Most of the 430cid pics I see in our T-Birds don't have the aircleaner "snorkel" on left side of them (off the exhaust manifold). Is this like a RARE part often discarded by owners or what? I'm the 2nd owner of my 1960 Bird, and mine is still installed...:confused:

Only 430 Thunderbirds and possibly cars sent to Canada had the snorkel extension. All Thunderbirds, even without the snorkel had the wing-nut on the air cleaner, ready for the extension.

So by saying "all Thunderbirds, even w/o the snorkle, had the wing-nut on the air cleaner, ready for the extension.", are you saying my dad's 1958 352cid T-Bird should have a wing-nut on it's air cleaner left (air intake) edge? As well as, a 1959 & 1960 352cid T-Bird?
