Have you tried Mosher in LA? He deals with a lot of Max Wedge stuff, he may have an old pair set back.

This is the car the 15,000.00 ebay manifolds ended up on. I contacted him with my project idea and he was not interested in assisting in any way, come to your own conclusions on why. I have not seen another set since.

What I have read about them is they built some sets to go on the 64 cars to be legal for drag racing and Nascar. But before they were put on a car both racing sanctions decided to let headers be legal so they never installed the Tri-y manifolds on any production cars. But they built some sets though I dont know how many. I also heard they had to modify the pass side inner wheelwell and that a few cars had the wheelwell modified but as I have always heard none were ever put on a production car. As for me I would ask why would anyone want them ? Other then looking cool they have to be heavy and look like a bigger hassle then headers. And to me a hot rodder I would rather use headers anyday. Did I read that right that someone paid $15,000. for a set ??? Ron

Why does there have to be a conclusion. You asked....he declined. End of story. Maybe the idea of lett8ng a $15k manifolds out of his sight left him unconfortable.

Bill, They would not have had to leave his sight. Regardless, project is dead unless some manifolds I can have digitized turn up.

He's afraid his ORIGINAL $15k manifolds might possibly ? be 'de-valued' in some

way ? shruggy down

Scott,
Is the place thats making the digital scan near him?

IMO but to make such a statement about someones reasoning to do OR not to do something is in poor taste.

Kid, not trying to piss the people off. But unless you know the owner ( And NO, I dont btw ) This is only your opinion and only an assumption.

Bill this thread started 9 Years ago! Do I remember every detail? No I do not. But I do remember him telling me no, and his reason, (which had nothing to do with any loss or damage "risk" to his manifolds). If allowed I would have had a local (to him) scanning company do the work and would have given him something in return for the help (never got that far).

hey jim, i want you to post them. Don't know the guy. but as it stands he has bragging rights so far to the only set. looks like he want to keep it that way. Me personally i love repo stuff cause it gives everyone a chance. and this way if you or someone smacks up or damage your car you can fix it. and NOT pay a kings ransom.
