1970 Chevrolet 454 LS6 396 L78 Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner Chevelle Camaro Nova SS
1970 Chevrolet Camaro SS Chevelle SS Nova SS 396/454 Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner. This is a reproduction assembly that has been refinished in the correct semi-gloss black finish to present a period correct image. The base features dual snorkels with the updated and correct snorkel ends with rolled edges (the repro snorkels are simply stamped flat with a small insert) that are in excellent condition along with a new heavy duty air filter and a recreated date stamp. The exterior features a reproduced Air Cleaner Service Decal (CO= 70 HP). The original style flame arrestor tube comes complete with a GM stamped flame arrestor screen (not perfect, but representative) and a new GM stamped adapter hose with elbow replete with new grommet. A later year date stamp (March 12, 1970) has been added as a nice touch of originality to parallel the close release time of these assemblies.
The beautiful triple chrome-plated reproduction lid is an excellent addition to the assembly and features a new seal to ensure correct sealing. To complete the package, a GM licensed Turbo-Jet 396/375 Horsepower decal or a 454/450 - depending upon your application, and a period correct chrome wing nut are included.
Due to the rarity of these OEM assemblies, originals go for well over $3,500. The current crop of reproductions are close, but nowhere near the original appearance in the snorkel ends, weld marks on the snorkels, and final finish. We have taken the time to update the assembly to reflect the OEM standards as closely as possible, but at a fraction of the price of an original.
The dual snorkel air cleaner is specific to original cars without cowl induction or air conditioning.
This assembly is in excellent condition and will enhance your restoration.
