OEM 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle/Camaro/Nova/El Camino/Malibu SS 396 325HP (L35) 4 Speed Air Cleaner. This assembly has been media blasted and refinished in the correct semi-gloss black finish to present a period correct image. The single snorkel with round end is in good condition and correct for the one year 4 speed only. The base is excellent and features a GM licensed reproduction Air Cleaner Service Decal (CF=1968). Note that the snorkel is canted downward and is perpendicular with the passenger side fender (68 specific). As a nice finishing touch, an original date stamp has been added for further authenticity.
A reproduction chrome low profile dimpled wing nut lid enhances the classic musclecar appearance replete with seal to ensure correct sealing. To complete the package, a new heavy duty air filter, new breather filter, and period correct wing nut are included. To add further distinction, GM licensed 396 Cross Flags and Turbo-Jet 325HP decals are included (loosely installed - permanent installation to be made by the buyer as required) and complement the overall assembly.
This assembly presents well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a rare and genuine GM 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.
This assembly is correct for the following:
396/325HP Chevelle SS/Camaro SS/Nova SS /El Camino 4 Speed
Note: automatic equipped cars featured the ThermAC valve on the top of the snorkel, along with the metal pre-heater elbow and hose connected to the exhaust manifold stove assembly. 4 speed air cleaners were not required to feature this emerging emissions requirement. This assembly differs from the 69 version through various ways: the snorkel was oriented towards the corner of the passenger side fender and featured the breather filter exit on the passenger side.
The assembly will fit factory 4 barrel Quadrajet carburetors with a 5 1/8" diameter flange, as well as Holley (non double-pumper), Carter, and Edelbrock variations without electric choke (some adjustment to the carburetor alignment tangs may be required). If you have modified your carburetor, intake manifold, or valve covers, please inquire first prior to bidding to ensure fitment is correct. Return requests for non-fitment will not be honored.
It will not correctly fit the 68 models due to the orientation of the snorkel and valve cover breather filter outlet location.
