That's pretty sweet looking. I'll trade you my boat anchor of an intake and carb for that lol
Here is pretty rare OEM Ford FE 3X2 intake manifold.
I couldn't remember if it was from a T-bird or a Galaxie. After looking at it again, it's off of a Galaxie. The Thunderbird manifolds had all of the carburetors sitting level on the intake, due to the engine sitting relatively level in the chassis. The Galaxie manifolds have the carburetors sitting at a slight incline from front to rear due to the engine being at an angle in the chassis.
This is a 428 SCJ that I am likely going to remove from this boat and hopefully it will end up in a car that it originally came in.

I was kind of hoping that it was a Thunderbird manifold so that we could work out a deal where you are making payments on it for the next 5-10 years, or give me your first born child or something like that...That's pretty sweet looking.

And that's awesome. Back in that brief time I had a 66 Galaxie, I wanted a duel quad intake. Those are such neat cars!

I believe that you are correct!
They were only available on the third generation T-birds in 62-63. Your car is a fourth generation T-bird so it likely has the engine set at an incline, in a more conventional layout.
The 3X2 manifold was a factory option on the FE engines for only 3 years, 61-63. That's why the original OEM manifolds are so rare. For the rest of the FE "run", the factory hot rod manifolds were all 2X4's.
