Cool intake manifold

Good Morning all . I have my 67 camaro when i bought her in 1976 it had a edelbrock intake manifold which is still on her becides patent numbers the only numbers on it is on the front left on a rased pad, TM-1 could anyone tell me about this manifold is it good or should i change it to something new.I had to change my carb this year from the carter to a edelbrock 1406 600cfm.the carb looks so good that it makes the intake manifold look like crap.so i eather want to have it refinished or replace it the engine is a stock 350 well let me know thanks

Re: intake manifold

I think it may be their old "Tarantula" intake. Don't remember much beyond that. Read down a ways.

Smile Re: intake manifold

I figure it is OK, but probably that a new Victor Jr. will be better.

They did fine in their day is all....

Re: intake manifold

if its a tarantula id keep it. classic cool. I have an x-c8 i have been DIEING to find a project to use it on but the new ride has a bbc. If your not building a race car why not take the theme with your classic intake go with some edelbrock finned valve covers ect and do a time period ride. Thats always a crowd pleaser

Re: intake manifold

Have it media blasted and use as is or paint it. I used the VHT 1200* aluminum paint in a spray bomb.
