    I'm trying to decide what to put on mine. Two Carter 4-bbls on top of a 6-71 supercharger. Would you guys run scoops or small round air filters?

    The scoops are mine, the car belongs to my dad. I offered to let him use them but he likes his stacks better. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Not to hi-jack.... Any air restriction running the small filters such as below on a V-8?

    If you are a gear head, everything you see gets run through the "where can I use that" filter.

    The three scoops resting on my tri-power TV are old Chris Craft pieces, cast brass and nickle plated.

    The pair are also old wooden boat parts. Not as heavy and not sure on the brand. I can see a pair of these on a Track T with an open sided hood and two dueces on a flathead.

    Someday I'll find a use for them.

    I took 31Modelo out today to a few of my parts stash spots (read old boat junkyards!). What would you know he comes around the corner with a dorade vent! would make a killer scoop . Tons of stuff ready for the adaptation of feeble minds. Those ones up a few posts with the Chris Craft stuff I believe are Perko and may still be made new.

    Not vintage but fabricated. A buddy and I just finished this up yesterday. The center is from a used Holley air cleaner. The end plates we made from 1/4" 6061 and some motorcycle velocity stacks.

    I was told that these cast aluminum scoops were made in the 50's for a boat builder on the Washington coast.
    They will be on my 29 AV8 flathead.

    Thanks Kiwi Kev. I picked this up at the Turkey Run for 15 bucks. I knew it was old but I never researched it until I saw it in your scans. The oldest I can find it is 1961 which is about perfect for my project. It seems strange to have an air cleaner with such a large hole in it.:D

    Here's mine. For a 60's Paxton set-up. It's actually kinda goofy and huge, but I'm gonna use it with the rest of the system.

    Here is what is on the car now. I have some other more common 2x4 air cleaners and some 2bbl stuff. But these are by far my favorites. I just wish the flowed a little more air and let the motor breath better. Plus they are for the small throat AFBs, would need and adapter to put onthe later AFBs or Edelbrocks.
