Ultra rare OEM 1971 AMC Javelin AMX Cowl Induction Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner. This assembly has been refinished to represent the factory appearance as produced for the 71 models. It features the rare dual snorkels specific to 1971 with no pre-heater provisions. The base is in excellent condition and has a single drain hole in the rear - correct for Cowl Induction, 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 base is finished off with a reproduction AMC licensed 401 Four Barrel air cleaner decal and correct air cleaner service decal. 

The original fresh air lid is in good condition as well. It retains the factory notches in the wing nut well and is completed with a period correct wing nut.

As an added value, an NOS high performance perforated AMC air filter is included - along with the PN 8992873 partial box for reference purposes.

The Ram Air Cowl Induction topper (mid plate) is in excellent condition. It is complete with a fully functional trap door, vacuum pod, and new white-striped vacuum line. The original seal is exceptional too - these are nearly impossible to find in any condition, let alone in this condition. The assembly has been complemented with "AMC/Made In Canada" stamps as a nice touch of authenticity.

This assembly was available for a limited time during the 1971 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 system hoods designed for the AMX/Javelin Go-Pak optioned cars. Note that the reference picture reflects this assembly with dual snorkels as installed on a 401 car.

This is a unique assembly that is both very rare and highly coveted by AMC enthusiasts. Best of all, it is a genuine AMC part!

Many of our items are very difficult to find and may never be able to be available again. As such, the adage "here today, gone tomorrow" applies. While we strive to maintain a high level of inventory, some items are simply not available.
