Need to raise some quick cash to help buy a rusty 74 Spider that just became available.

This airbox does not clear my cam covers so I cannot use it with any of my engines.
Been hanging on to it for years, not sure what it's worth, make a fair offer and it's yours.

Top halve casting 105 .02.08.210.02
Cannot find a casting # for the lower.
Nice original finish, I can bead-blast them if desired but that would alter their appearance.

Very similar or identical parts on eBay (But not as clean) are $250 - $500.

So it looks like the guys wanting $500.00 for their ratty bead blasted units on feeBay are dreaming.

Seems to be the sort of part that is only really valuable when I am BUYING.

How about $150.00 shipped?

Interest if this could work with a 2000 in a GT Sprint application with Webers.

It'll physically fit on pretty much any 105 car. Duetto, Super, early Euro Berlina, GTV, they all used this part in the 1964-1967 era. That said, you need a 105 1600 cam cover with the dip in it to clear the snorkel, and you need the room for, and a way to attach, the filter can over on the exhaust side inner fender, which a 2000 GTV wouldn't have. Or I guess you could fashion some kind of other filter.

This airbox is supported by a long strut from the intake motor mount, and a short strut off one flex mount stud, though that one is often missing.

Support rods are easily fabricated and I do have a sample to make a drawing from.

I was going to mount an air cleaner in the nose where the air should be cooler.

I can confirm that you do need the cam cover with the dip in it.
If not I would be using it myself.

Yeah, tdskip, should fit fine in a stock Sprint GT. It'll sit a but higher due to the taller 2000 block, but there should be room under the hood.

Mocked up my rebuilt engine on the test stand today.
Stuck the carbs on the manifold and tried the air box.
Looks like if I put a spacer between the plenum portion and top piece it would clear my cam cover.
Or, since it seems these really are not that valuable I could just cut down the snorkel portion.
So I will probably find a way to use it.
