1968 CHEVROLET CAMARO CHEVELLE NOVA MALIBU SS 396 AIR CLEANER 325 HP AUTO
OEM 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle/Camaro/Nova/El Camino/Malibu SS 396 325HP (L35) Closed Element Air Cleaner. The assembly has been media blasted and refinished in low-gloss black finish to present a period correct image. The single snorkel with round end is in excellent condition and features a fully functional ThermAC pre-heater along with new white striped and black vacuum lines. The base is clean and retains the correct air temperature sensor (ATS) installed with the correct GM retainer. The exterior features a GM licensed reproduction Air Cleaner Service Decal (CQ=1968). Note that the snorkel is canted downward and is angled towards the passenger side fender - specific to 68 models (1969 models pointed towards the battery tray and relocated the filter breather to the passenger side valve cover). A reproduced date stamp has been added as a further measure of authenticity.
An OEM lid enhances the classic appearance and includes an original seal to ensure correct sealing, as well as the correct 6 dimple wing nut well. To complete the package, a new heavy duty air filter, new breather filter, and period correct wing nut are included. To add further distinction, GM licensed 396 Cross Flags and Turbo-Jet 325HP decals (temporarily installed - permanent installation to be made by the buyer as required) are included and complement the overall assembly.
This assembly presents well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!
