Offenhauser #5162 dual quad manifold. Pont. See pics. They still use the same model#. I've seen this # listed for years 55-64.

$478.00 Summit retail. NW Chi-town

THE GOOD: I had it bead blasted clean, then cleared it with VHT 1200. It is NOT blue. the pics look blue, but it is natural aluminum. There are NO dents or srcatches.

The ports have been gasket-matched to gasket size. 1.125 x 2.185

The carb throttle bores are enlarged to 1-5/8 to match AFB-Edelbrock carbs on adapters. Cannot use Holley carbs!!

It can still be used with the original Rochester small base carbs.

All threads are clean. Bolts and adapters shown included.

No linkage...............

THE (not so) BAD: Someone milled the waterjacket area to remove previous corrosion. It has to be used with a double gasket in that area. That is an old trick to salvage expensive manifolds. It WILL seal fine. And if you use the grey sealer it will be unnoticable. Or, weld it up and remachine it.

Some of the boltholes to the head have been elongated to fit some seriously milled heads. Not a problem, washers cover them nicely.

This manifold should make some serious power on a good motor.
