68 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE NOVA MALIBU SS 396 AIR CLEANER 325 HP AUTO W/CHROME
OEM 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle/Impala SS/Nova/El Camino/Malibu SS 396 325HP (L35) Closed Element Air Cleaner. The assembly has been refinished to present a period correct image. The single snorkel with oval end is in very good condition and features a fully functional ThermAC pre-heater along with new white striped 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 (1968). Note that the snorkel is canted downward (slightly) and is angled towards the passenger side fender as designed in 68 (1969 models pointed towards the battery tray and relocated the filter breather to the passenger side valve cover); it also features the factory installed pre-heater inlet on the bottom of the snorkel - designed for automatic transmission models. A reproduced date stamp has been added as a further measure of authenticity.
A new reproduction chrome lid enhances the appearance and includes a new seal to ensure correct sealing. To complete the package, a new heavy duty air filter, new ACDelco breather filter, and period correct chrome 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 is in very nice condition and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a genuine GM part!
