I am in the process of trying to finish the assembly of my y block. I would really like an aluminum timing cover and aluminum mummert intake  for  a truck style engine. I think the ones for t bird are different. 
I have a two barrel and a small opening 4 bbl intake now. I spoke to John and he said he has nothing available at this time. He is  not sure at what point they will be ready. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.

FWIW, the “bird intake” from John and the Blue Thunder just have a lower mounting pad for hood clearance, you could use a spacer if you wanted. Sorry, I don’t have any of the above available. Might check with peglegrice here on the forum, see what he has left. Probably a long shot on the front cover.

Probably could find a dual quad intake (that I"m selling) this Saturday at the "Real Mans Yard Sale" up in your neck of the woods if interested.

The Truck and T' Bird castings are the same. I do not have any covers left, John Mummert bought my tooling 8 or 9 Years ago.

I think the Blue Thunder is available new. The manufacturer doesn't sell direct but people who sell them may. Their website lists dealers that handle them.Love the one on my T Bird.  A factory B maniflold is not a bad option either.

Depending on what your truck is used for & what weather it will be driven in, a Mummert Intake may not be your best route anyway, because it does not have a heated crossover for the carb base or choke.  A Blue Thunder does have a crossover, or as suggested an ECZ-B intake (1957 & later for the later carb base configuration ) would be a good choice.. Note,  however that sometimes the crossover choke heat tube in a "B"  needs to be replaced..
