More Pictures from the Archive

Updated: Jun 29, 2023

Howdy All,

I've been so busy with orders that I haven't found a lot of time to do any more blogging on my site. However, I did find some more pictures that I'd like to share with you.


A young Harold Graves, the Original Man-A-Fre Guy.


The earliest known surviving example of the first Man-A-Fre that came to light.


Although conceived in a 1952 patent application by Robert Patrick, by 1955, Harold Graves was influential in furthering Man-A-Fre development with the inventor.


The first working Man-A-Fres carried Stromberg carburetors, early style linkages, and fuel blocks.


Harold Graves was a Rochester man at heart. He and the inventor got the plate changed and drilled to accept the better more powerful Rochester carb - Harold's forte.


Next in the series, this circa 1955-56 plate would carry both Strombergs or Rochesters.

This prime example of the first style of Man-A-Fre is still running today! For many folks working on their pet project car, this is the 'holy grail' of four deuce fuel systems. The first series Man-A-Fre! The fastest, quickest four deuce fuel system ever built.
