Default Re: GM Experimental Prototype SBC 3x2 / Tripower setup

Doesn't look like there's even a third carburetor? Correct me if I'm wrong but if you look at the farthest carb and look at the distance between that and the distributor, It doesn't look like there's nearly enough room. Also I don't see the third line on the distribution block for the fuel. Could this just be a 2x2 intake?

Would love to see more. I even dig the old MSD box. Any chance there are more pics?

K&amp;N's been making those cotton filters since the 60's. I wouldn't take an old K&amp;N as evidence of fakery.

Do you know what the numbers and date codes on the carbs are?

What's with the modern braided fuel lines and fittings. This doesn't add up.

I agree these don't have that traditional look I'm familiar with, but when do you think these were 1st used in automotive applications?

Could be 80's stuff, but, hey, it's 2016. A car modded in the mid-80s, abused for a few years and parked for the next 25 would have plenty of legitimately earned patina.

As a retired aircraft maintainer, I can tell you stainless steel-braided hose and red/blue aluminum fittings were used on AF jets I worked on back in the early '60s. So I am sure they were used for &quot;exotic&quot; applications such as this 3X2 setup. TAZ [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/flag.gif[/img]

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: 68l30</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I have come across &quot;A&quot; Winters marked SBC 3X2 manifold before. I was intriqued by the markings and the seller wanted a ridiculus amount of money, at the time. Was it a GM piece? Who knows, Winters is close enough to us in NEO, lots of cool stuff and stories pop up.

BIG </div></div>

A fella I knew in Canton, Ohio told me that more Winters aluminum intake manifolds &quot;went over the fence&quot; and were stolen than actually put on cars back in the day. He stated there were lots of intakes floating around the Canton area and most likely still are stuffed away in garages.
