Air filter box


Recommended Posts

Hi, It should be this type, and I think the color is the only thing that is different from the early and later types, according to realoem anyway.

Exactly, the first RealOEM listing is for the one-barrel carbs; the second is for the two-barrel carbs. The offer in Posting #2 might be for a two-barrel. All U.S. cars were switched to the two-barrel carbs much earlier than the European models, which may have only used two-barrel carbs on automatic transmission models. The early date of this switchover, '71-ish, means that two-barrel air boxes are much more common here.

Steve
