Hi: I have finally decided to part with my Latham setup. This belongs in a museum. Seriously, if not for its completeness, then for who originally purchased it!
If you don't know what a Latham is, its an axial flow supercharger that was designed to fit under the hood of passenger cars in the 50s and 60s. This Latham added 8 lbs of boost but stole only 10 HP to achieve that. Its a much more efficient design than a centrifugal or a rotary supercharger. If you have a 50's or 60s rod, this is a period correct piece that will create the ultimate street sleeper, as well as turn heads at every car show. There were only about 600 of these ever made. Latham Ford FE intakes are very rare as most Lathams were sold to Chevy owners. Perfect for you Thunderbird, Galaxie Fairlane, Mustang Fairlane, Torino, F100 and F150 owners.
This is a rare, rare, rare opportunity. Only 600 units were ever made. This is a complete unit for the Ford or Mercury FE engine family (332, 352, 390, 406, 427, 428). The blower spins freely. In fact, a simple twist of the hand and it keeps on spinning after you'd expect it to stop. It features the original Carter YH carbs: four of them. This is the longer, 4-carb racing version of the blower. The model is 16-A and the serial number is 001XXX.
The carbs have been overhauled. No gas has been run through them since. The carbs are clean inside and out. Each carb includes an original Stellings and Hellings air filter with chrome caps (Note, two of the caps has some chrome bubbling). The air cleaners even have the original copper wool inside. The manifold has been bead blasted and is as clean as a whistle.
