...their car came equipped with a snorkel fitting, I

don't think its a big deal at all.

They ran "fast & loose" those days with respect

to their parts inventories. So, I do believe

that there were tii equipped w/ snorkels and in no way does that indicate unoriginality or a front-nose replacement.

....but when a person has had a stock tii from day #1 off the showroom floor and says....."Yes, a snorkle fitting was there".....that's pretty hard to refute.

In my opinion, yes......some tii's came with snorkle fittings. Everyone is free to believe what they want and place a corresponding monetary evaluation on the car of interest.

Seemingly a snorkle fitting isn't hurting the Ebay value of a tii.

Best,

Jerry

just to the right of the top of the radiator. It is there for carureted cars' air cleaners to attach to to get cooler air from forward of the front firewall. As I understand it, tii cars didn't have them - they gather air from the other side of the engine bay. To have a "tii" with one means one of two things:

A - It's not a genuine tii - Check the VIN.

B - It's a tii, but it's had the nose replaced with the wrong part. This could be bad.
