'54-'55 "Uterus" Manifold   Price: $1300
Uber rare '54 and '55 "Uterus" intake manifold. This one is so rare that many hardcore VW 36hp enthusiasts never knew they existed. But it is seen in the '54 and '55 Bug and Bus owners manual. Lore is that they rusted out internally and your engine stopped running before you got home from the dealership, and were quickly replaced by the standard 701E 36hp intake. An ultra rare part if are a detail nut and have a '54 or '55.

This one came off of a low hour industrial engine I am told. It was in perfect shape when I got it with no rust at all (not even surface rust) and there have been no repairs made to it of any kind. I paid dearly for it many years ago and now after restoring it, am letting it go. It was first set up on my intake jig that I use to restore jacketed K manifolds to insure that all the flanges were in the exact position (they are). Then it was media blasted and painted with a satin black high temp paint and baked at 220F for an hour. Lastly it was pressure tested to make sure it did not have the well known internal rust-out that allowed passage between the heat riser and intake runner tubing. At 30+psi in the heat riser, there was no air into the intake runner at all. Higher resolution pics available.

New set of intake gaskets included. Will we be well packed and shipped in a brand new box that I buy for my intake restoration business. PayPal accepted with NO additional fee, insurance at buyer's discretion. Will ship UPS Ground from zip 01827 if insured for selling price. Package weight is 6lbs if you want to estimate shipping cost at UPS.com.
