1967-68 MOPAR 383 440 UNSILENCED AIR CLEANER 'CUDA DART GT CORONET CHARGER R/T & GTX
OEM 1967-68 Mopar 383 / 440 Unsilenced Air Cleaner. This is an original 1967 A-body / early 68 440 big block air cleaner assembly that has been refinished in wrinkle black to present a period correct image. It has been refinished to match the early A-body cars and features the 90 degree nipple on the driver's (LH) side. The "FRONT" impression is visible through the wrinkle paint and helps to orient the assembly for installation as the factory had intended. The exterior features a reproduction Mopar Air Cleaner Service Decal. The wrinkle finish presents very nicely on the top.
The base is a factory issued piece with the "new for 68" 5 1/8" flange that fits the later model Carter/Holley/Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetors.
To complete the assembly, a new heavy duty air filter and period correct wing nut are included. A "Made in Canada" stamp has been added as a nice finishing touch. The wrinkle finish is very nice as well.
The assembly comes with a choice of pie pans: 383 Commando 383 Magnum 440 Super Commando 440 Magnum -authentic to both the 'Cuda and Dart GTS cars featuring these engines, as well as the 68 GTX and Coronet R/T & Charger R/T.
This assembly is in very nice condition and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a rare and genuine Mopar part!

Many of our parts are available only once - we cannot predict if/when another will become available due to the scarcity of original parts. 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 history of the larger unsilenced air cleaners centers on the first iterations of A-body big block cars produced outside of the Chrysler channels. Mr. Norms Grand Spaulding Dodge dealership shoe-horned Chrysler big blocks (383s) into the 67 A-bodies and sold them outright. Chrysler execs finally figured out that they too could do it too and began a modest production run for late 67. The air cleaners were modified Coronet R/T & GTX assemblies that featured the unsilenced option (that would follow with the revision of the more common 68-69 smaller versions). Once the air cleaners were made, they weren't all used up for the 67 run. Chrysler installed the leftovers on early 68 A-bodies, as well as early 440 Coronet and Charger R/Ts & GTX models. The center cones were the larger ones designed to incorporate the classic pie pan engine ID plates. This detail has been corroborated through multiple authenticating channels.
This assembly is correct for the following 1967 383/440 high performance models:
Dart GT 383
For the early 1968 big block cars manufactured after June 1967, the remaining stock of unused air cleaners were used on models such as the Plymouth GTX and the Dodge Charger R/T and Coronet R/T. While this was a short term use, these air cleaner assemblies were original to these early cars and have been documented through a Mopar Nationals B body judge.
It will fit A/B/C/E-body cars ranging from 64-73 as well with the larger carburetor flange. It is correct for the late 67/early 68 B/RB cars as mentioned.
The assembly will fit 4 barrel carburetors with a 5 1/8" diameter flange such as Holley, Carter AVS, and Edelbrock variations.
