1979 Ford F100 Air cleaner housing

Anyone know where I could get a new aluminum air cleaner housing for my 1979 Ford F100? It does have emissions control on it, but its pretty dirty and I want to make it a bit prettier. anyone know of a way to fix it, or if not, to get a new one?

Well you could clean it if it's just dirty. Some cleaners will dull aluminum so if you get really clean put some clear on it to seal it. There are replacement decals available from some of our sponsors.

What part of the country are you in?
