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
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!
I got some phone calls from friends that told me my roadster was in the Swedish car magazine, Power #1 2013.
So I had to go to the store and buy it.
Its a 4 page article.
Now I tell you all to go buy that magazine and check out page 74.
