1971-74 AMC Javelin SST AMX 401 Air Cleaner Assembly
OEM 1971-74 AMC Javelin AMX Air Cleaner. This assembly has been refinished to represent the factory appearance as produced for the late 71-74 models. It features the later introduction of the thermal air inlet to late 1971 with the new pre-heater provisions. The base is in good condition, as well as the front breather tube. The flange is 5 1/8" inch and accommodates factory 4 barrel carburetors (Autolite 4300 models) as well as modern iterations of Edelbrock AFB and select Holley carburetors. The interior features the correct air temperature sensor (ATS) retained by new factory push nuts and comes with new vacuum lines to connect to both the snorkel and carburetor vacuum inlet. It is finished off with a reproduction AMC licensed 401 Four Barrel High Compression air cleaner decal and correct green air cleaner service decal. A "Made in Canada" stamp has been added as a nice touch of authenticity.
The original lid is in good condition (minor rim anomalies) as well and features an original seal. The assembly is completed with a period correct wing nut and new heavy duty air filter.
This assembly was available starting late 71, as Federal emissions and drive-by noise reverted the performance air cleaners to a this single snorkel with pre-heating requirements. It will work with the Cowl Induction fresh air systems (simply add a rear drain hole) designed for the AMX/Javelin Go-Pak optioned cars.
The assembly presents well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine AMC product.
