1965 L79 327/350HP NOS DUAL SNORKEL AIR CLEANER BASE CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SS OEM
1965-66 L79 327/350HP NOS Chrome Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner base. This is possibly the last NOS OEM L79 base that features the spot welded ridged base that retains the 5 1/8" carburetor flange with an original flame arrestor tube and corresponding vacuum nipple original to L79 engines. It retains the original lacquer paint and foam seal installed by the factory. The 5 1/8" inserts was specific to this engine option in the marquee mid-size Chevelle/Malibu featuring a Holley carburetor that ventured away from the new Quadrajet or the Carter AVS from Corvettes. The unique flame arrestor tube is angled specifically to fit the rear engine venting system. All of these details are not present in the reproduction pieces, as they are stamped in a single piece and come with a generic tube without the vacuum nipple.
Many of our parts are available only once - we cannot predict if/when another will become available due to the scarcity of original parts. This is the only NOS one we have ever seen in many years - it will likely be the last available for these rare and desirable cars. The old adage "here today, gone tomorrow" applies to many of these unique assemblies. While we strive to maintain a strong diversity of desirable parts, there simply aren't enough available to meet demand at times.
The assembly presents well and will augment your restoration. Best of all, it is an ultra-rare NOS GM Part!
