Exhaust Manifold?
1 Attachment(s)
Hey Guys

I have a manifold on a 327 that isn't the original exhaust manifold , this one was used to make room for the steering Column.

It has this stamped on the front of the manifold: 3837088 GM 2... the number after the two is a mark I can't ID.

Anyone recognize this manifold, year etc.

Thank You

The closest I can tell from searches is a Corvette, 55-57, not an exact match though. They also look a bit like a truck, I can't remember the year though.

Thanks, A mechanic friend had the same impute, maybe a pickup late 50's maybe...

My search is narrowing. I hope!

Thanks again

It LOOKS like a common everyday 55/56 Chevrolet V8 car manifold.$(KGrHqQOKio...)op0gF!_12.JPG

They are almost required to put a 283 in a 40 Ford without moving the steering box. I had a set on my 40 Ford ( with a SBC ). :thumbup:

Does the manifold your referring to have and extended bracket type w/holes for bolting something. It's on the end of the manifold (Left side)?
