If not, a good metal fabricator could create one probably or mill off the top of a existing manifold and tig on a new carb mount area, wouldn't be cheap obviously.
Might be crowding the distributor with 6 of them though, the 4x2 weber setup is pretty much wall to wall on a chevy smallblock from what I've seen in pictures. Maybe a pair of three barrel webers runing north-south like they used on the 911 Porsche. FWIW.

I don't think I have ever seen a SBC mainfold with six Webers down the middle but the last time I talked to Mickey at Inglese http://www.Inglese.com he had 24 unmachined intake manifolds left that have four Webers running straight down the middle. It uses dual choke IDF type Webers exactly like the early Ferrari's. However, there isn't any room for the distributor so you have to run a special angle drive or front drive type.
Mickey had this setup on his T-Bucket and offered to sell the whole thing to me for $3,000. It looks awesome with eight chrome stacks sticking straight. The whole top of the engine is carburetor.
How about helping with our Ferrari 250 GTO kit questions once in awhile?

Definately not going to be cheap; but if that's what you're looking for-call him; a phone call never hurts.
Along w/Wilson's number-here are some other sources you may wish to call & pick their brains...never know who knows who till ya ask/you know these shops gotta network w/each other!
The Carburetor Shop
Fast Freddies (Webers)
Mikuni America Corp
Herman Enterprises (Intake Stacks)
Hope this helps; BTW-David Vizard did a comparison against a 650 Holley, 850 Holley & a set of 4 Webbers on an engine-the 4webber set up outperformed the others from start/low idle all the way up to 6300rpm's.

Speed, thanks for the kind words, I'll be happy to answer any questions I can. As you know, the kit car thing is a side business for me, so I'm not online 24/7.
