Thanks for the pics Jim, I think the one you own is in fact the one I picked up years ago, I remember it had a repair as yours seems to have? Hey, just for kicks, what does it weigh?

*(edit, I just notice you said "had").

Scott:
When i sold it off, it went all the way back east, to New Jersey, or Pennsylvania, if i can remember that far back.
I'm sure that's why it probably showed up on the east coast.
It did change hands a few times back east.
P.S.
Your PM box is full, i tried to answer your message, but my reply wouldn't go through.

have you called jim kramer



Some one here said he owns this car...
I took this pic around 83/84 (I had more including under hood... but lost them to the ex )
Whether they belonged on the car or not I have no idea... but I'm pretty sure it had a set of these on it.
I remember looking under the hood and yelling Holy $!@# look at that exhaust...
I had never seen anything like it b4... or since.

Reed Koppel sp. knows more about the Tri-Y's than anyone I've talked to, he used to have a set or more and he's owned a couple sets of the pipes. Last time we spoke he still had one set of pipes. He told me he knew of a set of Tri-Y's back east, not the set that Michael knows of.

Yes Bill I have, (been looking into it for a couple years now). Guess what? It's almost a certain loser concerning payback, but I am determined to see it through, sounds nutty huh?





My kinda guy.

Have you tried any of the parts hoarder/sellers, or the guys with lotsa OLD MoPar performance stuff, Dave Wren, Ben Snobar etc?
I have a possibility up here I will try, I know I've seen a couple- maybe several sets of the more common MW manifolds in his garage, and I'll see him this weekend most likely.

The factory product was pretty danged cool, tough to beat for the "wow" factor for sure.

I was lucky enough to see a 64 Plymouth with a set installed at one of the Mopar shows at Quaker City years ago.

Truly a engineering marvel when you see a set installed in person.

Sometimes I'm on the fence about reproductions because next thing you know everyone has the same thing on there cars and some of the uniqueness and mystique is gone.

Definately a cool project and good luck to you Scott.

In a way I agree, but these things are so rare they are almost mythical, most have never seen them, nor will they ever see any. I think they deserve to be revived. Keep in mind that to the best of my knowledge they were a part that never quite made it to production so they will remain a novelty add on to anything wearing them, there's a certain "fun" factor to that one.

Crazy.....Yes, I've tried Wren, he doesn't have any. I don't care to speak to Mr. Snobar, not even if he had the last set on the planet.

I totally agree

Used to be that seeing an E body with a shaker was like seeing a nice set of natural DD's. You stopped and took notice. Now, just like the repop shakers every other woman you see is sporting a big rack. They lost their WOW factor.

The ones you saw at Quaker City Raceway years ago are the sames ones in the picture above. The picture was taken at QCR.

That's true, but you still look, and sometimes stare.

Shaker Hood..... not so much.

If the planets align correctly somebody might contact you with a set of those manifolds bolted to a pair of the infamous "209" heads.

I tried everybody I could, I know the manifolds are rare, but I didn't know they were THAT rare.



Hope you find some .........

No problem. I'll keep my eyes/ears open, but most of the guys with a remote chance of having something that rare have came up dry in my searches.
