I have a manifold that came with a car I no longer have.  I am posting here first; if there is no interest I will make an account with Datsun1200.com, and then eBay after that.

There is some grinding on the manifold for exhaust manifold clearance and it was machined to put the carbs at un uphill angle of a couple of degrees to fit in a Honda 600 engine bay.

$60 shipped to the GRM crowd ($15 of that is shipping).

That is my understanding; do you want to find out?  I have been trying to get more info, but I am not having great luck.  It is a Cannon 821.  I may be wrong on the 1200.

I did find this:  http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=Aftermarket_intake_manifold

I guess the thing to check is the intake port shape.  Are yours round or oval?

That does match the 1200 in my garage.   Four mounting holes on the top, the bottom shares bolts with the header.

Allow me to reach out to Etifosi.

Does your 1200 have round ports or oval ports?

Not sure it's a 1971 1200.

In reply to akylekoz :

Worst case is pull the manifold and look at the shape, though you might be able to tell from the outside of the manifold shape.  My understanding is that the port shape in the head in the older motors is the size of the circle that fits inside the oval in the ports shown in the first picture.
