1968 OLDSMOBILE 4-4-2 AIR CLEANER ASSEMBLY
OEM 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 400 Oval Snorkel Air Cleaner. This assembly has been refinished to present a period correct image. The single snorkel with oval end (as opposed to smaller unit with pressed end for 350 cars) is in very nice condition and features a fully functional ThermAC pre-heater along with new white striped vacuum lines (without factory over-spray). The base is very clean and comes with a correct air temperature sensor (ATS) installed with the original retainer. The exterior features a GM licensed reproduction Air Cleaner Service Decal (OG=68) that replaces the originally located silk screen. As an added measure, an original date stamp has been recreated to add a nice touch of authenticity. This assembly is specific to 1968 cars due to the location/inclusion of the filter breather outlet, snorkel size/orientation, and pre-heater inlet location on the bottom of the snorkel.
An OEM lid enhances the assembly and features an original seal. To complete the package, a new heavy duty air filter , along with a new breather filter with GM stamped adapter, and period correct wing nut are included.
To enhance the assembly further, a beautiful new GM licensed aluminum 4-4-2 pan with stainless steel retainer are included (loosely installed) to complement the assembly. These were originally glued down, but due to potential Rocket 400/455 buers, remains loosely installed.
This assembly presents very well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!
