Our all new, all steel, retro air cleaner is based on the style and dimensions of the 1951-56 Oldsmobile and Cadillac air cleaners. This exciting new product will look at home in any street rod, hot rod, or traditionally styled "period perfect" car. Measuring a whopping 18-1/4" wide, our air cleaner is no wimpy, scaled-down version of this classic design. This new air cleaner has the same external dimensions as the original Oldsmobile oil-bath part. However, our version uses an off-the-shelf 14 inch diameter by 4 inch tall paper filter element. No fiberglass construction here, steel is real! Our air cleaner top is stamped from heavy gauge steel, fully spot welded together and then powder coated in a tough semi-gloss finish. The electroplated air cleaner base is also stamped steel and is designed to fit most carburetors and throttle bodies. The air cleaner is notched at the rear to provide clearance for the large diameter, GM, HEI distributors. Not content with anything "normal," we designed and produced a unique wing nut to complement the air cleaner. This chrome plated, rocket shaped nut was modeled after 50s era space vehicles and measures nearly 1- 1/8 inches tall. Our retro air cleaner assembly ships as a complete, ready-to-install kit. For about half the cost of an original, dented and rusted "swap meet find," hot rodders can enjoy the good looks of the Cadillac air cleaner. Avoid the hassle of restoration and the difficult conversion from oil bath to paper filter element with our thoughtful design. Part Number 8500: Retro Styled Air Cleaner Assembly. 1951-56 Oldsmobile / Cadillac style air cleaner to fit most carburetors and throttle bodies, semi-gloss powder coat finish. Includes stamped steel air cleaner top, stamped steel air cleaner base, 4 inch x 14 inch paper air filter, "Rocket" wing nut, carburetor stud, and AC decal.
