If you're building a period-correct street rod or Can-Am car from the 60's, this is a 48IDA Weber manifold common to that period.
The Sharp intakes were one of the few made for rectangular ports, but the most interesting feature is the super low-profile of these manifolds. They are assembled with spacers to raise the carburetors enough for the linkage to clear the manifold. These are very low manifolds. As you will see, the runner length is minimal.
Also notice the original screw-in oil filler cap, which is a nice feature.
It's available with new carburetors, fuel lines, and complete linkage system, and will be shipped "ready for startup" for $5200, in natural finishes, with chrome plated velocity stacks.
Pictured at left is another photo of the black unit shown on the previous page, which gives a better view of the detailing and the linkage layout. This was a really stunning piece showing the effect of subtle finishes and the detail that can be acheived without using any chrome.
CURRENTLY, ALL USED PARTS IN THE SHOP HAVE BEEN SOLD. MANY USED ITEMS COME AND GO BEFORE I HAVE A CHANCE TO LIST THEM, BUT WHEN MORE USED PARTS BECOME AVAILABLE, I LIST THEM HERE.
IF YOU HAVE ANY USED WEBER 48IDA, DCOE, OR IDF CARBURETORS, OR A USED COMPLETE WEBER V8 CARBURETION SYSTEM FOR SALE, FEEL FREE TO SEND A PHOTO AND CALL TO HAVE IT LISTED. THIS WILL BE A NEW SERVICE FOR 2015 IF THERE IS INTEREST.
