Scored an Edelbrock Performer intake, carb and Air Cleaner set up to go along with the 65 289 Also got a bunch of old slotted Mags, a C4 tranny, old air cleaner for the Mustang with the 289 decal on it, missing snorkel, a vintage Cadillac ram air air cleaner housing ,a engine stand. $110.00 How's I do Boys? Oh I forgot to mention The guy I got the trucks and parts from wants me to haul away two Studebaker pickups and also go get a 63 Studebaker car he has at another friends place,maybe even a couple other vehicles
What does the Cadillac so-called "ram air cleaner" look like? Is it sorta round with a duct on either side?
If so, this is the standard 4V air cleaner used on 1952/58 Cadillacs/Oldsmobiles, 1953/58 'nail head' Buicks, 1955/56 Nashes/Hudsons/Packards.
This air cleaner is very hard to find today and in big demand by hot rodders, customizers and etc. It'll fetch more bucks than you paid for the whole tamale.
Take a large magnet along when you get that 1962 Studebaker, cuz you may need it. These are the only cars I'm aware of that can rust out in Death Valley!
The piles have no inner fender splash shields, have a fresh air vent in each fender. Mud and etc gets thrown behind the vents, has no outlet...the fenders begin to rust, then the rocker panels and the cowl panel.
If it's an OHV I-6, this engine was junk from day one. Studebaker took the old Champion 170 cid flathead six used from 1939 to 1960, stuck an OHV head on it. The head can crack in a NY minute.
