Hello All,
I just bought a Thickstun two single intake manifold for the Chevy 216-261. I can't find another one any where. I have learned that at a young age, Tommy Thickstun became interested in and designed intake manifolds for Vic Edelbrocks flathead Ford lakester. Any one have knowledge to share ? Thanks..

Only that they are rare. Thickstun died in his early 30s I think, so I'd assume that had something to do with their rarity. A search here on Stovebolt will produce some comments from the past and possibly could help you. He was also part of the Tattersfield design and production of intakes.

This is a current ad on EBay for a Tattersfield with some history.
