    It is a stock truck (1 ton) intake. With the heat risers removed and without the aluminum riser.

    I have a 39 Plymouth but I'm put a little move power in mine. IMG_20171029_091643708.jpg IMG_20190914_120702418.jpg

    I just couldn't let this go without a minor correction. With the introduction of the 1946 model full line of Mopar automotive production (coupes and sedans, all 4 makes) after the war years, the running boards were gone and the body flared out to the outer edge of where the old running boards were, between the front and rear fenders. The change in the lower body was about the only noticeable change between the 40-45 and the 46-48 (and early 49) cars. This lower body change is pretty clear to see in this last picture of Scotty T's coupe. Gene

    I'm sort of wondering why folks are posting pictures of their cars on the o.p.'s thread. They have nothing to do with his car other than being mopars.

    Huge snow storm today. When the power stays on long enough I’ve been out buttoning a few things up. Then decided to mock up the intake and carbs. Boy this should be fun this spring.

  8. In the 50's here in So Cal where I live, the drug dealers drove MOPAR cars like this because the Cops never pulled them over , too slow to bother with. These have pretty small rod bearings and loose rods often, so take it easy on that bottom end. Now days they're ok, I like yours.

    Will you need manifold heat?

    No. I looked into it a bit. If anything I may need to let it warm up a bit longer. Which I normally do anyhow. I’ve found a lot of people running similar setups

  11. If you've got the room, and the ambition, you could splice into a heater hose and add a section of copper pipe which could be mounted the length of the bottom of the manifold from front to rear. Easy to attach with a couple of clamps. Maybe not the quick heat like you'd get from the exhaust manifold but would still help with fuel atomization and to prevent carburetor icing.

    Maybe fab up a long "U" shaped tube so the inlet and exit would both be at the rear so you don't have to snake a lot of extra heater hose around under the hood.

    I’m not sure there will be any room. It hugs the exhaust quite close.

  13. You're right... I went back and looked at some of the manifold pictures above. :oops: They've got the exhaust snuggled up pretty tight under the intake, but then the carbs are quite a way above that. :rolleyes:

    What a great project !! I like that car..
    Well done exhaust manifold, and who made the manifold, or which car is that manifold?

    I'm going to do the same thing on my own - 54 Windsor.

    Thank you. It is a early stock big truck intake.

    I'll be watching this project for sure. Perfect traditional plan, great attention to detail with well executed craftsmanship.
    The sounds of the family Mopar flat 6's from my early years still ring in my ears.

  18. I don't get that either. Killer Mopar Sodakmini.

  19. I must apologize for that, I posted some pics intending to suggest a modification or two. I dropped the ball on the wording tho!

    Wow, beautiful landscape shot with the car in the snow!
    You might think about adding some louvers to the hood as these old mopars have a heat soak problem and that really cured it on mine.

    Started working on the 2nd air cleaner tonight. Got a bit left. Did some mock up to see how high I can raise the carbs. IMG_8825.JPG IMG_8826.JPG IMG_8827.JPG IMG_8828.JPG

    I have never had this happen on any of my modified Mopar inlines. My Chevy 250, yes.... Not sure why the Mopars did not have this issue like my GM did.

  30. Maybe on the Mopars they just did a little better job of heating the intake off of the exhaust manifold, maybe underhood temps ran bit higher. As far as carb icing goes, a lot of that depends on air temps, humidity and air speed and the pressure drop thru the carbs. I'd guess the Chevy 250s tended to run at higher RPMs than the Mopar flatheads.
