Lee Speed Shop

Back in the days you had alot of different flathead intake manifold producers.
One of them was Lee speed shop. One of the earliest of speedshops then. Here is an old sales add from Lee.
What I understand he took over the pattern from Tommy Thickstuns First prewar intake and just
added Tornado on top when Thickstun made his new better Pm7 intake back in late 1941.
Thickstuns intake was a 7 inch highrise intake but was also sold as cut down,
The Tornado intake was made low and sold with separate risers!

Here is a link to compare the looks of a  cut down Thickstun intake I have.

Funny thing is in the bottom you could buy restored chrome stromberg carbs back then for 12 bucks each! And holly 94 carbs for 17$.
Its a little more expensive today! 

If anyone knows of a intake or stacks for sale, send me an email to: Flatheadroadster@gmail.com

Prewar Thickstun Intake

 Bought myself this super nice cutdown  prewar intake made around 1937 -1941.
In late -41 Tommy  made the well known Pm7 intake.

But this one must be an early cast as most of these intakes I have seen the logo is in very bad shape, I think the sand casting didnt work as good back in the late 30´s.
This  intake is in mint shape of the logo, just I wish it still had its tall necks.

Vic Edelbrock set record with his 1932 roadster in 1940 with an Thickstun intake like this one!
but that was a highrise.

I really like the early highrise intakes.

If someone out there has an uncut intake  or any other higrise flathead intakes  for sale , send me an email!

Mike´s 32 roadster

My buddy Mike came with a trailer trough the snow and stopped by my garage the other day to borrow a set of fenders and runningboards from me.

The car needs fenders when you get it registrated. As here in Sweden we are "not allound to drive our hotrods without fenders , but we do it anyway. It looks good on paper when the fenders are on.

Anyway Mike called me today and was very happy. the registration went good and now he gets his title and licence plates for it.

So congrats man!

see you on the road in a few months.
