennslyvania.
Can't really remember that far back, though, on that particular.

It's been sold numerous times to others, throughout the years, to select buyers, for something like that.

A single right side has never surfaced for sale, to my knowledge, to mate up, with that leftie, so i never had any regrets in selling it off, when i did.

They do look heavy. I wonder if someone had a set would they be legal in the Pure Stock races on a real Max Wedge ? Ron

Realistically? Probably very little (if any at all) performance difference between normal MW exhaust and the Tri-Y style manifolds.

I actually have a full NOS set of these, right and left in the basement but they are from Johan in 1/25 scale. They were on the 64 Dodge Model.

i'm going to take a guess here! but chrysler designed these for a reason.
one would think there had to be an advantage.though the maxwedge manifolds performed well. anyone know why they stopped production?

Has anyone checked with Chrysler Engineering?
I had a couple of Buddies that used to go to Detroit to the
Engineering office and poke around in the early '80's.
They got quite a bit of info back then.
There has to be some type of archive blue print?
They used to bring back some cool parts, NOS bought cheap.
For instance, 70 B body tall pistol grip shifters brand new for $ 7.00 each.
They told me there was 55 gallon drums with 69 Road Runner dash tachs in them.
I would say anyone who has an In with the Higher ups, could still turn something.

That crowd is long gone. Most have died off. Back then the prints were on paper - well before Catia. We had a Transmission Suite "record cleanup day" several years ago. I tried to get all the paper prints that guys had squirrelsd away in file cabinets from when guys retired.
I was told "no way Jose". In the locked collection bins and off to the shredder.

2 1964 max wedge cars sold at Mecum Kissimmee in January for $145,000.
I would like to see the same for mine.
