    Moon still offers that manifold!! They also made some similar non-Chevy Weber manifolds that haven't been available for many years. Last I knew the side-draft version was special order and you had to wait for enough orders for a batch to be made. Not sure if it's the same for your downdraft model.

    Both downdraft and sidedraft are readily available - Monneyes buys them in nowadays: downdraft by Blue Thunder and sidedraft by Pierce Manifolds I think....

    Some unusual intakes so far. My stock 55, 4 barrel, 265 intake I've sold to a Stock Class drag racer for his 55 Chevrolet, now that NHRA has seen the light and allowed the Tri-Five Chevrolet cars, and others, back into Stock. I now have an aluminum, factory casted, Carter WCFB and Rochester 4-Jet carburetor based, intake. Bought it off that auction site we all know and love, and of course, it was advertised as for a "Corvette". In reality, it was made for military or marine use, and no one seems to know for certain which of those it is. I'm going with military due to the olive drab paint still visible in places. It's identical to the cast iron manifolds with the exception on a boss with two threaded bolt holes, and brass fittings in 4 of the runners, two on each side. Wish I could post images. Not really good for any performance increases, but it is lighter than the cast iron counterpart. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

  14. Thanks for the info, I must be thinking of another one I saw years ago. The one I remember was taller with longer runners.

    I'm bringing this thread back from hiatus for a question. I was talking to my neighbor yesterday about 327's and 283's and he said he had something I might be interested in seeing. He showed me a tri power Fenton intake he'd had laying around for years. He said he'd bought it at a swap meet but never found carbs for it. I found this thread trying to find info on the Fenton intake as I'd never seen one in person. He said he might be willing to sell it to me but I had no clue as what to offer him. Does anyone know about how much these are going for?

    NWGreaser -
    $200 would be my offer. It's gotta be worth a little more than that. So if he bumps you up after the offer, you still aren't doing too bad.

    Hopping on to this resurrected thread, this was one of the items listed way basn then "GM factory aluminum #3890490 350 hp vette 1965"
    Why would this be rare and what would it be worth?

  21. The intake is a little hard to see as it is being used, and I am not sure how many of these were made probably bazillions, but these old L-79 intakes are getting a little hard to come buy. So maybe not rare but getting that way and a really good intake for a streeter. And what the hell it keeps the thread alive, doesn't it. :)

  26. Long time reader, new member today.

    With regards to the post Scotty T made about the 1964 Magnesium manifold with the super long runners...it's got me beat.

    It seems it was seen back in Smokey's Garage back in 2003 by BigWideGrin in this forum;
    http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/ir-manifold-usable-6870.html
    Although the garage was not mentioned by name in this link, the manifold pictured is ex Smokey's garage so I am sure 2+2 =4 in this case and think it is one and the same.

    Apart from some manufacturing locations and Magnesium specs relating to the casting numbers, the link is the only information I can find and could well be a Chevrolet prototype.... but from what racing bracket....Nascar, Indy car etc or just made and sent to Smokey for testing...who knows, a lot to learn...

    I wrote to Smokey's daughter today to see what may be known but I don't hold much hope...maybe I'll write to Chevrolet if I can find some inroads...silly thing is, it was listed as Ford and described as Chevy.

    Good news is I am the new owner and Yvette is delivering it to a friend in WI for temporary safe keeping....more when I find out and I look forward to hearing more if there are some solid leads.

    With thanks

    Gavin

    My WAG for the magnesium, long runner, Weber intake would be something like this. But it would be a guess.

    Yep, it is. And Can Am started around 1966 (I think), so the intake was a little earlier. But there were Can Am style and SBC Indy cars before then, so maybe?????????

  30. One of the more impressive cars of its time. I fell in love with that car when I was a kid.
