A few more carbie units I have been working on

ABOVE:  Rare Almquist slingshot adapter.  There original chrome early Stromberg's (It's ol' school chrome from the 50's- so you know it will last another lifetime).  You can bolt this unit to either a single two barrel intake, or a four barrel intake.   This unit is for sale.  Contact Dick to work out a price.

ABOVE:  This is a six two barrel unit, Offenhauser intake for a 409 Chevy, with Holley 94 carburetors.  It has a progressive linkage custom made by Dick himself  (NO CHINESE CRAP HERE).  The fuel rail is a smooth chrome polished unit that matches the chrome scoops, and the chrome oil cap.  This was made for a customer in North Carolina.

BELOW:  This an extremely rare Edmunds intake for a Lincoln Flathead.  It is about 3-4 inches wider, and at least 6 inches longer than it's Ford counterpart.  This 2x2 Edmunds intake was built for a customer in Germany.  It uses two slingshot adapters with 4 Holley 94's.  The progressive linkage with this unit was also custom built by Dick himself.  Dick has enough experience to handle the intricacies of a tricky linkage like this unit required.  The customer specifically asked that nothing shine- the gloss has been removed from the regulator and the fuel gauge.  And for the real hot rodders, copper was used for fuel lines back in the day- so that's what the customer opted for.  This unit has turned out quit nicely.
