    My '54 Commander was decked out in period correct Offy stuff when I got it -including valve covers, intake, and a matching Offy carb hat. Here's a pic:

      When was STU-V in Marysville? As far as I know it was in the Los Angelas area until we bought the name. Did John M. live there at one time?
      I guess I heard wrong on that.

        My Lark (2dr wagon) WAS too. When I bought the car, all that stuff was in the back. Then I added a pair of Offy breathers to the rocker covers.

        I removed it all from the Lark to put in on my 299 I'm putting into my 54 wagon, along with a L.S. valley cover, which is sortasomewhat close in fin design and layout.

            I was intrigued by that intake manifold the first time I saw one in Bob Mikulucs manifold collection he displayed with his supercharged 50 coupe. As I live in the general area of Marysville I always ask at the local swapmeets about Morgan Studebaker and Frank Morgan. About fifteen years ago I was talking to a gentleman at the Olivehurst swapmeet, he told me that he had molds for heads and intake manifolds that were from Morgan Studebaker. He then told me that Frank Morgan had sent three protoype V-8 engines to Studebaker engineering and had never been paid paid for them. This was sometime before 1955, guess the displacements. I didnt think to get his information but gave him my card and he has never contacted me. Take a good look at that intake manifold its a very well thought out piece and it only makes sense that it was part of a total upgrade. I will be happy to persue any further leads on this.
