Default Wanted: Free 2x4 Batwing Air Cleaner

Mainly cause I can't afford $2500 for one of the originals. :eek:

What I'd really like is any information as to where a set of aftermarket air cleaners could be found?

Any I see on ebay are listed as fitting a 5 1/8 inch carb opening. As far as I can tell, the 2x4 carbs I own have like a 4 1/2 inch opening. Unless I feel like making my own custom lower air cleaner lids, these won't work.

Any suggestions on air cleaner(s) that will fit an original '57 2x4 set up would be appreciated.

Sorry that I can't help you find an air cleaner.

Doesn't anybody already make an adapter plate?

Here is one to follow perhaps it won't reach $2500.

Cadillac had one, but they don't fit the Chevy's or so I heard. I saw one last year that went pretty reasonable.

Richard, I got a pair a long time ago. Just plain old Mr. Gasket, I think. The WCFB does have a smaller neck, and these had plastic adaptors to fit them. However, I had a backfire that melted them! My boss at the time was a welder and he made me some new adaptors out of aluminum, still on the job today. Look at the pics in the link in my sig under 'El Camino' and you'll see them.
