Default 1960 fuel filter

I have a 1960 T-Bird with a 352 engine. There is a spin on filter on the carburetor. The local auto parts store has no listing for it. Where can I find this filter? Thanks.

Default RE: 1960 fuel filter

After much anquish I found out the threads for that filter is actually a MS (flareless) thread. After hitting every auto place in Phoenix, Az. I finally found the fittings I needed at the local Home Depot. Then bought a MS fitting that matched the AN beveled filter input to the carb. I wrapped a couple of layers of teflon tape on the fitting. It had a internal 1/4 inch thread on the other end so another fitting screwed into it that gave me a 1/4 inch hose connector. Then I bought a "Normal" filter. Been working good now for a couple months.

Ultimately I will probably take the old filter apart and have the AN beveled thread welded to the female fitting and have a better patch for the lack of filters.
