Looks kinda like a modified Caddy intake ?? That's over in Jerry Forrester's territory. Truck might not be a bad deal

Definitely NOT a 51 Champion engine or trans...

That looks like a full flow engine, but there are no caps on the valve covers nor a stand pipe with a vent. I wonder if that engine ran like that?

That's one of those engines you see advertised all the time "uses no oil"

Are my eyes deceiving me? Does the manifold say CASO on one of the runners? Coincidence or not?

If someone here buys it, I might be interested in the intake and carbs..

Looks like it says CASD

FWIW, some years back, one of our members paid big bucks for a similar setup and then was surprised when the tall 3-bolt carbs plus the tall adapter wouldn't fit under the hood of his C/K.

Sell the 3-bolt carbs and adapters to some HAMBurger to recoup enough money to buy the correct 4-bolt carbs and it still probably won't fit under the hood of a C/K, but it would look good on a pickup or Lark.

Exactly why I've turned down 2 of those setups so far. I'd buy a setup to play with if one came up really cheap, but.. I honestly don't think the 53's hood would close over it.

No one has mentioned it yet, but it looks like the intake manifold is not bolted to the engine either. I wonder if it actually fits?

Has anyone ever had any first hand experience with the Cad 3x2 under a C/K hood?

I know from experience the Cad 2x4 is tight with the stock Rochesters, but with the ever-so-slightly shorter AFBs and a Corvette-style air filter, I did get the hood to close.

I'm wondering about 3x2's on a Studebaker manifold in a Hawk? I'll be using Rochester 2g's. Jim

The Stude-a-Motiv intake, and the Smoljan intake are set up to accept three deuces.
I've set up a couple of Smoljan Re-pops for triple 2GC's....
The Studa-Motiv is set for the older, smaller Holley's (or Stromberg's)...
Choke only on the middle one... Nice progressive linkage..
Sounds like fun....

Terminology is everything in a technical discussion. There isn't any such thing as a Studebaker 3x2 manifold. There are Smoljan/repops (a crude piece, but looks good better than it performs on a stock engine) and I have no experience with the Speed-O-Motive?

Here's a Studa-motiv Model 101 three deuce intake manifold (minus the top plate).
Nice low profile.

While on the topic of multiple carb setups, I'll toss this out there...

A local guy just had a 289 R1 rebuilt. Mostly stock, but with R3 intake valves and a slight overbore on the cylinders. He had the fresh engine dyno-ed with a single 4 barrel, dual 4 barrels, and a 3 deuce setup. All carbs were brand new and were all dialed in to the engine. It gave the highest HP reading with the single 4 barrel (240hp).

The engine is going in a '39 Coupe Express. He's going to run the 3 deuce setup for the look. The truck will probably never be driven any distance.

I bought the manifold I'm using from Dave Thibeault about 2 years ago at the South Bend show. I think it's a re-pop of the Smoljan manifold. Anybody know if it'll clear the Hawk hood? As I said, I'm using Rochester 2g's with no spacers. I also have the "R3" front motor mounts. I'm not looking to improve performance, just the "look". -Jim
