    I have contacted K & N to manufacture a new air filter for a 1962/63 Jetfire’s. I have a quote for a custom unit for our cars. If anyone is interested please contact me. It would be there filter number TB-0300 but 4.5″ tall. Take a look and get back to me. The cost would be $88.69 each. These are reusable!
    Thanks,

    Eric,
    I just received the K & N air filter yesterday. Fits very nice. I will attach a few photos of the filter and a few of the old paper filter. I know for the cost of the filter and piece of mind I would like a quality air filter on my engine. These are reusable. Take a look and let me know what you think.

    The filter is $90 + shipping.

    Just got my K&N filters. I had them make me an extra one just to have around or if anyone wanted one and not have to wait for 6-8 weeks. With shipping and all i have $100 in it so i would need $100 + shipping to you. I’m not looking to make money, Just thought the jetfire community could use one available when needed.

    Thanks Ken for the time you put into having this done.

    This looks like a really neat option, I wonder if it would have any benefits over running the foam over the screen setup?

    I do not know the CFM of the intake on these cars but I feel Oldsmobile did a good job of making the surface area of the filter area large enough to take care of the engines needs. For air flow purposes I am not sure there would be a big gain by going K&N over foam (but K&N couldn’t be worse than foam). The nice thing about the K&N is that you know it is going to seal correct. If you get the foam to thick or use to much oil on the foam then the K&N will definitely flow better. If you use the foam i would recommend using off road foam filter oil and not motor oil. The off road filter oil will not run to the bottom of the foam and filter better.

    Just my thoughts on this.

    My extra filter is no longer available. You will have to contact K&N now.

    thanks.
