    Wasn’t the snorkel on the 4 barrel air cleaner a larger diameter than the two barrel?

    1966 Cruisers and (and I believe Daytonas) had an all-chrome cap as standard, and were optional on Commanders.

    Those are often aftermarkets by Stant.

    Very Nice looking '63 Daytona Bobby.

    That does look like a correct USA version, Dry Type, United Specialties AFB 4 Brl. Air Cleaner, but the intake tube has been lengthened and should go straight to the Right, and then the Decal moved to the correct front and center.

    If it IS a ONE Brl. one for a 6 Cyl. engine opened up to fit the 4 Brl. it will work as good as the Factory 4 Brl.

    The '63-'64 4 Brl. Air Cleaner inlets were way undersized and the same size as the 2 Brl. ones, begging for more air like the R1 Type could give.

    The Master Cylinders with the one piece Copper Cover and single, centered Screw, have been obsolete for a very long time, so not easy to find anymore and New AMC replacements like this are all that is available New.

    It's a fantastic car, nit-pickers notwithstanding. They're jealous.

    1963 Lark wheelcovers were this pressing/shape, but a large portion of them was painted (unless perhaps this was not initially a USA car).

    Thanks for all the input, I enjoyed reading everyone of them. I have the original master cylinder and Alternator. The owner said the hub caps and air-cleaner are original and that the car did come with dual exhaust. I took the body number plate off and painted it. It is the original one that belongs on the car. The side exterior mirrors were an option that year but I do not believe they are located in the correct place and I believe there should be only one on the drivers' side. (I have the original hand book that came with the car that shows all the options that was available that year and it shows that exact side mirror as one of the options.)

    Dual exhaust looks OK, Gary. Not only was it available separately, but the car appears to have a 4-bbl carburetor as well; all kosher. BP

    I only spot wheel covers, and interior door and quarter panel upholstery.

    Beautiful car.

    The '64's get most of the love, but I think the '63 has its charms too. I've owned both.
