I presently have two supercharged Auburn in my shop, one is a certified one and the other one is having every original parts to make it look alike and since that there is even the originals exhaust manifold and piping, and since that it dosent seem like there are reproduction parts available I was wondering if this car was an original supercharged one that they had remove the supercharger or that somone had the chance to find all original parts to do the conversion? Any input would be very appreciate since that I am very intrigued by this situation...;Thanks.

Does your car have a serial number GG engine or a GH? I have seen cars that had been converted back to standard configuration.
There are reproduction parts available, although S/C intake manifolds have not been reproduced.
Also, there are other ways of determining if the car was a factory S/C. (A closely held secret.) I would have to see your car in person, however.

Yes they have.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Where are those engine numbers punched?
I will post very soon pictures of the original exhaust manifold from the NON supercharged one...

stamped on top of engine block, next to head, Front left (driverside) corner.
Having a GH engine does not necessarily mean that it came from the factory that way, however.
