Need info on oil bath air cleaner for early engines

Cleaning the attic of my garage and found an early oil bath air cleaner, with the flat tube that runs to the carbs. Would this be factory for a 61 MONZA with 98 hp and 4 speed? If I decide not to use it, is anyone interested?

I found some info that oil bath was used on 63-64 cars.

I have a 64 110hp that has the central round oil bath air cleaner. The flat tube runs to two paper air filters that go out to the twin carbs.

If the flat tube portion has a clip for the PCV valve that would indicate a '63 or '64. No clip it would be '61 or '62.

True. My 64 has the PCV clip.

Someone just pointed out that my 64 has a 61 emblem on the front. Then I noticed there was no CORVAIR letters on the hood, either. The 61 is actually classier, so I'm not bothered, but I guess I'll never get 100 points at a concours inspection. ;-)

I'm thinking it got lost in the repainting process. There's not body damage at all.

My later production 1964 Monza had the factory oil bath filter that is mounted in the Left rear corner of the engine compartment, much like the 1965 and later units.
I believe there was a change in the production year or at one of the assembly locations. The filter mounting bracket is different than the 65 style oil bath canister mount.

My 1962 air-conditioned Monza convertible has a PCV Valve on it.
