1967 SS Camaro Closed Air System Air Cleaner
« on: July 11, 2013, 04:38:15 PM »
Hello everyone- I am trying to determine if the air cleaner base came semi black or gloss black from the factory.  The only thing I can find on the net is a 67 Z28 Air cleaner should be gloss black.  Is it the same for SS?


Thank you for your time.

Jerry

 I assume you are talking about the open element SS cleaners.
Both my 67 L35's have what looks like more than a semi-gloss  (but not a full gloss) base with matching black tops.

Yes.  My apologies.  I have a L48 with the AIR system.

Thanks,

Jerry

Here is a picture of my engine bay.  The air cleaner has a lot of dents in teh horn.  I want to get it fixed and repainted.

The 67 L48 used a closed air cleaner, not the open one, but to answer your question, yes, it should be semi-gloss (approx 60 percent gloss).
