In warmer climates or during the warmer months you really don't need to warm up the carburetor plenum to help drivability. This intake manifold set with block off plates blocks the exhaust from running under the carburetor which results in a denser fuel mixture and more power. It will also keep the paint from burning off the intake in that area. Danchuk # 14867 will work on any 1955-1956 classic Chevy with a small block V8.
Danchuk has the largest selection of quality 55, 56, 57 parts for your classic Chevy project.
