Just the exhaust manifold from a vaporizer carb assembly . Common for 1927 Model T Ford

Bob is right, of course. :D Ford part numbers begin at 2500. The Ford part number for a Vaporizer manifold is 6272, and the factory number is 4483C. It's not a Model T Ford part.

After market manifold to fit Model T Ford. Most likely works similar to a vaporizer.

As Jim noted, could be this one.....there were so many different aftermarket vaporizers offered.
