Anyone have the dimensions for the cartridge for the chrome R 1 air filter?

I don't have the dimensions but when I owned a '63 R1, it used the same air filter element as my '64 Pontiac Bonneville 389 4-barrel.

Thanks , but that's not good enough for my local FLAP store . I also was told that a Ford 289 HP filter is the same but they told me they need measurements in order to match me up .

Old stock # Purolator AFP-80
2 3/16 Height 13 1/4 Diameter Filter material about 1 inch thick
That is as close as I can measure the filter

Really, is it so hard for them to just look up a Police Interceptor 406 '64 Ford or one of MANY Hi-Performance Fords using that Element? :mad:

It's a fact of life, if you are in the old car business, then you HAVE to be YOUR OWN PARTS PERSON . In other words it's up to you to research what fits and doesn't fit, AND THE CURRENT PART NUMBERS.
If you find a parts store wiling to look in books, and cross references for you, then you are in the MINORITY.

The K&N E-1560 is supposed to be a direct fit for the R-1 air cleaner

WIX 42063, NAPA 2063, or Fram CA-114 also work.
