bump.......... I love this thread!!!!!!!!!
Wow, great story. Thanks for sharing.
Did you happen to ask if they'd still cast a few up even today? I'd be interested.
I'm just glad he held on to it and that I know the story! He also saved the original dash out of his A-V8 with a Chris-Craft panel and full compliment of '30s curved glass S&Ws
I believe they still do on request as a special order intake, or at least they did last time I was there. I think they liked to wait until they had a few requests before they would cast up a run of them to fill those requests.
Heres one Id never seen , Freiman dual carb.
This is not a eddie-meyer intake. And I dont know what it is so pleas if someone have the info so pleas tell. As you can see its big difference
Its similar but not the same.
Those are all Eddie Meyer, just different versions cast at different dates.
52-53 Mercury Monarch. Lots of them in Canada. Only one I've seen down here.

Here's one that you can change from 2 2's to 4 barrel. No name on it.
got a couple of them if anyone is interested..........yes, they are aluminum
Same manifold Corey, photo Mike posted is one I took when I found the manifold in the old Man's shed.
This is my Eddie Intake and it's on the block . I have
had it out of sight for 40 years.Ya just don't see them.
I know of a Tom Cherry, cast in Muncie indiana. Two 81's with sp tops. Will get a camera over there next time I go.
4 banger ............ steve
Heres a couple of the high rise intakes. I just picked up the Thickstun pre war 2x2 intake. Does anybody know what that intake was called. You know you have like the PM-7's, what about this one?
oops! heres the pics
The early Thickstun should have a number stamped in the flat lower part. Mine does, does yours? And too bad about the blob ruining the logo.
You are lucky the Tattersfield has a little bit of the original blue hammertone paint on it. DO NOT remove it.
Mike, would you explain the runner difference between the two, or are they the same..Hard to see..
Yes, there is a number! Its stamped f-1214 and the Tattersfield is stamped T-6410. Whats number is stamped in your Thickstun? Yeah I know, I wish that wasnt there on the name, I looked and ya its just a faw in the casting. I guess its interesting?
That Tattersfield is staying as is and will never get touched. Its going on my 3 window right after I get it back from the painters. You can see the Hammertone blus all around the intake. Wish it had more!
I have been studying the Thickstun and the Tattersfield side by side and came up with some interesting defferences between the 2. Since the Tattersfield is similar to the PM-7, I thought the 2 would be the same but no way! The high rise portions of the intake is about an inch taller on the Thickstun. The risers in the Tattersfield is further back on the intake then the Thickstun. Also the risers are closer together on the Thickstun, about a 1/2" closer too. The Tattersfield air cleaner wont even come close to fitting. Heres some pictures of what I am talking about.
Duane, I hope these pictures can answer the question.
Here are the pictures side by side.
Mine is stamped F-1391. I'd guess that is a production serial number rather than a part number.

It was painted dark green when I got it, but not sure if it was Thickstun paint or otherwise.
Your 2 scoops are very hard to come up with also.......I have 4 and yours

Very Kool, Keep them coming!
side by side thomas intake. pretty bitchin
Not mine but got to see it the other day...V8-60 Ardun with Offy adapted Hilborn / Travers injection:
I dont know if this is rare but i've never seen another one like it.
Wow Tyrell, I hope that set up is on your roadster! Same with the dual plug Elco heads! This is a very cool set up.
Really? I never would have thought these scoops were that hard to come by. Whats different about these original ones?
