I have a couple chrome ones but they have rust spots. You may have to send a good painted one to California Corvairs to have them Chrome one for you. Call Jeff and see what he can do for you.


edit: I bought my cover from him when he had a stock available.

I asked that very question to the Professor himself (lclc) Larry Claypool, at the convention this year...and he was fairly certain that all 140's, no matter the car trim level, came with chrome lid.

All the 140's I have seen have had them. I have also seen quite a few 67-69 95 and 110 engines with painted chrome lids where the factory must have run out of the bare steel ones. These are a treat as the chrome is typically perfect from the paint preserving it.

I'm working on a Corsa with a black one and would like to suggest the owner get a chrome one. Since the paper filter element is common to other GM, I was wondering if other GM used the same top cover on the housing which would make them a lot more common. I suppose this would have come up before it was the case but I was just wondering...

I have the 64 thru 80 Chevy parts catalog, which covers all Chevy cars except Corvairs. It shows numerous air cleaners with styles with covers similar to the Corvairs. Someone would have to find a recycle yard which still has old engines that has the cleaners to see if they match up. Or use the part number to see if they could google up the dimensions of each cover.

I can place all the number and illustrations in a file and send to somebody who has time to look further into it.

Me, I have A Camaro and Greenbrier to get back to now.

Most standard Chevy air cleaner covers that I have seen are 14" diam. while a Corvair cover is 13". You can find aftermarket 9". 10", but I haven't seen any others in the 13" diam. range.
Anyone ever have a standard one chrome plated? If so, any idea of what the cost was?

I've seen a few original non Corsa 140's with painted lids. One was a '65 500 with a 140 and an oil bath air cleaner. I still have that set up and it was an unmolested car, parked since the early 70's.

The new 6 cyl Chevy's that came out in '62 used the same dia. element as the later Corvairs but the filter was shorter. It seems like I saw a Chevy 6 with a HD air cleaner that used the taller Corvair top. As for the element that was used by the V8 vans I believe into the 90's and by the 4.3 PU's until they went away from the throttle-body EFI somewhere in the 90's. The top cover changed at some point in that where the wing nut touches the cover. On the Corvair it has the upside down cone up to where it meets the stud but they changed it so that the top of the cone was formed down ward so the wingnut sets in a little well.
The covers will interchange other than the slight difference in the height of the stud. This change might have happened in order to get a little more clearance when using them in the vans.

Jeff at California Corvairs is looking for air cleaner covers. I have 5 I am shipping him on Tuesday. I will be getting 1 back for my own use. So there will be 4 available for others looking for one.

Monza67, I will ask that one be set aside for you since you were the first looking for one. If you PM me your full name I can do a better reserve for you.
