      beware the one on e-bay. the photo used is identical to the one for an Avanti that was for a sale in the San Jose craigslist. It was being sold as part of the car to restore it back to R2 original configuration. May just be a coincidence but Sunnyvale is right next to San Jose.

          Is it going in an Avanti, Hawk, or Lark? All three air cleaners are different. Carburetor bonnets are different between Avanti and Hawk/Lark. The Ebay one is for an Avanti.

          The price is about right. The carburetor bonnets (repops) are $150. Hawk Air Canisters are big bucks if you can find one ($300-450). Lark and Avanti's are more common. It Looks like you would have to re-plate that Ebay one so think about $150-200 more/

            It will going on an Avanti. I've already got an air cleaner, but it is in pretty rough shape.
