    Those crazy pre-war Art Deco Thickstun 216 Chevy six dual manifolds are very desireable. We sold one at the Decatur TX swap meet a few years ago for $350. Still had its original red paint like all Thickstun goodies, of course it was partially covered with a copper color, and a white, and a yellow, and a blue too.

    For years I was a hoarder, had lots of rare parts that I would never use. When I retired 6 years ago I decided to get rid of things I did not need and finish putting my 39 Ford back together. I have sold most of the "things" including several cars and 2 houses, and am down to the wire on the car. I have made lots of guys very happy by being fair with them. The rariest " part "I have is my 39 Ford that I have kept thru lots of twists and turns in my life for 41 years now.
    It makes sense to sell your stashes and enjoy the cash yourself rather than having it thrown away after your death.
    Learn from me do not be a slave to your parts. :)

    Grabbed a Holley 94 and did a little measuring. It will fit with a slim throttle arm on one side only.

    When I was a kid we had 2 of these intakes, one on my high school car- a 49 special deluxe and another hanging in the garage. We took the intake off the car cause the gas mileage was cut in half (and I had roughly 2 nickels in my pocket at any time for gas). My dad ended up giving both of them away. sigh...
