AMC 1969 390 AIR CLEANER HURST SC/RAMBLER REBEL MACHINE RAM AIR
OEM 1969 AMC 390 Hurst SC/RAMBLER Rebel Machine Ram Air Air Cleaner. This assembly has been refinished to represent the factory appearance as produced for the limited 69 models. It features the correct snorkel inlet housing with a thermally regulated temperature valve and pre-heater provisions. The base is in very good condition and has the front oil breather elbow tube. The flange is 4 1/8" inch and accommodates factory 4 barrel Carter AFB carburetors. An "AM" / Made in Canada" stamps have been added as a nice touch of authenticity.
The assembly features a reproduction Ram Air "tub" that fits inside the base and retains the factory snorkel opening. It is topped with a new foam seal that secures the unit to the hood to ensure fresh air is used in lieu of heated engine air. The exterior carries the 69 blue version air cleaner service decal featuring the "Front" call out.
The Ram Air lid is in good condition as well. It retains the AMC contours and sits atop a vintage heavy duty air filter. It is secured with a period correct AMC air cleaner wing nut and comes with a new carburetor mounting stud.
With so few of these left due to early owners discarding them in favor of open element air filter assemblies, they have become increasingly difficult to find (in any condition). This assembly is complete and reflects the original period, allowing an incomplete restoration to get that much closer to the original state.
This is a unique item to our store inventory-many items are only available once. As such, the saying "Here today, gone tomorrow" is applicable.
This assembly presents well and will enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a rare and genuine AMC part.
