I have a brand new one still in the box that I got a deal on back in the 80s. Its the one without the idle dohicky, as I recall. They look cool for sure.
There's a few used ones on eBay, in the $300 range. Rebuild kits, too.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

old iron got it right, but still takes a lot of tuning to get right. a couple of t-bucket men ran them on top of blowers and loved them. they were from a fish design.

Lightbulb nope--

the 2 barrel manifold don't pull enough vacuum to make the predator carb work--runs great to 15OO rpms, then fall flat on it's face--had my carb expert work on it and that is the diagnosis--

my opinion only, valid where prohibited, for official abuse only.
