68 OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS 4-4-2 AIR CLEANER CUTLASS HOLIDAY 400 455
OEM 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 400 Oval Air Cleaner. The assembly has been refinished in gloss red/orange to present a period correct image. The single snorkel with oval end (as opposed to smaller unit for 350 cars) is in good condition and features a fully functional ThermAC pre-heater along with new white striped vacuum lines (without factory overspray). The base is very clean and comes with a correct 1968 air temperature sensor (ATS) installed with the correct retainer. The exterior features a GM licensed reproduction Air Cleaner Service Decal (OG=68) that replaces the originally located silk screen. As a nice touch of authenticity, an original date stamp has been recreated. This assembly is specific to 1968 cars due to the location of the filter breather outlet, snorkel size/orientation, and pre-heater inlet location on the bottom of the snorkel.
An OEM lid enhances the assembly and features an original seal. To complete the package, a new heavy duty air filter , along with a new breather filter and period correct wing nut are included. To add further distinction, a new 4-4-2 decal has been installed (note there are minor wrinkles/bubbles that will fade away after a few heat cycles) to complement the assembly.
As an added value, the assembly comes with an original pie pan retainer insert - making the assembly more complete.
