That 6 with OD should be a great road car

My 52 Mercury with overdrive back in the day would get 23 mpg if I drove it like I had some sense. I know George isn't worrying about gas mileage but that Ford six should do even better.

That car is going to need a split manifold and a pair of smittys. Can't beat the sound of an old straight six rigged out that way. :-)

OK Robert, Iíve been doing Model T s for 51 Years now. And I like performance items of the era and have installed same on my many Ts. Some have NH straight through, some have U&Js and one even has a Stromberg OF 1. I aim to restore and keep the flathead 6 in this coupe but donít, for the life of me, know what a ďsplit manifold and pair of smittysĒ are! Please enlighten me. :o)

Split exhaust manifolds are an old hot rod trick for straight sixes. Gives you dual exhaust and the smittys are glass pack mufflers.

Thanks Dave. I expect Iíll be soon learning a lot more after I get this coupe home. Gorgeous roadster in your profile and I enjoyed your personal quote too!

Thanks for the compliments George,
Funny thing about that picture of my car, it was not a photo-op. Just happens to be where I ran out of gas and was waiting to be rescued!

Smithys not Smittys


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Robert G. Hester Jr., Riverview, FL on Monday, January 22, 2018 - 10:43 am:

Hi, George. Those old inline sixes usually have only five exhaust ports, the center one exhausting cylinders 3 & 4. The intake and exhaust manifolds are bolted together at that point to provide heat for the intake. Guys would cut the exhaust manifold in two behind the center port, block off the two ends and cut an outlet in the back part to hook up another pipe. The two pipes would be installed with a pair of smittys or cherry bomb mufflers. This arrangement leaves the engine exhausting four cylinders through one pipe and two through the other. I seriously doubt that this will do anything for the cars's performance but it'll make a sound that will stir the soul.

Hey, we were teenagers, it didn't have to make sense. :-)

Beautiful shoe box ford

Ed, I think "Smittys" is a slang term for the "Smithys", at least it was around here. Dave

Robert, a "2/4" split sure does have a sound all it's own. :-) Of course it helped the car's performance, didn't every modification? :-) :-) Dave

Also flames painted on the sides picks up a couple MPH. True story, read it in consumer reports

:-) Okay, you guys are right. All that stuff made 'em faster. Split manifolds, flames, fender skirts, Olds spinners, moth balls in the gas tank, etc. We had those old cars so hot it's a wonder we didn't all kill ourselves. Those were the days. :-) :-)

It must be a very early 50 if it has the external hinges on the trunk. They were on the 49's and very early 50's. Nice car, George!!!

i once owned a 1949 club coupe , with fenton dual exhaust, v8 flathead, dual carbs. Great car. I miss it.

The coupe was always more sporty looking. I have a back seat witch I think is unusual.

Gee, gosh, golly; thanks for all the input and accolades guys. I am, indeed excited about the week-away receipt of this coupe. I sent Bob the check 2 days ago and contracted with his car hauler recommendation the same day. I expect to keep the flathead six; maybe find some era correct performance add ons and was disappointed to find out blue dot tail light lenses are illegal in Texas. One thing Iím NOT going to do is hang on one of those gaudy Continental Kits. Thanks again Bob. Iíll be phoning you Friday or Saturday. !!

You might check with the classic ford group that drives and shows this model, it may be OK for antique registration and plates, a lot of things are OK on antique's that wont normally fly, No Inspection sticker, seat belts, brake lights, turn signals, single tail light and the list goes on, I wouldn't worry about the blue dot, I doubt there are many police officers who would know the law on the blue dot or care, if they did might use it as excuse to pull You over and look at Your car. This would be something that would be caught in a vehicle inspection and with Antique plates You don't need one, plus only one rear license plate required a lot of exceptions for old cars registered as antiques in Texas.
X Cop Jim, Good luck
