New 1969 owner here... The original 3x2 427 has been replaced by a 454. The car still has the original big block hood. Am I correct to assume that the under hood clearance will not accommodate anything taller than a low-rise intake manifold?

Thanks,
Nelson

Assuming  that you didn't retain the 3X2 manifold on the car then you can get a drop-down air cleaner base that allows more clearance to the hood.This might allow a taller manifold.

Thanks. Sounds like a plan. Yeah, the 3x2 427 was probably long gone before I bought it.
