I'm looking for a good/great condition chrome air cleaner for my 66' Corsa 140.
Anyone have one for sale? Contact me at vichoward@frontiernet.net

Air cleaner, or air cleaner lid?

I was just thinking about the lid but if all of the air cleaner is chrome, I would go for that too if the price is right

Another blast from the past!

My 1965 Concours Monza with 140, had the chrome air cleaner cover. At a show one time I was parked decklid up and with the rear of the car facing the sun....... the engine deck-lid insulation started smoking..."Really"! It turned out the sun was just in the right position to be reflected and concentrated on a small spot of the origional insulation!
I guess I should have bought a lotto ticket at that one in a million moment!

corvairventureDave is correct about the chrome lid possibly starting a fire.
Happened to someone we know and almost happened to me at a car show last year.
The sun hit the lid just at the right angle and was concentrated on the insulation, when a club member said it's starting to smoke. Be aware.

The chances of that happening, and it's happened to more than one of you on here. Corvair guys must be lucky!
