Does anyone reproduce these aluminum R3 carb boxes?

I cannot remember seeing them a a catalog, and I have not seen any at swap meets.

There are more carb boxes around than R3 engines, where did they come from? Are any still for sale?
Thanks,
Brian

I am fairly sure Lionel Stone was the one having them reproduced but since his accident this summer he is out of the picture. Although his inventory will become available again at some point.It is also possible that Phil Harris at Fairborn Studebaker and/or Dave Thibeault might have them. I think the chances of finding an original one are slim.

FWIW, I've got one on the shelf I was planning to modify to fit a Holley. If you are seriously in the market, PM me.

I bought a S.C. kit from Lionel about a year ago, the R3 box looks brand new, so I guess he did the repro units.
