While every manufacturer had their over the counter high performance division in the 1960s and early 1970s, no one did a better job of hiding it than AMC. The smallest member of the American automotive big leagues in this era was always kind of “this close” to putting all the pieces together but ultimately came up short. The same could be said for their Group 19 performance parts. Group 19 was named as such because it was the section of the catalog where the go-fast stuff lived. The parts were good and highly effective, with magazines of the era using them as recommended and picking up 1-2 seconds of elapsed time over stock!
The most awesome of the parts offered, especially early on was this cross ram. While later examples just had the Edelbrock name, this one has the AMC part number and the earlier bolt pattern that make it super cool. Yes, there were fun puddling issues, yes, it would likely not provide the most economical or responsive experience on the street, but as far as moving air in volume one the strip? Big winner.
This manifold is in great shape and even comes with throttle linkage which strikes us a really rare and cool. Not many of these were made and not many were sold, especially one with this early look and feel.
If you have an AMC and want some factory Day 2 high performance flavor, do it.
like amc stuff .
