Re: Measurement needed - 1965 El Camino/Chevelle
FWIW, In my 65 Elky,I have a BBC on Energy Suspension "low and wide" mounts, stock frame mounts, with a sq. port Airgap and holley carb. With a 3" by 14" drop base air cleaner there is about 1/2" of clearance between the hood and the air cleaner bolt and wing nut. This is the second BBC in the car and both had the same clearance with either a GM "163" intake or the Airgap.
OLDED - It's STOCK if it's made by GM and it fits!
