1970-71 MONTE CARLO SS 396 454 OVAL SNORKEL AIR CLEANER LS5 LS3
OEM 1970-71 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 454 LS5 396/400 LS3 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 good condition, along with the ThermAC vacuum pod and inlet, new white-striped and black vacuum lines, a new heavy duty A348C Delco air filter and breather filter, and a recreated date stamp (early 1970). The exterior features a reproduced Air Cleaner Service Decal (CM=70); note that it has slight factory stamping waves around parts of the side. The interior is in excellent condition as well
The original OEM lid is a nice addition to the assembly and features an original seal. To complete the package, a set of GM licensed reproduction 454 Cross Flags and Turbo-Jet 360HP decals have been added (loosely installed) to represent the original appearance; other sets are available depending upon your application. The assembly is topped off with a period correct wing nut.
This assembly is in nice condition and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!
We have the specific big block breather tube available separately if required.

This assembly is correct for the following models:
Monte Carlo SS with LS5 454 360 HP or LS3 396/400 300 HP
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 both AC and non- A/C cars. 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.
