View Full Version : Cathcart aluminum head dual intake exhaust ? w pic

I have a full Cathcart aluminum head, dual intake (with carbs and linkage), dual exhaust setup.

I bought these years ago, bolted them on a running motor, never got the motor/car running and have since replaced with a single carb Studebaker motor and will soon do a swap out frame and Cadillac 500

question is: what is this stuff worth and where best to sell it?

if local pickup I'd also have a second mostly complete champ 6 and another original head......

A setup like this recently went for $400 on Ebay. I don't think it had carbs or exhaust manifolds though.

It's absolutely worthless.
Send it to me, I'll pay the shipping.

I agree. But I am not as cheap. Shipping plus a box of beer.

That'd sure look good in my 51 Business coupe after i cleaned it up.

If it wasn't for the last minute i'd never get anything done.

Can you have those idle off one carb? Every time I see those setups they remind me of a dual carb setup I had on a stock mercedes, and that thing was a pita until I made an adapter and put a chevy two barrel on it.

I am in Austin - let me know what your plans are for this setup and other stude projects

Well, I'm offering TWO CASES OF BEER. Never mind the rest of these CASO's. AND I'll pay the shipping too.

Seriously, I am interested in all or just the head of you break up the set. Please send a price. Or tell me what brand of beer you like.
