Cord Intake Question was created by 1748 S
When did our Cord intake manifold come with ONLY three bolt studs to secure the carburetors to them? This ebay find seems odd to me. Also there appears to be no part numbers found on the bottom either..

I’ve had a couple of them. Came on early Cords and I’ve also seen them with an adapter plate that would accept a 4 bolt carb.

Thanks Cliff. Were these common on the hand built 35 or 36 Cords? Ebay had one listed that was drilled for the three bolt or four bolt Strombergs. Not sure why but suppose an owner had to use a model 97 just to drive the car...

i just chalk it up as one of the many Cord oddities. I've even seen one S/C upper cover made for a two bolt carb, not a 4 bolt AA25 carb.

I believe this manifold was originally fitted to a Hand Built Cord engine that used an EE-1 carburettor. For more detailed information see The Reunion Book No 2 page 134. Bill Bicknell wrote an extensive article on the Hand Built Cord oddities or differences from later production cars. Now where is the rest of the car?

Terry, I know of a 35 hand built being restored very nicely. It was owned by the E.L. Cord family at one time. The now owner purchased it from an owner in Claifornia. I believe it had a chevy engine and rear drive but the original engine came with it. Another well known ACD member sold a replacement engine needing less work to make it to the ACD meet this September. Have emailed to the now owner and sold parts to him. I have been watching the restoration on the ACD facebook site as have many others.
