Air Cleaner ID

Hey Guys

Inherited this a while back. It does have a GM ink stamp on the base. Is this for a GTO?

Thanks in advance

Jeff

Looks like it could be. I've seen that style air cleaner used on both GTOs and Corvettes.

I'm thinking it's around 1965, maybe 66 on the GTO's.

Agreed with others...65-66 GTO 4bbl pancake style air cleaner cover. And yes, it was compatible with the Corvette...60-61, possibly the late 50's models also but I can't say for sure.

Walt, I agree on the years of use. I was once TOLD that some were chromed and sone were polished stainless steel. I don't know if this is true or not. Nice piece of equipment either way! 67 also. Eric

Vette single four carb air cleaners looked similar but are not the same for any year. If you have one they are worth a good bit more than the Pontiac units.

They were all chrome, the Vette as well as GTO. The '65-'66 GTO's had the small base hole like FNG69 stated. This was for the Carter AFB carb. The '67 units used the same exact chrome top, but had a larger diameter hole in the bottom plate for the Q-jet. The top piece in '65, '66, and '67 is the same unit for the 335 HP cars. To me, it looks like '65-'66 GTO is what you have pictured here.
