Hi,
Is there anyone who knows, what kind of AirCleaner and Valve Covers, it should be in my -69 Camaro Conv. SS350/300hp - L48?
It's for a normal SS-hood, not Cowl-hood.
How does the Air Cleaner looks like?
And how is the ValveCovers, painted or chromed?

I have posted this in ChevyTalk-forum, but with no answer Huh.
Hopefully there is someone out there who knows.

Thanks,

I have a completely stock untouched 1969 X55 convertible SS 350/300 HP L48 SS hood and it has the stock valve covers painted chevy orange and the air cleaner is a single snorkel angled to the left and it has a heat riser attached also. My air cleaner has a chrome top with a 350/300 HP sticker on it and my valve cover on the left has a tonawanda sticker on it because it was built back in New York and the motor # starts with a T .  Hope this helps.-John

Hi and thanks for quick reply.

My car is exactly the same model as yours, x55 and a T at the beginning of the number, Dusk Blue with white top.

I was pretty sure that it would be as you describe, but some argued that it would be all chromed details.

Do you know where I can get this, new, aftermarket or original?
And you can please, send a couple of pictures of each part, it will make the job easier?

Thanks again

Thanks again.

One more question about this,
do you know what Bright Engine Chrome means?
It is mentioned in the RPO Z27 SS package.

Then what is this for? The h. riser in my pic has a different orientation and size. Although the decal reads 427 that means nothing to me.

I don't know - someone who's more familiar with the L48 than I am will have to answer that; I found those photos over on Team Camaro some time ago.

Are you sure you do not want to sell it to me, Redge Roll Eyes?

That's the correct air cleaner. That's the Bright Engine Chrome - the lid.

There was no "bright accent option". No such RPO. Smiley

Thanks KurtS.

It was what I suspected, with or without chromed lid.
Do you know where to find one?
