72 Cutlass Supreme Air Filter


Asked by Jan 21, 2014 at 11:47 AM about the 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

OK so recently ive devoted a lot of time to checking everything and replacing what needs
to be replaced in my 72 cutlass. Now i come to the air filter. Generally i see these circular
ruffled types of air filters but when i checked mine i didnt see anything like that. It has an
Edelbrock top and a circular gray styrofoam around it that says Accel. Is this how my air
filter should look? Thank you guys, i really appreciate all the help.

Someone has put on an aftermarket filter system on it, the gray is a prefilter for the regular filter, those can be cleaned and reused a few times before they start to break down, I used those on my 302 ford engine out in the dirt, they really did catch some of the fine stuff first.


Great Thanks! So Can i keep this prefilter and then apply an actual air filter inside?
