At least $150.00, if it's for a 245.

The Big Six was Studebaker's largest displacement engine ever built for a production auto.At 352 cubic inches, it's not big, it's huge.

Different big six. That was my initial thought, I didn't think any speed equipment was made for the earlier version. This item is for the later 245 ci Commander 6.

"At least $150.00, if it's for a 245."

My ignorance, but how do the intake/exhaust portions of a 245 differ from a 226, or for that matter the even earliest(where they 219's?) "Commander 6's"?
I 've always thought the first ones were bored to make 226, and that the 245 was a stroked crankshaft with beefier mains?

The ad should use the correct terminology. The only Big Six marketed with that name by Studebaker was the 352. Someone is likely to end up very disappointed. Rechecking the ad he does call it the big six 245, but potentially very confusing to folks who play with the Big Six

Not really,----His ad says Commander Big Six 245......completely clear to anyone who would have an interest in this part. (It's DEEP'S thread heading which was a bit misleading.....Now corrected!)

Jim, you've been hanging out with that Shannahan guy too much.

I'm jealous.

Wasn't the Big Six offered in the late teens through the mid 20s? I thought it was 354 cu in. The 352 cu in was the 56 Golden Hawk displacement.

studefan, the Big Six was 354. My fingers kept getting it wrong. Thanks.

My point is there is no 245 Big Six nor Big Six 254. Never was, still isn't. When I read the ad, I assumed the seller was misinformed on the size of the Big Six, but his manifold fit the Big Six. My misunderstanding and I'm sure it was clear to everyone who doesn't know what a Big Six was.

Whatever name you call it I still want the intake if it is indeed for a 245 from a 51 2R 17 truck. Steve

If was going higher. I tried to raise my bid last minute and couldn't get it in fast enough on my I phone :(

Interesting comparing the Edmunds to the Weiand. Both were made for the Commander 6.

The Edmunds has a flatter chamber on top with downward sloping runners to the ports.
The Weiand (below) is pretty much all on the same plane as the intake ports, but has a nice setup that utilizes the stock linkage.

I'd be curious to know what differences in flow/performance the two would have, if any.

What I don't understand is why some enterprising person doesn't take one of these old manifolds and have them recast to sell to current 245 owners? I'm sure there are more people out there interested (like myself) than there are old original parts available. Grind off the name to avoid lawsuits, if it would even be an issue for so old a part. Copyrights do expire. No one sells these anymore, is it even a problem to duplicate them as long as you're not trying to pass them off as originals?

I guess i'll keep an eye out on ebay for one -- $400 or so isn't too bad...
