    Thanks to latoracing for providing me with some pointers on how to form the flanges. 
    Below are some photos of the driver's vent that I've been working on. I need about 3/4 of the circumference on this vent and a little less on the passenger side. I decided to go a slightly different route and form the needed flange out of two pieces to see if I could avoid fabricating forms. I used primarily a bench vice, two pliers (one positioned on each side of the bend radius), a hammer, and some scrap pieces of metal to help form a sharper bend radius. Oh, and some cardboard to make a template (only a DiGiorno pepperoni and cheese box will work here).
    The final photo is of the two fabricated flanges held in place only with some welding magnets, so they're not completely flat.

    69Mach1 M code got a reaction from RPM in Carb pad height   
    I measured the Weiand 8023WND intake on the engine and the results are 6 inches in the back and 4-1/2 inches in the front; Carb pad height = 5.25 inches.
    I double checked the measurements I posted above for the original cast iron intake and stand by them. The p/n is C90E-9425-E with a casting date of 9E15. I purchased the car in the mid-80's from the original owner. 
    The scene where Ken Miles was hammering on the boot to provide clearance for the mandatory spare tire is flashing through my head now ................

    Thank you to everyone who responded to this thread, and for taking the time for the photos and measurements. It was very informative and hopefully will help someone in the same situation in the future.
    I ended up ordering the installation kit # 3735587. The shifter lined up with the console installed.

    I've referred to Explorer's as Exploder's since the Firestone fiasco. Rather fitting.

    Thanks for your very detailed explanation, Doug. I'll take the dive into the shallow end of the pool this weekend and order the parts. I should have it installed the following weekend to report back.
