    This is the exact copy of the high performance air cleaner. This unit features a highly polished chrome top with a dimpled recess for the wing nut and all contours are concours correct. The filter element has the correct orange color and round hole design with the base plate painted in the correct Ford blue and also includes the breather tube. Decal and correct wing nut are optional. 

    Dimensions: 13 7/8" X 2 1/4" (edge height).

    Replaces Ford part # C5ZZ-9600.

    Poor packaging did not protect it.

    Pros:
    Cons:
    Some have claimed other styles of lids (double hump) are correct.
    Ford records dispute heresay.
    This should create a standard for your 427 GTE

    Not questioning the part , just the correct style.

    Cons:
    I think there is a different style lid that was used for the 427. A similar lid with a double hump, instead of the flat top is arguably claimed as being correct.

    Pros:
    Cons:
    I just bought this to replace a cheesy auto parts store type air cleaner that was on my 351C (which is sitting in a 69 XR7 convertible, installed by a PO). It was a lot cheaper and also nicer looking than getting a factory correct air cleaner with all the necessary plumbing (which, again, was missing). I appreciated the included 427 sticker, but didn't use it, as my car in no way is claiming to be 427 equipped. I do wish, however, that instead of the sticker, they included a nice chrome wing nut.
