air cleaner for 4b 72

636 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  fatrat720
Why can't I find a stock style air cleaner for a 72 4brl that is not cowl induction? All of the snorkles I have seen are cowl/i type.

Anybody have any pics of a stock 72 setup?

I'm not sure what you are after. I own a 1972 Chevelle with 4bbl, and the snorkle on my 454 air cleaner is no different than one on a 350.
If you are going for correctness, the air cleaners in all the catalogs are not correct for cowel induction or other 1972 Chevelles!!
They do not have the correct thermac valve built into the snorkle part of the air cleaner. If you are trying for correctness purchase yourself a Chevelle restoration guide like Motorbooks International "Chevelle SS Restoration Guide by Paul Herd, or some other noted restoration guru.
