1970-71 CHEVROLET 454 LS5 MONTE CARLO SS OVAL SNORKEL AIR CLEANER
OEM 1970-71 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 454 LS5 Oval Snorkel Air Cleaner. This assembly has been refinished in 60% gloss black to present a period correct image. The base features the long oval snorkel in very good condition, along with the ThermAC vacuum pod, new white-striped vacuum lines, a new heavy duty air filter and breather filter, and a recreated date stamp (early 1970 models). The exterior features a reproduced Air Cleaner Service Decal (CN=70). The interior is in excellent condition as well. The oval snorkel retains a fully functional ThermAC vacuum pre-heater inlet - one light ding just behind it. The points rear clearance had been previously increased slightly -likely to accomodate an HEI distributor; while this does not influence fitment or performance, it is mentioned for clarity.
The original OEM lid is a nice addition to the assembly and features an original seal. To complete the package, a GM licensed reproduction 454 Cross Flags Decal and Turbo-Jet 360HP has been added (loosely installed) to represent the original appearance. The assembly is topped off with a period correct wing nut.
This assembly is in very nice condition and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!

This assembly is correct for the following models:
Monte Carlo SS with LS5 454/360
Note that this is the smaller 15 1/8" air cleaner diameter, but with the much larger snorkel as compared to small block 350 assemblies. It also differs from later production air cleaners by way of the smoothed/radiused carburetor inlet flange (later models feature prominent squared edges on the interior of the flange).
The assembly will fit factory 4 barrel Quadrajet carburetors with a 5 1/8" diameter flange, as well as most Holley (not double pumpers), Carter, and Edelbrock variations (some adjustment to the carburetor alignment tangs may be required). Fits non- A/C cars only. 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.
