  • Intake manifold

    I have in my possesion a STU-V aluminum 2X2 intake mainfold. My question is does anyone have an idea of what this thing is worth? As of now I own three Studebakers. Just a FYI. Thanks in advance. Keith

    Keith; it is worth what people on ebay will pay! Simple as that, without carbs. and linkage maybe $200.00 or whatever the market will bear![^] If you have 3 cars to put it on and do not want to sell it, it does not matter![:0]

        Thanks StudeRich. I do have two of the sidedraft Stromberg WW carbs on the intake but not sure how good they are. I guess I could kit them and they should be fine.

            'Careful, Keith; those really aren't side-draft carburetors. They are normal down-draft carburetors, they just have a 90-degree air horn on top of them. (Don't feel bad; that's a common misstatement in Studebaker circles.) [8D] BP

                Problem using those side inlet carbs is that you can't fit an air cleaner on the back carb. But, if you build some carb adapters to move the carbs up and further apart, you can fit air filters fine...
                But that can cause hood clearance problems.

                Tight in between there.....


                But with some spacing, it can be done....

                But with top inlet WW's it'll fit just fine (if height isn't a problem)

                A comparison to show the difference.
                Hope the info helps...

                        Randy; Stu-V, Offenhauser, Wiend and others they all made these aftermarket 2/2 Intakes for early Stude. V-8 232's, before 4 brl. Intakes and Carbs. were available! [:0] [^]

                            Jeff, you might just have something there with the setup in the picture second from the bottom. Isn't that one carb feeding the other with the gas supply? If so, seems to me that would be a good set up for fuel economy.
