  Winters did much of GM’s aluminum intake manifold casting much the same way Buddy Bar did it for Ford.

     Sounds like a good guess then. I was just curious. We did heads and blocks as well as the manifold business. Also machined the parts and did the entire Cosworth Vega program. Ram Air 5 Pontiac parts and Dr. Oldsmobiles tunnel port stuff. Fun time.

Does anyone know who cast the 2X4 manifold for the '57 Merc 368?

I believe the casting source for the 312 aluminum intake manifolds was Schmeller Aluminum Foundry in Cleveland.  That name shows up in some of the paperwork.  In addition, Schmeller was a source for other aluminum sand cast components to Ford.

A majority of the high performance FE engine series aluminum intake manifold castings was Buddy Bar. With Dearborn Steel Tubing Co. doing the machining and assy, as they also did on the high performance Y Block components. 

Regards,

Dennis

Dennis.  Thanks for the additional info.  It’s always good to see you chime in with that hard to find Ford history and information.
