1969-70 Mopar Air Grabber 440 Air Cleaner Coyote Duster
1969-70 Mopar 440 Super Commando / 440 Magnum four barrel Air Grabber Air Cleaner assembly. The original base has been media blasted and refinished in the correct semi-gloss black finish to present a period correct image. The base is in nice condition with a very clean carburetor flange featuring both factory alignment tangs. The original lid retaining bar and studs are excellent as well. The exterior seal flange features typical factory stamping waves and the correct oil filter breather inlet tube on the driver's rear side. A "Made in Canada" stamp has been added as a further measure of authenticity. Please note that this is specific to the 440 models - the center lid bar measures under 2 7/8" from the base to the top of the bar - 383 base plates measured 3.3/8" due to the lower deck height of the B engines.Note that there are minor paint anomalies on the inside of the base near the air horn.
The original lid is nice as well and is garnished with a Mopar Licensed air cleaner service decal. The inside has a "Made in Canada" and original PN stamps to further the level of authenticity. The top is installed with the included pair of period correct wing nuts. The "Coyote Duster" decal adds a very nice touch and enhances the overal image.
To complete the assembly, an original Fram CA332V perforated high performance air filter is included to make the assembly ready to install. Note that this is not the "Vintage Series" that was re-released, it is an original Fram featuring black lettering instead of the later blue lettering. Please inquire if you would prefer a K&N filter instead of the Fram item - this will allow for a lower price point.
This assembly is in very good condition and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a very rare (difficult to find) and genuine original Mopar part!
Note that reproduction units are available as a cost-effective alternative: $400+ for unit; add $125+ for reproduction filter; $30 for decals; plus shipping costs. Net investment around $555+. Compare that to an original 440 base advertised at $549, $300 or more for an original Fram CA332V (not vintage series or reproduction), original lid ($) and decals - along with time to restore, and the costs are much more.

This assembly is correct for the following 1969-70 high performance models featuring the 440 (RB deck) 4 barrel engines:
Coronet R/T (69-70)
This assembly will fit a myriad of A/B/C bodies without the Air Grabber/Ram Charger fresh air systems. Please inquire if you are unsure of fitment options.
Note: the base is specific to the RB deck engines (413/426/440) due to the height of the carburetor flange. It will fit 340 LA & 383/400 B deck engines, but due to the difference in height at the flange (sits too low), will not correctly seal to the Air Grabber fresh air box.
The assembly will fit factory Carter AVS 4 barrel carburetors with a 5 1/8" diameter flange and others to include Holley, Carter, and Edelbrock variations without electric choke (some adjustment to the tangs may be necessary). If you have modified your carburetor or intake manifold, please inquire first prior to bidding to ensure fitment is correct. Return requests for non-fitment will not be honored.
