I purchased from the original owners son, which bought new in the late 50’s. His son remembers how his dad bought ( Fully Polished ) w/ intentions of installing on his Caddy mill, but family responsibilities sidetracked his plan. The unit was never installed, but shelved until the mid 80’s when his shop closed. It was then moved to his house , where it remained covered until this past weekend. There is still recents of the shipping paper on the back of the manifold. It’s not only cool that vintage speed equipment like this exist, but to own a part of history w/ a killer story, makes it all worth while...The front snout plate is punched w/ 750, which I presume is 750CC, but the real question is the #’s on the Rear... 5000 / 3 Does anyone know what these stand for? Is it #3 of 5000 made? Any help would be appreciated....

    Wow, NOS is the way to go! Awesome find, congratulations. I found this on the Ford Barn, some additional information. This is something I posted on another HAMB thread. JEM (Jack McAFEE) once upon a time produced Cadillac blower intake manifolds however I've never heard of or seen a SCOT before until now.

    Shortly after WWII ended, Italmeccania of Turin Italy began producing a Roots type supercharger for various mostly small displacement European cars. Models included 500cc, 750cc, 1100cc, 1500cc, 2000cc and a 4500cc model adapted to the flathead. This firm went out of business and the blower was taken over by another firm and marketed under the name “S.C.o.T.” (Supercharger Company Of Turin)with distribution by Bell Auto in the USA.

    The Italmeccanica Company was restructured at some point in time and became Societa Compressori Torino (S.C.O.T.). I haven't been able to identify any production numbers to date.
