    Description

    Reproduction Group II "Walking Cat" oval air cleaner for your Mercury Cougar. Good quality reproduction that will go nicely with our Cougar aluminum valve covers. The finish on the black portion is not the same as the crinkle finish on the valve covers but do know the crinkle finish can be added with an aerosol product found from most paint suppliers. If you are using a vented oil filler cap you will need to drill a hole in the base to insert the rubber vent hose.

    This is a must have if you are using a pair of our finned aluminum valve covers. These air cleaners never came from the factory on any Cougar, but were an over the counter option available from your local Ford dealer as seen in the "How To Sharpen Your Cats Claws" Shelby marketing literature. If you have a nice original hood blanket, you may want to think twice before using it in conjunction with this air cleaner as it will leave an imprint. To avoid this problem with small block cars you can use a lower profile carburetor spacer, but on big block cars, this is not an option due to the already thin design of the factory carburetor spacer. This will work with all single 2 and 4 barrel carburetors and features a stamped steel base.   


    21" deep by 10" wide by 2 1/2" tall, the spacer is 1.5" tall as well

    Includes everything pictured, including  the oval air filter, air cleaner stud and wing nut.

    Looks and fits awesome on my ‘68 XR7! Already had the valve covers so this completed the dress up. Very well made product and worth the investment.

    Installed this on my 70 Cougar and looks great. Fits perfect on my Holley carb. Still lots to do on the 351C and this made a great improvement.

    Great looking!

    Very cool product. Kind of a finishing touch since I already had the walking cat valve covers. Really looks good when you open up the hood!!

    Although my engine is not installed the dry fit of the air cleaner makes the setup look complete and unique. The fit on Idelbrock was not tight, and WCCC did not have Idelbrock as a recommended application for this set up. I am very satisfied.

    This uses the standard oval air cleaner element that was used on the oval air cleaners of that vintage, used on many Mustangs, Shelby Cobras, T-birds, etc. I believe even K&N makes a replacement filter that will fit this.
