    Wouldn't that be sweet for the vintage rod treatment?

    With some work, you can make it pretty.
    With some more work, you can make it accept an AFB.
    But it will always have real small runners, as it was designed for the small/small Stude V8.
    Great for a mild street car, but a stock Stude 4bbl intake will outflow it.

        There's also no entry point for the choke heat tube, but that wouldn't be a problem today with electric chokes.

        Thanks for pointing out the limitations, Jeff. (BTW, that's a nice polishing job!)

            Take a look at the front lower runners on an OEM manifold! Worse!

            All in all...they're really good around town (small runners!) on a 259. On the freeway..up to about 4000 rpm...not bad either...after 4000rpm....not much there at all!
            I've got two...one on my stock (engine) 259 Lark wagon. The other's sitting on a shelf.

            They can be opened up to a nice size, plenty-o-metal...but it'll cost a proverbial "arm and a leg"! Extrude Hone isn't cheap.

                Actually there is a little hole that looks like it's intended to pass a small steel tube through for choke heat - but the only carb I ran on my offy manifold was an electric choke model so I never tried to make it work.
