Does anyone have pics of 3300 trans tags?

Dmxf, I was not aware of that. It would certainly be a plus in the current environment of correctness. The car has recently sold btw.

Looks like I'll have to resize my pics.

This is 3239 at Shelton Sports Cars in Ft Lauderdale in the mid 90s. They either bought or consigned it from Dr Segu in PA. Apparently he didn't drive a stick and the car had been idle for some time. I was told vermin had nested in the side pipes. It had about 5000 miles on it when I bought it and was a very good car. It did need some mechanical attention so we built a high horsepower 427 for it and freshened the mechanicals. That engine may still be in the car. I sold it at B-J around 2000 for $227,500 hammer. We've come a long way.

Dan Case,
Does this suggest the entire exhaust system was supplied by AC?

When I decided to un S/C my car I began looking for parts including exhaust manifolds. I found some but the owners would not sell. I finally bought a pair of repros from Legendary in Canada. They look good but don't have a drilled port for the choke stove. The 66 and 67 Ford part for 427s is at least an inch too long maybe more. I don't know where SA got these manifolds to begin with. I've been told they may be an industrial piece but if they were cast without the choke port then it seems SA would have to drill them and find a source for the choke stove. I suppose they could have modified an existing piece but seems like a lot of extra time on such a small piece. The pics I have and have been shared with me look very similar to the Ford part although I can only see the nut end and not the portion that drops into the manifold. The Ford parts are available as repros and I will probably just modify one but thought it would be nice to find the right one. Thanks for all the comments and help.

Yes it does look good and the depth would certainly work.

Thanks for the responses. I have one for a 67 R code Fairlane but it is 1-2 inches too long. I have never seen a correct one so I might just section mine. Once installed it would be hard to detect as long as the nut end is alike.

Does anyone have pics of or info relating to the exhaust manifold heat riser for carb choke on 427s?

I will probably stay original but the thought of another 100+ hp is appealing.
The '67 Cobras were different. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Street cars by the year; '65 427 low riser, center oiler 8v...'66 428 pi 4v...'67 427 medium riser, side oiler 4v with sidewinder intake. A few exceptions.

Good info, thanks. It is the same cam. When I called CC they didn't mention the need for headers but I knew the stock manifolds were bad anyway. I'm considering headers now but want to be as stock as possible. Nick Acton has a set similar to the ones Shelby had made. Be nice to let it breathe. Its scfm at 6500 was only 651.
