Weird carburetor setup

There is an exciting story behind this double 3B carb setup, which belongs to a friend. But the question is, is it worth buying and restoring?

The machining of the Pertinax block appers to be professionally made although the design is of "form follows function" department. The chain drive and the (not shown) linkage of the starters etc. look well made as well. it seems as if the carbs have been modified from 1 acceleration pump plus 1 enrichment pump to 2 acceleration pumps (like Porsche 911?)

A 3C inlet manifold has been used. The trumpets and the airfilter box have been lowered in order to fit the unit under the hood.

Has anyone seen this before?
