Can anyone identify the air box shown. I know that the backing plate matches exactly what Gary has for 26/4020 so it should be what I need for 26/4050, but the fibergalss portion is from what? Europa, Cortina, Shooting Brake, Humpty Dumpty?

On the sue Miller catalogue it is written :

"Airbox stickers, pair 1 silver on black, 1 red on white"

Mine must have disapeared a long time ago... Anyone knows which one to put according to the year of the car?
What does it says?
Any pics? :mrgreen:

thanks

From a closer view I'd have to suggest Humpty Dumpty...you can see where he fell on it!

Had a big fall.jpg and


The shortage of gel coat, and other signs, indicates a DIY custom moulding...

hi Smithy26r
Why the K&N sticker? I know they make great filters (I have a set on my Elan) but not in an airbox....

Possibly a cone filter at the end of the air intake duct. A gimbal like Clivey Boy makes and they work like a charm......... Only mine is green like the car.

Hi RedS4,

prezoom and rgh0 are correct, it,s a K&N Cone Filter from Cliveyboy..........a good bit of kit!
