I have'nt followed this whole thread but Pontiac also had a rare dual quad 
manifold in 1956. From what I found out. only about 200 were made. I picked 
one up at a swapmeet eons ago for $6.00.
Sold it on ebay several months ago for $230. to help fund my V8 project. Saw 
a complete, refurbished 56 Pontiac dual quad setup listed for $1500......of 
course it did not sell!
