Carb spacer on the GTE 427?

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

I got mine today, is very nice, it is very heavy metal and is top notch work. I do appreciate it 100%. I’m going to put it on the GT-E this weekend and I will take some pictures and update right here!

Chris did put your plate on, was there any performance increase or is it just a cosmetic thing, I noticed on FE fanatics a pictorial of the plate showing one of the gaskets being bonded to the 1/4 “spacer and the center area trimmed up to match its shape which makes more sense than the center area of the gasket flapping in the breeze.

I had them made , I don’t have that info and I don’t think he’ll give it up, I don’t think he’ll make just one but I’ll see what I can do.
