After a quick MasterCam layout it is obvious
that on small chassis cars you would have
problems with the wiper motor AND you
would have to get very creative about the
air filter assemblies.

Using the dual 4bbl manifold is preferred
as it is structurally stronger making it 
easier to attach the adapter plate.

Having no 2300 carbs or Offy manifolds
to use as a pattern at this time it appears 
you would have to use the special "300-521 Tri-power package"
Carbs to make them fit.

While very cool looking I am sure it suffered horribly from proper fuel distribution with that setup.Thumbs Down

Looks cool usually rules!

You can make a 6V set-up for an AMC but it will cost about 3 X the
cost of two carters on an Offy.

But bling does sell...

While not the easiest or most cost effective, but in my opinion the coolest way to get a factory look 3 x 2 intake for an AMC is the use an AMC Air Gap base and buy an Edelbrock 383 DP6B intake like this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-383-400-SIX-PACK-INTAKE-MANIFOLD-3X2-DODGE-CHRYSLER-MOPAR-EDELBROCK-DP6B/232967854176?epid=7024850159&hash=item363df75860:g:7lUAAOSwvO5bxUse:rk:1:pf:1&vxp=mtr&frcectupt=true

Cut them both apart and graft it together. The plus side of doing it with this intake is you can buy carbs, linkage, and air cleaners off the shelf and if time and care is taken it will look like a factory 401 6V intake. If I wanted a 6-pack setup this is the way I would do it.

Like I said....

Cost is no barrier if you gotta have it.

And I like the idea!

Grafting the manifold on is easy, machining
and welding or screwing so it does not leak air or water is the hard part.

But the cool factor is un deniable....:-)

Not sure if this was mentioned but Hogan will make any manifold you want.

Sure they will if you want to spend $4000 on one.

FYI: None of your links are correct. When you past a URL into the hyperlink box you must delete the second http:// or it will not work.
