    I'm looking for a 14" Buick chrome air cleaner. I guess these where from the GM performance division. I have the 10" but would like the larger 14". Would look like this one but with Buick on it. Ty

    I have one on my 68. I bought it off of a board member. They turn up every now and then, but they go fast.

    There was one on the last car I sold. If I can find the guy's name (CA) I will see if he still has it or wants to sell it.
    Previous guy put a S1 sticker on it...it comes off. I will let you know if I can find him.

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Looks like a few of you have seen these sell, what is a fair price?

    Brian, I know one sold on here two years ago for $100 plus shipping. I think they where about $50 new before being discontinued. A couple more recently sold on here but I'm not sure what they sold for, they sold through pm's in parts wanted.
    If you have one and want to sell it please let me know. Thanks, Tom.

    I paid $150 off the board last year. Thought the price was high, but haven’t seen another come for sale since so I’m happy to have it. Just unwrapped it, so it’s no longer NOS.

    Thanks for posting Louie, I saw you bought one but didn't know what you paid. Looks really good, did you ever find your pro touring car?

    Hey Tom,

    Yes I did- shortly after I bought the air cleaner I was able to buy Tom Miller’s 70 Skylark. I wanted to buy the car in 2009, but was young and broke. The car has caused me to still be broke! I’m headed to Carlisle Friday. If I come across one, I’ll pick it up for you. You never know- I found my finned aluminum valve covers there. Good luck!

    Thanks for looking out for me. Louie that car is awesome, I had no idea and never thought to look in that section of the forum. Best of luck and I'll be paying attention to that thread. Craigs cowl hood would look killer on that car.

    I think that I paid $90 + shipping for mine about 4 or 5 years ago.

    Nice, what's with the two different valve covers, kept one side chrome to match air cleaner? :)
