That air cleaner is pictured here. There was a shield spot-welded to the base plate extending vertically and outward to guard about a 150° section of the air cleaner from road splash propelled rearward by the radiator fan. The rest of the element had no guard or cover.

This air cleaner is loud and not as good-flowing as other designs.

I'm confuzzed...the '62-type air cleaner you asked for fits a 1-barrel carburetor only. The air cleaner you linked fits a 4-barrel carburetor only. What're you running for a carb?

Ahhh the fella who asked for the 62 type air cleaner is someone else..
I tried to hijack the thread to pick your brain about air cleaner styles.
