Anyone know if an original 2 bbl,aircleaner from a 55 is the same as a 57.
They are very different and I don't think the 55 air cleaner will even fit under the hood of a 57. The 55/56 air cleaners are taller than the 57 is. In 57 GM lowered the hood line on the 57 making it closer to the top of the engine. If you do try it be very sure to lower the hood slowly to check for proper clearance. :anim_25:
