I have seen these for sale once in awhile over the years. I actually saw a complete set up at the big Carlisle meet in PA a few years ago. Last complete one I saw they wanted 6,000 for. They used 440 Mopar carbs. I don't know why they didn't produce them I think they are cool!! They seem to have made a lot more dual quad intakes than 6 barrel ones.

I never saw the 3x2 intakes for the Boss 429 or the 351 Cleveland or even the 2x4 intakes for the Clevelands. Pretty cool !!

Most where experimental except the FE's, and are rare. The coming emmissions regulations stopped them all, around 1971. !973 OPEC oil embargo was a death nail also, for the HP cars on the road. Buyers market for sure back then, for muscle cars. 426 Hemi's where the last of the dual quads that I am aware of, and Chevy never offered Quads with the BB Mark IV, six pack was for about 3 years. Alot of over/under the counter parts around though, at dealers going on they say.

Pretty neat. It would look good on a BBF powered rod.

6-Packs are always Cool. I hear they get pretty good mileage if you keep your foot out of them, too. Great pic's also.
