I've never seen one like this that I can remember but I'm not up on '60 stuff.

Baffles were different when there was a passive road draft system instead of the much higher flow pcv system.

The top cover for the road draft tubes used a flat paper gasket instead of an o-ring where the tube inters the cover. Since it used a gasket the hole was not beveled for the o-ring.

That was used up through 1962 when the road draft was changed to a PCV as Craig mentioned. Then there were the paper thin baffles that will crack very easily. I don't know when those were stopped but it is, not rare but often enough I run across one of those.

The early flat gasket was changed because it leaked, even with the road draft.
