1977-79 PONTIAC TRANS AM BANDIT SHAKER AIR CLEANER SNORKEL W-72 L78
OEM 1977-79 Pontiac Trans Am Pontiac W72 L78 400 Shaker Air Cleaner. The assembly has media blasted and refinished in semi-gloss black to present a period correct image. The base features the 4" round snorkel in good condition, original yellow-striped and black vacuum lines, and a new heavy duty air filter. Also includes an original ATS with correct clip, EVE valve and retainer, and new filter breather and clip. The exterior features a new GM Air Cleaner Service Decal (RD=77). The base features the correct deep drop required for proper shaker hood clearance, as well as the angled flange that parallels the base level with the sloped hood line. The interior has been stamped with an original date code for further authenticity.
The original shaker lid is in very good condition as well. To complete the package, a period correct wing nut is included.
As an added value, the assembly comes with a Trans Am specific pre-heater elbow, Wittek tower clamp, and new black aluminized pre-heater tube to make installation more complete.
This assembly is in very good condition. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!

This assembly is correct for the following 1977-79 models:
Trans Am with 400 Pontiac engine
Note: 77 W72 featured this type of assembly, while the L78's received this in 78 & 79.
Note: this will NOT fit the L80 403 Olds engines or Pontiac 301/Chevrolet 350 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 Holley (it will NOT fit double pumpers; i.e. models 4150/4160), Carter/Edelbrock variations without an electric choke (some adjustment to the carburetor alignment tangs may be required). If you have modified your carburetor or intake manifold, please inquire first prior to bidding to ensure fitment is correct. Return requests for non-fitment will not be honored.
