HUH? I didn't think one was offered. When did cross-ram tech come into being...1960 or 1962 (MOPAR)? Y-BLOCKS were already falling out of favor by then.

Maybe OFFY or someone offering one? EDELBROCK (I believe) offered one for the FE.

Did the ad have a photo? I would surely like the information on that.

I am looking for information concerning factory performance/aftermarket speed parts (1958/1960) used on the MEL (Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln) (Also Thunderbird 59/60) Engine Series (383-410-430-462) produced from 1958 thru 1968.

1958- Vic achieves an industry first by getting one horsepower-per-cubic-inch from a 283 cid small-block Chevy with the new Cross Ram manifold. This breakthrough led Edelbrock to develop manifolds for Pontiac and Chrysler engines as well.

It's in Hemmings under Racing and High Performance parts. First add.
The outfit specializes in OTS parts and always has a 4 inch add.
No pics or brand though.

I never heard of one for Y-block first crossrams ,I ever eember were them long rams for theearly 60's chizlers with the carbs over the fenderwells,then the short ram Max wedge413"'s then the M/T'sand Edelbrock ones,and they were for mainstream engines.I would to see this one or even a picture of it.I turned down a Edlebrock crossram with 2 600 Holleys for FE390-428,from a guy I would see at verious swap meets over course of 3-4 years kept lowering price got down to $600.00.Been kickin myself for years,of course it would be as practical as the 427"Algon FuelInjection I have in a box since I bought it inmid 70's.

Turns out it was an add text mistake on their part.
The intake was a Edelbrock for a 289.

I like my crossram. Now all I have to do is get up the nerve to cut a big hole in the hood so I can install it.

I haven't seen one of those FE dual flower pots in years.

Hey gang-

Offy offerred a bolt-on cross ram adaptor for a stock Y-block intake manifold that would use two four-barrel carbs. You can find them every once and awhile at swap meets. They're pretty cool but I don't know what performance gains you might get with them. Offy still makes some of their old go-fast parts. It might be worth checking with them to see if they still make the cross ram.

Brigand,

Welcome to M&M!

I thought cross ram manifolds had long runners for high RPM. High RPM and Y blocks don't really come together as far as I know.

Those were "S" shaped long ram spacers that were pretty much universal to any dual quad intake.
JC Whitneys used to advertise them.
They were worth nothing performance wise, but did look impressive in the old car magazines back in the old days.
