It is in bare aluminum finish with no paint or coatings. This intake looks more like a piece of jewelry than a mechanical part. I see no breaks or repairs to this intake. There is also no porting or corrosion. The only modification I see is the past owner stamped his initials in various areas on the intake.I imagine this was to ID it in case it was ever stolen. All threads are in good condition with no thread inserts or helicoils. The Holley carbs are both List number 1850-2. They have been setup to be used without the vacuum secondary pods as shown. The carbs are very clean and all parts move freely. They look like they will just need a simple rebuild after decades of cool, dry storage. This is a very nice vintage hot rod intake system. If you don't need the carburetors, I would be happy to sell the the intake by itself. Feel free to make and offer on the intake by itself with a note in the offer that you want the intake by itself.
