Also this one says it will but the picture only has one stud/nut in the middle and as im sure you all know, our carbs have two or four studs - one on each corner of the carb.

 If its just showing a stock photo it might be fine. Otherwise.. who knows? I tried to email the seller and eBay said the seller was unavailable to answer my questions. I'm actually running my cars without air cleaners right now because the stock filter and air cleaner assembly chokes the airflow down quite a bit. These filters shown above are open all the way around and should give good air filtration with good air flow.

I went to NAPA yesterday and asked if they could find me one, and he located a few at Eldebrock, 50 bucks. it will take 5 to 7 days shipping to get it. Good luck.
  I do what the voices in my Pinto tell me to do
