    I had an email conversation with Verne last night about this an he confirmed the black paint on the m/c.

    I rely on Verne Frantz on a lot of the detail items and he has always told me they should be black. Also, the Corvette vendors sell reproduction caps for those m/c that look really nice. yours also looks great!

    Dual Plane manifold for 409 made from AMC engine

    I wonder where this manifold came from? What part of the country. I have seen one, my best friend from years ago built one, this could possibly be it because I have never seen or heard of another. His name was Jimmy Scott, he was a mechanical genius. The motor that his intake was on was a...
