    Works for me.

    Bill, the 58 Plymouth trans is a representative of the torque flight A488. The 57 Chrysler is a better one, but it's more a situation of what's at hand.

    Google is your friend. Search "3d coffin casket file". look for stl. obj. etc. files. I saw some.

    I have a 56 AMT Ford Crown Vic that has both single and duel quad manifolds with Holley carbs.

    Very nicely done Al. That license plate would work twice as good for me as that kit was the last one I built in 1960 until 2003.

    One advantage of reading a thread totally through from start to finish is that you don't ask questions that have already been covered. I direct you to Zoom Zoom's post on page one of this thread for your answer.

    It might help to know which hardtop.

    My 59 Olds model has the one below.

    I made a rtv mold in order to get the first one on my upcoming 59 Olds build.

    Although I have a vacuum former, I agree with Bill and find that process is alot easier to use. I use my heat gun set on low temp and the windshields come our perfect.

    The problem is that , although the A engine was introduced in 1956, it was only used in the Plymouth until 1959. The poly engine in your 56 Dodge is the earlier version that uses the hemi as it's basis and is not related to the A engine. I have the heads and valve covers for the hemi version, but there is no single 4bbl manifold that I know of for it. The wcfb carb would work though. I will be doing a 55 and 56 Dodge some time in the future, but they will be D-500s and have hemi engines.  Yes, this A engine will be available for purchase soon.

    Update. The 4 bbl manifold file is done and I am in the process of scaling it to fit with one of Joseph's A.F.B.'s. The air cleaners for a duel quad setup are done. I have successfully made r.t.v. molds and resin cast those parts that will be supplied that way. The rest of the parts will be 3d printed as I can print multiple copies of them at one time and they hold detail MUCH better.

    I actually prefer Roger Moore as Bond, but that may have been influenced by my watching him as Simon Templer in the 60's t.v. series The Saint.

    I'm moving right along on this project and plan on completion the end of May. I have successfully resin cast the block and heads. The heads have a location piece to help with getting them in the correct position. Once on the block, the intake manifold fits perfectly. The 4bbl manifold is about 2/3rds drawn.

    Some years back, someone posted a link to engine colors. I made a file of it and don't have the web address. Here are the flathead engine colors by year.
