'68 Mustang simple carb question.

So I have a '68 with a '72 302 in it. I've already got it bored out and all that good stuff. It has a 2bbl on it but I want to put a 4 on it. I'm not one for using junk, but in a yard nearby there are actually a lot of older motors in really good shape. People there have common sense and actually shut the hoods! lol. Anyways....I know I could just grab an intake and carb off of just about anything but I was wondering if there were any specific years I should look for. I know there isn't going to be a huge change from one years intake to another. But I know some heads, they're direct swaps and actually have a little more pep to them. So I was just wondering about intakes and 2 cents from you guys. I'll probably just end up putting an Edelbrock on it anyways. Was just curious about this though. Thanks guys!

I was just curious if there were any particular years that might have had a better intake than other years.
I don't think so. They didn't change much at all. The various heads over the years had significant differences but not so much for the intake manifolds. One of the bigger changes was when they changed the machining to go from a road draft tube to PCV. But that had nothing to do with the intake passages in the manifolds.
