1971-72 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE HEAVY CHEVY EL CAMINO LS3 400 402 AIR CLEANER
OEM 1971-72 Chevrolet Chevelle SS El Camino SS 396/400/402 LS3 Tapered Snorkel Air Cleaner. This assembly has been refinished in 60% gloss black to present a period correct image. The base features the long tapered snorkel in 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 1971 models). The exterior features a reproduced Air Cleaner Service Decal (CJ=71/early 72). 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 GM licensed reproduction 400/300 Horsepower Turbo-Jet decal has been installed to represent the original appearance. The assembly is topped off with a period correct wing nut.
Note: this assembly differs from all small block assembies by way of: a larger snorkel inlet (both oval insert at the end and wider snorkel at base), larger pre-heater inlet, and valve cover breather tube inlet.
This assembly is in nice condition and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!
