1971 AMC JAVELIN AMX 401 DUAL SNORKEL AIR CLEANER
Ultra rare 1971 AMC Javelin AMX Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner. This assembly has been refinished to represent the factory appearance as produced for the late 71 models. It features the rare dual snorkels specific to 1971 with no pre-heater provisions. The base is in very good condition and has a single drain hole in the rear - allowing it to be used as either a closed element or Cowl Induction base, as well as the front breather tube. The flange is 5 1/8" inch and accomodates factory 4 barrel carburetors (Autolite 4300 models) as well as modern iterations of Edelbrock AFB and select Holley carburetors. The base is finished off with a reproduction AMC licensed 401 Four Barrel High Compression air cleaner decal and correct air cleaner service decal. While the assembly is not perfect, it is a nice piece.
The original lid is in good condtion as well and features an original seal. The assembly is completed with a period correct wing nut.
This assembly was available for a limited time during the late 71 production run, as Federal emissions and drive-by noise reverted the performance air cleaners to a single snorkel with pre-heating requirements. It will work with the Cowl Induction fresh air systems designed for the AMX/Javelin Go-Pak optioned cars. Note that the last pictures reflects an actual survivor featuring the closed element dual snorkel air cleaner as installed on the 401 cars.
This is a unique assembly that is both very rare and highly coveted by AMC enthusiasts.
