is there a kit?could i make my own?has anybody got pics?
No Offence, but why?
Do you mean something like a roll down window?
...I think he means the factory vent tubes that were used,...I have some used ones...
...they were sheet metal tubes and were lined with some felt type insulation to keep the air from warming up as it pass'd thru the engine compartment, w/o the insuation they act like a heater once your car is warm'd up.
Here are shots of my '49 Deluxe, which came with a Cold Air Heater on the Passenger side, and Cold Air Vent on the Driver side. Let me know if you need any specific details. (I've seen the Ducts on Ebay, but you could make your own using modern plastic Intake Tubes).
This is the Driver Side Duct. Not sure what all you are missing, but there would be a Gate on the Firewall, connected to the Duct by a roughly 3" wide Rubber Band/Sleeve (which are available aftermarket), and the other end of the Duct bolts to the backside of a Hole/Screen on the Radiator Support Sheet Metal. Nothing but the Bands are available aftermarket.
Are you referring to a CAI setup ala The Fast and the Furious type for modern cars? That might incite a riot here.
thanx, at last a sensible reply without sarcasm,
thank you for the time to take pics,and give me a sensible reply without silly remarks. cheers bud
Don’t hesitate to ask for any specifics/ additional pics. On Chevy Talk Forum there’s a Thread with factory line drawings, but I think Pics are best.
I could not find a passenger side tube for my uncles 51. I had an extra drivers side. We reversed the tabs, and put it on the passengers side.

I have to be honest, that's what I thought as well.
