Rootes put DCOE 40's on a UK version of the fastback Sunbeam Alpine/Rapier in
the early 70's. you could probably find some photos by Googling "Sunbeam H120"
which was the Holbay engine designation. I know they were also used on Alfas
of the same vintage. That was probably much more widely available. I had them
on my Alpine for a while and loved them, but I never got them properly
synchronized or jetted and gave up after about 6 months. I later realized that
my manifold was defective and will one day try again. They were a blast!
