OEM 1977 78 79 Pontiac Trans Am 77 Can Am 403 L80 Oldsmobile Shaker Air Cleaner Assembly. This piece has been refinished in 60% gloss to present a period correct image. The round 4" snorkel is in good condition, feeding air through the functional ThermAC pre-heater, and into a clean base with air deflector. The air temperature sensor is mounted using the factory correct spring clip, routing reproduction yellow-striped vacuum hoses to the pre-heater and multi-port thermo sensor with correct clip. The base features the correct deep drop required for proper shaker hood clearance. One of the double vacuum line retainers is missing on the clip, but does not affect function or fit - the area has been lightly touched up. The exterior features the correct GM Licensed Air Cleaner Service Decal (PN=Olds 77-79) to add further authenticity. The assembly includes the Olds specific breather tube grommet installed on the side - still soft and supple. 

A reproduction aluminum shaker lid ensures air is correctly channeled to the carburetor. To complete the package, a period correct wing nut and new heavy duty air filter are included. 

This assembly presents well and will enhance your restoration. 

A  factory pre-heater elbow is available separately - add to your purchase and additional shipping will be refunded.

This assembly is correct for the following 1977 78 79 models:


Trans Am with 403 Olds engine

1977 Can Am with 403 Olds engine

This assembly cannot be used on Pontiac 301/400/455 or Chevrolet 305/350 engines due to the size (301) or offset of the base plate as related to the carburetor flange, as well as the height of the requisite shaker base plate adapter.

Note: this will NOT fit the L78 400 Pontiac engines due to the offset of the shaker scoop, as well as the difference in carburetor flange drop. 




The assembly will fit factory 4 barrel Quadrajet carburetors with a 5 1/8" diameter flange, as well as some Holley, Carter/Edelbrock variations without an electric choke (the alignment tangs have been altered). If you have modified your carburetor, distributor, or intake manifold, please inquire first prior to bidding to ensure fitment is correct. Return requests for non-fitment will not be honored.





The assembly will ship within one day (usually the day of payment) with shipping/tracking information provided.
