Offy intakes were popular back in the sixties, and worked fairly well. I do not know if Offy makes intakes today, but the Offy name is synonymous with performance and quality.

Offy Intake

Ive run lots of them ,,, even ran a polished tunnel ram with 600 Holleys on a 64 Jeep with 64 Corvette motor back in the 70s .; it ran great . I gave a guy a 360 the other day for a 289 Mustang , it had the 4 holes where carb mounts ; he just wanted for mild street . Offy has always been quality stuff , I believe Edelbrock has always advertised more and stayed with the game longer .

Offy's were really popular back in the day. They also deal in more obscure engines, whereas edelbrock has all common applications. For instance I have an Offy 4 brrl intake on my Rambler's six.

They are good stuff and nothing to throw away, besides I think they increase your wow factor

my used bu great 327 corvette motor 1963 came with an offfy intake and it run like a champ, and a bit differant like the engine. I really like the old oil fill tube on the front facing the passenger side, with the newly added PCV valve with the road draft as the fresh air intake off the air cleaner.
