Jim V (hemi71x) owned one of these manifolds years ago and allowed me to handle it, probably the same one that Scott handled at Carlisle and has passed hands several times through the years.

Performance gains? Don't kid your self folks, Ma Mopar made these things for that very reason. The tube length's are equally tuned at 21 inches. That accounts for them being oversize.The rest of the wild "H" pipe set-up that went along with the manifolds provided for a total tuned length of 42 inches. The pipes were paired together, hence the term "TRI-Y", to pair the exhaust event's of the odd and even cylinders to provide maximum cylinder scavenging of the exhaust gases. Basically a cast iron set of actual tuned headers. Yes it is more technical than I can remember off hand but cool none the less!

For the longest time my Dad had a set of those pipes for those manifolds.It took the longest time for him to sell them, unfortunately he is no longer here to see these be made. Go for it Scott, I think those would be a great addition to the many parts that are already being reproduced.

Most would agree that these were never installed on a production MW car sold to the public (although it's possible). Shown here are a set installed by thier currect owner, tight fit but the cool factor is off the charts!


Hello Scott. Those pictures look like the ones on my buddys car. I sent pictures like that to a guy in MT I think .I'll try to get ahold of my friend and see what I can do about those manifolds..

i always thought that the inner fender panels had to be reworked to use those manifolds, , maybe not. i never seen them on a car back in the day and have only seen them at swap meets years back. a tubing duplicate would really be cool.

Interestingly, the only other Chrysler exhaust manifolds even remotely similar to these did actually make it into normal production, these are the 1963 Chrysler 300J 413 Short Ram manifolds, they have the same crudely cast appearance, are HUGE, heavy, and have some similar rectangular tube shapes (like the Tri-Y's above do) as opposed to round tubes as most other big block manifolds had.





And they won't fit a b-body unless you get rid of the torsion bars.

Just the right inner fender needs reworked. I'm pretty sure that's myfriends car and he did that clone car years ago. I was with him at the All Hemi Reunion this year but forgot to ask him about that 64 Savoy.

They came from you, I was leaving your name off in case you preferred it that way. I think you sent them directly to me but I don't recall for certain. Please let me know what your friend says.

Thanks!

This is the left side Tri-Y manifold that i had for quite a few years.
At the time, i purchased it from the person that also owned the set that i posted pictures of.
Until Scott posted pictures of the Tri-Y's installed in a car, i too have never seen that before.
At one time i actively tried to find a right, but i never had any luck in finding just a right side manifold.
I really don't think just a right exists anywhere anymore.

Those are awesome, I would love to pop the hood on my car and see those, the WOW factor would be off the charts.

It would be kind of like the first time I saw a hemi motor in person, I kept thinking, holy $**t, those valve covers are HUGE.
