Default 305A intake manifold

Are the single barrel carb intake manifolds in much demand? I have acquired one with the carb when cleaning out my dad's shop. I can't use it but didn't know if I could sell it or if it's just a boat anchor. I have earlier AD Chevy and GMC trucks ('51-'53).

Thanks.

I personally have not seen much demand for them, especially with the popularity of the 500 cfm 2 barrel upgrade(using a 305E 2 barrel manifold with an adapter). But those that are looking to do a stock rebuild and are in need of a carb and manifold would be looking for one for sure. Others will chime in I hope, parts are getting scarce so to me...having any part on the shelf is never a bad idea. Even if it is in less demand.

Main thing is how much you are trying to get for it. That small of a manifold won't go a for whole lot, but for the right price....and if shipping isn't a deal killer...I'm sure someone would take it.

Welcome Magfarm! Probably in demand for someone doing a correct restoration or just parts. Do you any other Gmc v6 parts? I'd post a pic of the intake and carb just for show.

Thanks Funky, unfortunately there were no other V6 parts...my dad did a lot of parts trading.

Looks to be a Zenith 1bbl used on the 305B V6 in medium duty trucks A medium duty truck with that little of carburetion had to have been real sluggish. I think GMC learned a lesson from that mistake

That carb looks just a bit bigger than the one on the briggs vertically opposed twin! Glad they at least went with the 2 barrel.
