My L48 SS X11 has the chrome lid
I was thinking there was a difference between the X55 and the X11, but Gus confirmed that both had the chrome lid

Hi again guys.
I forced a friend to look for aircleaners at Pomona recently.
What do you think, does it look like it is a correct aircleaner for L48?
I think it looks to be right, just repaint and rechrome the lid, then it will be good.

Hey Gus, These pics are hard to see any type of detail. The pics posted by the other members are nice and sharp and one could get a better view to help answer your questions with a certain degree of correctness. These pics are a bit far away and dark. Sorry I can't give you a more positive answer.

GUS,

Just to state the obvious...that is an automatic air cleaner.  My 69 L48/SS 4sp also has a chrome lid.

Thanks Guys,

69houdini:
Sorry for the quality on the pics.
What details are you interested in, to determine if it is right?
Or was it only small and dark pics?
If so, I will take better new pics as soon as possible.

MRPENNYPKR:
So you claim, that normally is the black lid on automatic and the chromed lid on 4-speed/manual cars?
Or is it other differences, too?
My plan is, if not, just to rechrome this black lid.

If you click on each photo, it'll take you to Photobucket with a much larger image, then click on "full size" at the upper left of the photo and you'll get them much larger. The images in the post are just thumbnails to get you to Photobucket. Smiley

Hey Gus, Pics are good I followed John's advice. This looks to me to be correct. There is no difference between the air cleaner whether or not it is for an automatic or a stickshift the chrome option was available for both. I think you're on the right track.

Just a little clarification.  The air cleaner is an automatic since it has a valve in the snorkel.  Manual trans does not have the pre-heating tube from the exhaust manifold to the snorkel.  I believe all '69 L48/SS models (with standard hood) have the crome lid.

Hi Gus and Mrpennypkr,

               As Kurt also reported the chrome option was only the air cleaner lid. PERIOD. Not every L48/SS w/SS hood whether it is an automatic or a stick shift came with a chrome optioned lid. Key word here is OPTION. I was only referring to the chrome option package that was an option, just to be clear not every SS chose that Chrome Lid Option there are many black lidded SS L48 air cleaner lids out there.

What the ...
I thought I had solved this.
The problem with the lid is perfectly clear, but
I have not yet seen a picture of a aircleaner from a 4speed car, all images have been with the valve.

MRPENNYPKR, can you post a picture from your car?
Is it totally clear that the valve on the snorkel is the only difference between 4speed and auto?

Gus,

I can't believe that I don't have a picture of my air cleaner. 
My car is in the process of a frame off restoration (I just put the Instrument panel in yesterday).  I have not done anything to the air cleaner yet. 

I'll take a picture tomorrow and post it.

Thanks Tony.

Then you and I have pretty much the same status of our restoration, but I have limited myself to only the frontend.
Otherwise, it will take too long.
Then, after that, I will decide what to do with rest of the car.

I'll be grateful if you take any pictures of your cleaner, but also on your valve covers, if they are original steel covers.

Thanks

Gus,  Here are the valve covers before restoration.  They are original.  Also, my air cleaner.  Note that there is no valve (therefore manual transmission).  I believe that this is an original SS L48 Manual transmission air cleaner.  It came with my car, however I was not the first owner.  I have the original dealer buyers order (the list of options and prices when the Camaor was ordered for the customer by the dealer.)  It lists the SS option but no other chrome or "style" options. 

I hope the pics look ok...my first post.  If you want any more or better pics, email me at the address on my profile I will be happy to send more.

Tony
