Your photo looks great, but I recently replaced my set. Too bad, as you are being very fair. I'm sure you will get a taker.

Indeed. I believe the replacement/replicas do NOT have the stamped text on them.

Very nice part you have there.

Did you sell this in the end ?

If you didn't, I'd be interested.

If you are interested I have an original canister, including brackets. It will need to be refinished but otherwise in good condition. The filter is used.

The canister is from my 69 S4 DHC that I picked up at the UK Lotus factory (Hethel) in July 1969. The car traveled throughout the UK and Europe for that summer and then was shipped back to California where it has resided ever since (thus the minimal rust). I have a recently much uprated engine (181 hp) that requires more airflow and thus I am not using the OEM canister any more. Glad to see it go to a good home.

Note that unlike the reproduction units, this one has the original lettering.

PM me if you are interested.

Wow! 181 HP. Is this in a street driven car? If so, can you outline the changes? How is the driveability?

I've used a stroker crank, much hotter cams, and lots of porting and still only get 157 HP. Would love to hear more and a pic would be great too!

Oh, what are you asking for the air filter canister?

For those that are interested in the air filter canister please PM me with your best offer (excluding shipping). I will ship at cost (depending how you want it shipped) and let you know total price (your offer including shipping) for your final agreement before payment.

Regarding Famous Frank's questions about my car (181hp), some of this has been addressed in previous posts. To not highjack this thread I will start a new thread that gives summary details on my build.
