I have the engine out of my 25 Coupe for a rebuild. I blasted and painted the exhaust manifold today. What can I find out about it other than it was made in Argentina?
Reproduction exhaust manifolds were made in Argentina for some time.
Back in the '70s if I recall correctly.
The manifold on my '24 is marked the same, Don.
I know of at least 2 on cars.
As I posted recently on a post about a carburetor bearing Industria Argentina, it is a replacement manifold, probably imported by (long closed) Specialized Auto Parts of Houston. We used to get them by the crate (the size of a wooden pallet) and sold them, not only out of our catalog, but since Specialized was one of the first wholesalers to set up a retail dealer network, we shipped hundreds, if not thousands to other retail dealers.
Thanks for the info. I learned something today.
As I stated on another post about the Industria Argentina carburetor, all Industria Argentina parts were imported (likely by Specialized Auto Parts) in Houston. We bought them by the crate as big as a wooden pallet.
I have one of those on my TT
Sorry for the double post. My computer is running slow.
