    Wanted to get a few different thoughts on this manifold. I believe it is not OEM but not 100% sure. The 6 is a little straighter than my OEM but not in the same form as the rest of the numbers. Appreciate any input.

    Thanks, Randy

    I’ve noticed factory casting numbers will vary in depth/raised height, shape, quality of what you see and straightness.

      The numbers look a little washed out; perhaps someone sandblasted the beejeebers out of it in the past?

        I doubt sand blasting will wear it away but mother time will do some and the quality (or lack there off) in the final casting of the product all add up.

        So you are thinking it is an OEM?

        https://www.forbbodiesonly.com/moparforum/threads/original-mopar-6-pack-intake.107183/ according to this guy it is and my engine builder also said he never saw one without an edelbrock stamp on it. as far as I know for what I researched is that the only one that didn't have the edelbrock stamp was the 1969 1/2. which came on a 440. which the last number is an 8 instead of a 6. I found one of those, and will be installing it in my charger with a fi-tech six pack.

        I don't know if it helps, but the old Edelbrock dual quad I just worked up for Moonshine Speed Shop's '70 hemi Superbird was an original Mopar part on the car. Everything they sent in the batch was original.
