Folks,

I'm looking to detail the air cleaner housing on my 66 Coronet with the Slant Six. It is the standard "no snorkel" pot sitting on the Holley 1920 on barrel.

What type of black paint, semi-gloss or gloss? It looks to be semi-gloss. Any particular paint brand to look for?

What decals?

The worn decal I took off the side has "MOPAR AIR CLEANER PART NO. 2402704" on top above the "DO NOT WASH OR OIL". I have a repro side decal with "MOPAR" on top and "DO NOT WASH OR OIL" under that. it's not the same exactly. Also, I need to get the "CHARGER 225" decal for the side.

Were there any more? I have one on the top that is long rectangular but I can't read it at all - it is destroyed.

Can you folks help me get the air cleaner right? Thanks much!

Jon

Those air cleaners were glossy or satin black, depending on when and where any particular air cleaner was made. Yours appears to be glossy.

You're right that the repro yellow and black decal you have isn't correct. The all-the-way-correct air cleaner decal is available from Jim Osborn, tel (770) 962-7556, Tues-Fri 7:30A-4:30P, and/or JimOsbornOrders@gmail.com . They're not just a reseller; they have a ton of decals absolutely unavailable elsewhere. Their website hasn't worked in forever, and they never did get round to putting up an online cattledog; you'll have to ask them to send you one.

"Charger 225" is correct—on a chromelike background, not white.

Those are the only two decals that would have been present; whatever that one is on top of the lid, doesn't belong.

Dan,

I knew I could count on you! Now I'm set to fix her right up. Thanks for the lead on the red/yellow sticker. I'd really like to have the right one if I can.

I sent a query to Jim Osborn at the email address. I also noted his name referenced in my Classic Industries catalog in the Emblems & Decals section.

Ugh, Classic Industries. Stay far away.
