289 Edelborck Intake with HI-PO 289 raised letters

Just trying to find out something about this intake. I am looking at purchasing my first Mustang. It is a 1966 289 C code. the guy is telling me the engine is a very limited edition 289. The carb and intake are Edelbrock and the Intake has HI-PO 289 in raised letters. I have looked and understand Hi-Po 289's did nit use a special intake and a 4100 carb. But I have also not been able to find anything out about this intake. Can not find anything on an Edelbrock intake with the words Hi-Po 289. Does anyone know about this intake. He said engine was a swap.

Are you sure it doesn't say "Performer 289"? That was standard for the edel performer intakes for awhile. Not sure if they still have that on them.

No it is not a performer intake. It says HI-PO 289. Trying to get a pic today. I guess I should have said purchased my first Mustang. He already got me. My brother looked at the vehicle and did not verify the Vin code. Was told it was a K code, but a soon as my brother showed me engine pic I know it was not. I was not able to be present during the purchase and just went off what my brother was telling me.

It is a C code 1966 mustang. I just have not been able to find anything out about the intake. Good thing is it is a solid body with great paint and interior and now my brother understands the importance of verifying Vin codes.

Another buyer who comes here and asks questions after buying the car. I certainly hope you didn't pay a K code price because you were taken for a sucker if you did. The car is obviously a C code car and no 289 HiPo engine had any kind of special intake on it from the factory.

I can only hope that seller, if as "shady" as is suspected is not a member of our community.
I, too, would like to see a pic of the intake.

You must understand there's several generations of owners. More the. Likely the seller is at least 20 years younger. What the seller's knowledge of what the car is, problably based off what he read off FB who learned about Mustangs from his girlfriend's cousin's boyfriend's uncle. We all know how accurate the internet is.

Take pictures and post them here.
