Default small block chevy intake????

Need some info on a factory aluminum intake part #7013073. Bought a 283 that came out of an old Criss Craft, it had a pair, don't know what happened to the other motor. Anyway, it's angled, I'm guessing to make the carb bowls level when the boat was under throttle. Don't really know what I got, any help would be apprecitated. Thanks:God Bless

I've seen a lot of marine intakes and they are all steeply angled, probably for the reason you state. Figure under WOT from a dead stop, the deck is at a pretty steep pitch and at a time when you sure don't want to run a float bowel dry or bare naked the main jets !

OK, Thanks! Got any idea what it would be worth? I don't have any need for it and maybe someone could use it.

Need to visit/join ski boat forums for that, I think. Zero value for street machines.
There were also 'wedge'carb adapters made to use automotive engines/intakes in marine applications. I used to have a couple of these. might still be in my carb junk pile.
