    I know you've all seen it before but I just love this stuff - it was given to me by my late great friend Max Knight, who made the whole set-up, manifold., and all.

    The 200 inline six you posted was in my 1963 Ranchero sold two years ago.

    The tripower adapter is a finned Edelbrock piece polished to match the valve cover and the carburetors are NOS glass bowled Holleys. When I sold the Ranchero, the new owner appeared more fascinated by the truck's air bag suspension then the vintage speed parts. Thus, as he intended to install a 5.0/T-5 combo, I retained the tripowered six coupled to a Toploader four-speed. The Toploader replaced the truck’s original Dagenham as the rebuild price for the smaller four-speed proved cost prohibitive.

    damn ive been wanting to buy some cool old speed stuff too. this is a kickass thread and im ridiculously jealous of the guy with the mickey thompson motor and the hilborns for the nailhead. anyways i dont have an old car so no cool vintage speed stuff yet but for what its worth ive got a really cool looking door panel off a race car i used to work on hanging in my shop (its got a whole story behind it too. very proud of it). and a tire off Dale Jarretts winston cup car. i know its lame compared to all your stuff but its all i got at the moment other than the speed stuff on my mustang (but i wont go there)

    No Pics, but I'm developing an intake habit....
    57 Olds J2 complete, the carbs will go on the E'brock 3x2 for Rochesters on early Olds I picked up off a HAMB'r, then there is an Offy 3x2 for early Olds and a 4x2 for Early Olds..... and a couple of Holden Grey motor 6cyl 2x1's and some more modern junk.
    Must start looking beyond manifolds :)
