1971 PONTIAC FIREBIRD FORMULA 455 HO DUAL SNORKEL AIR CLEANER
1971Pontiac Firebird Formula 455 HO Dual Snorkel Air Cleaner - non Ram Air. The assembly has been refinished in semi-gloss black to present a period correct image. The base features the dual oval snorkels with ThermAC vacuum pods in fully functional condition featuring typical factory stamping waves in both the tops and snorkel edges. The base is exclusive to 1971 F-bodies due to the deep drop carburetor flange that matches the slope of the hood. It comes complete with the correct AC scripted ATS, retainer, and new white-striped vacuum lines, along with a reproduced date code. The exterior features a reproduction air cleaner service decal. The base features the correct drop required for proper hood clearance specific to the A-body cars.
An original black lid installs on top of the heavy duty air filter and enhances the assembly. To complete the package, a period correct wing nut and a new filter breather replete with GM stamped adapter are included. The lid is garnished with the all important 455 HO decal.
Note this assembly is specific to the 71 455 HO units without Ram Air, as it features the dual pre-heater provisions from both snorkels.
This assembly presents well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a very rare GM part!
