Buick powered GMC/La France

Check out EBAY item 263674723479 . Shown is a 1929 or 1930 Buick Master series engine. The first thing I noticed is the down draft intake and carb. These are not Buick pieces, as the exhaust manifold outlet is in the center. I heard years ago that certain 1940s GMC inline manifolds could be used. It looks very usable setup for those tired of their updraft issues. What do you guys know about this?

Not much, other than someone posted a picture of a Buick 6 a while back that had been cut into a pickup, probably long ago. It had a similar downdraft setup.

20's era Buick manifolds are often turned up side down to accommodate down draft carbs for better fuel efficiency. 

I know that GMC trucks used 6 cylinder Buick engines in the late 20's - 1930 with the original updraft carbs.
