In the 70s we ran across a 69 six pack setup that was not ported to allow the secondary pull-offs to function.Stop spreading old wives tales about six paks and their poor reliability.
In reality a six pak is very fuel efficient, will out run it's 4bbl equal and are very very reliable as long as there is not an idiot on the other end of the screwdriver and wrench.
Tom Hoover - remember him? - said many times at the seminars he used to give - that the six pak was efficient, powerful and worked better on a hemi than 2-4's. Not a wives tale, lot's of folks were at those seminars back in the 80's. There is still video in peoples possession from back then...and no you won't see it on YT. He also talked about the 4bbl intake for the 72 hemi engine and the research they did on the 72 hemi. That manifold actually exists and could be purchased from direct connection. It even has a provision for heat tubes for manifold heat...
What about that 300 rag top with the hemi? How did that get in there?
There was a tech article that was considered to be gospel and repeated/reprinted many times written by Sal Zaino. I remember it well... He advocated blocking the port to the venturi with lead shot, the idea being this would block the "bleed" to the carb and make the end carbs open faster.In the 70s we ran across a 69 six pack setup that was not ported to allow the secondary pull-offs to function.
Rumored to be sabotaged by holley workers resenting the success of the package. Quite a number of 69s had the
issue. I drilled out an actual carb and use them today. six packs were great fun to stomp on hence the poor mpg
reports. Like long rams,,, great torque pull so everyone ran them hard.
Not factory. I suspect it was done by one of the aftermarket shops that specialized in that trade however...like the company that did the Cordoba convertibles.Thanks for the link to the 75 Imperial convertible
Found the description humorous and didn't see a hose.
I'm guessing it's not a factory made car.
No...these Chrysler Valiants were tiny compared to C bodies...think "A body" when looking at these...like 111 inch wheel base max.
These custom wagons are uniquely Australian and awesome. I think they were midsize and smaller. First one I ever seen of course was the red one in mad max.
