1956 CHEVROLET 150 210 265 4 BARREL POWERPAK OIL BATH AIR CLEANER BEL AIR NOMAD CAMEO
OEM 1956 Chevrolet Impala Bel Air 150 210 PowerPak 265-4 Barrel Oil Bath Air Cleaner. This piece has been finished in the correct semi-gloss black finish to present a period correct image. The recessed oval snorkel is in nice condition and complements the starburst top nicely. The base is very clean and correct for the 56 models.The exterior features a GM licensed reproduction red and blue heavy duty Air Cleaner Service Decal correct for the era.
The base is clean and presents well, allowing the "OIL LEVEL" marker to clearly be seen. The oil bath "spaceship" stands clean; it has been cleared and ready for service and comeswith the original oil bath to base gasket. As an added value, the assembly comes with a period correct wing nut and original carburetor stud to complement the installation. The base will only fit OEM carburetors with the 4 1/8" flange (Rochester 4GC, WCFB, Carter AFB); it will not fit more modern versions like Edelbrock/Holley/Carter AVS).
The snorkel is correct for the 56, measuring 6" in length from the base of the top to the end of the snorkel. The interior portion of the snorkel retains the factory dent for clearance as well. Since these were leaded into position, there remains very small particles of lead near the attaching point - common for all 55/56 models.
This assembly is in very nice condition and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!

Impala, Bel Air, Biscayne, Nomad, Cameo, Napco Truck, 150, 210, Apache
*The snorkel length is 6" +/- from the flange to the base of the lid (55's had a 5 1/4" snorkel length). While it will fit 55's, it is technically incorrect.
The assembly will fit factory Rochester and WCFB carburetors or other round entry carburetors featuring a 4 1/8" flange. If you have modified your carburetor or intake manifold, please inquire first prior to bidding to ensure fitment is correct. Return requests for non-fitment will not be honored. Please note that due to the height of the assembly, it will not clear 57-58 hood lines.
