Fortunately, I had the correspondence from Senter(Ford) to Maier which proved the manifold was given to him prior to its official introduction and ran in a T/A event or two prior to Maier receiving a Boss 302 from H/M..............otherwise, I would have had to run another period appearing manifold...........

What Randy says is true.........although the Maier car was a '68 S code coupe.  Another clarification...while the Box manifold(with single carburetor top) did make a few less HP than the much later technology of the Vic Jr or Parker(the best motor was 489 HP @7600), it did produce in excess of 400 ft/lbs of torque on a 305 ci engine with original/ported C6FE heads.  I dont know of many combos before or since that did. It was lightly massaged to prevent fuel puddling and performed flawlessly.

BTW, if anyone needs one of these, I still have one with a two carb top sitting at TOE...............PM me.

Spoke with Jim W at length last night.  He is out of town and will review the photo tonight to see if he can remember the date and/or the event at Ontario.  His tentative belief is the event was the Mustang II intro.... will follow-up.  Definitely csx2602, he drove this car frequently during this time period.

Spent two and a half hours with Jim Harrell tonight................a true gentlemen. 

What I can confirm:  the car is the real deal, purchased from Bob Johnson (with a wink and nod, built from a car purchased from a used car lot--not DST or H/M) , raced in A/S by Johnson and Harrell with ALL of the fiberglass parts noted in the Homologation papers--including doors, it was sold by Harrell without suspension or drivetrain (ALL of which was transferred to another car), the homologation papers I have and shared with him are distinctly different from his recollection.  Oh and ................ if you want  add'l information...you'll have to call me---sorry..........history  is interesting  GG
