these came in the rare MPC/AMT '28 Model A two door sedan 

 

 

 

 

YES YES YES...I knew there were some more somewhere. I'm looking in my kit now. It's incomplete, but my curiosity is rampant.

 

EDIT: Yup, there they be, but they're a little fat. They DO have closer to the shape at the rearmost-port (that's shown in Greg's post 10) than the ones in the '49 Merc have.

The thru the inner fender style of wedge headers from the old JoHan kit are reproduced by MCW,, Model Car World, maker of resin kits, parts and OEM paint colors.

 

A direct copy of the old JoHan headers.

I don't think the Tri Y manifolds were ever used in a production car

1964 Dodge Ramcharger & Plymouth Super Stock 426 Stage III Short Ram Engine with Tri-Y Exhaust Manifolds. The Stage III Max Wedge engine was the scourge of the drag strips in the early 1960s. Chrysler made one last improvement with these gigantic cast iron exhaust manifolds called "Tri-Y". It is estimated that less than 10 were actually built in this configuration, mainly because these Tri-Y manifolds were not only super heavy, the very first thing all drag teams did was take off thefactory cast iron manifolds and bolt on custom tubing headers.

That's one seriously wild iron casting. I'd like the hear the cursing and swearing at the foundry as the workers tried to keep the sand cores from breaking up during handling. I bet THAT'S the real reason only 10 sets were made. B)

Funny you should say that, just what I was thinking, what a bear it must have been to cast.  :o Certainly a little bit different than the injection "molding" we're used to in plastic.

The '28 Ford sedan units don't fit the car (a set of headers was included).  They were meant to be used on the engine if it were built as a display item, separate from the car.  They are on the "fat" side and probably wouldn't fit too many "in scale" installations.

Pretty. Drool drool. Bet it's a bugger to tune spot-on though.

Tri Y manifolds were very popular in the Pontiac Cars. 180 degree Stock Car headers were also in the Tri Y configuration to promote the low end torque needed in short track racing.
