Caddy / Olds Batwing Air Cleaner From O’Brien Truckers

Caddy / Olds Batwing Air Cleaner

As the trend toward nostalgia continues and hard-to-find parts disappear, O’BRIEN TRUCKERS has made it their business to faithfully fill that void, this time with a two-piece aluminum version of the ever-popular Caddy / Olds “batwing” air cleaner that’s been a favorite for over a half a century.


This air cleaner was formerly produced by Bitchin Products, and having acquired the tooling, O’BRIEN’S will continue to produce it in the USA.
It’s been downsized to compliment your engine rather than cover it up, and features a cupped underside to allow plenty of room for rear-mounted distributors.  It accepts a standard over-the-counter replacement air cleaner element, and you get your choice of three different tops in either “as cast” or polished finish.  If you don’t mind a little extra lead time, O’BRIENS will also be happy to polish the entire air cleaner for you.
The tops are available smooth, finned, or with sculptured flames, and each air cleaner comes with a 1/4-20 stud and stainless steel knurled nut to hold everything together. Total height is 5”.
The price is $200 each unpolished, or $350 fully polished. Check these beauties out on the O’BRIEN TRUCKERS website, along with a truckload of other period-correct nostalgic products. O’BRIEN TRUCKERS, 29 A. Young Road, Charlton, MA 01507 508-248-1555.
