The 1967 GT500 Air Cleaner

Note the "COBRA" lettering. The "O" is wider than it is tall & the "R" has a curved foot

Bottom side of lid has casting circles marks.

There is a rectangular casting impression around the Cobra lettering of an original air cleaner.

No Casting numbers are on the lids.

I have seen REPO Lids with the "O" equal width & height & the "R" foot straight

BUT, I have also seen REPO lids with the lettering as Original but showing a sand cast finish on underside.

 

The 1967 GT500 Base has a rip bottom and a PCV elbow.

Most Repo bases don't even have a PCV elbow or provisions for a PCV hookup.

Base has casting numbers "S7MS 9600 B" - And the PCV Elbow is an integrated part of base.

This is an Example of a REPRODUCTION Air Cleaner - Note the equal width & Height, letter "O" & Straight Foot  on letter "R".
