1957 CHEVY POWERPAK 283 4V OIL BATH AIR CLEANER 210 BEL AIR
OEM 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 150 210 Cameo Nomad Napco Apache PowerPack 283 4 Barrel Oil Bath Air Cleaner. This piece has been finished to factory appearances in the correct semi-gloss black finish to present a period correct image. The scalloped single snorkel is in very nice condition with typical factory impressions on both top and bottom and complements the starburst top nicely. The top interior features the reinforcement plate that is spot-welded on - the spot welds carry over to the exterior as created by the factory. The exterior features the correct Red and Blue AC heavy duty air cleaner service decal located in the factory position as well.
The base is very clean and correct for the 57 models and features the correct fuel inlet indentation and an original rubber oil bath gasket that sandwiches between the base and the oil bath. The "front" and "oil level" callouts are clear and allows proper indexing of the base over the carburetor. The oil bath "spaceship" is exceptionally nice all around and ready for service - the top has been cleared to prevent typical surface rust. A period correct air cleaner wingnut is included to make installation straight forward.
This assembly presents very well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!
