    Well went out on some hunting today for some old tin and came across theses little goodies! Flathead V8 Fenton 2X2 intake in great condition! Bought for $50! with carb. Was sitting in the trunk of a Studebaker Lark. Also a pair of either coupe or tudor model a doors! Bought from the guy for $15 Hoping to get some help figuring out what year and body they came off of and if the intake is for a early or late flathead?

    One week later... and it looks pretty damn good! Just need one more matching carb, rebuild them and some air cleaners with a few chrome pieces and it will be completely done!

    The doors are either 28 or 29 with the wide belt line, I am not sure on what length doors were for which body style.

    I've had stuff polished at JB's Metal Polishing in York NE. Been several years ago ,but might be worth checking.

    Squeeky's metal polishing somewhere in Kansas did my flat head intake, looks great and real reasonable. Sorry no number at home but Google the name and it will pop up.
