The base features the 77 W72 specific OR 78-79 L78 snorkel in good condition with the correct 4" round opening, new yellow striped and black vacuum lines, and a new heavy duty air filter. The exterior features a new Air Cleaner Service Decal (RD=77).

To complete the package, a period correct wing nut and a new filter breather with GM stamped adapter are included.
