Air cleaner... where to find one like this?

My dad used to say that such air filters were designed to keep small rocks and low flying birds out of the engine.

Regardless, no proper restoration or preservation of a car that had such a filter is complete without one. But if you think that needs a replacement? You haven't resurrected anything bad yet! Looks like an easy fix.

I would say fix as well unless you have a bad dent in the louvered area somewhere you didn't show.   Try running that number on ebay in current and completed listings if you really must have a new one.  Even a google image search may find one for sale listed on a different site.

That number on the side is the "size". It is not a part number.

 

What is the stamping?  As near as I can tell, it reads: "4.6X144".  Or am I seeing things?  If so, what size would that be ... metric?

 

Cheers,

It actually says, "4.5X144". Not sure how it is measured.
