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.

Thanks again. I'll have to check on the Vette forum. Did the ink stamps have any codes on them to tell a date?

Wouldn't the Vette that early have a Carter carb on it?
Yes the Vette did have that type of carb but the cleaner was similiar but different (as I recall it was the base that was different). Many years ago I had such a Vette and purchased a '65 GTO cleaner only to be burned at a several NCRS shows. Paid good bucks for that cleaner but finally had to sell it to a GTO owner to get some of my money back. Of course now I don't have that Vette but a single four '66 GTO that came with a K&N filter. Go figure.:willy:
