hi
it came on top of a 1958 318" Plymouth engine but does not look like the pix of the correct one for a '58. See below for UrL of what a 58 air cleaner looks like. Can someone identify what year and what car this one is for?

all this means I"ll be looking to find and buy the correct one. If you know of one, please inform me. thank you for your time.

That looks like '55-'56 DeSoto. But many cars used a similar one so it is hard to nail it down.

I should have noticed (but didn't) that that oil bath was for a 2 bbl carb. As soon as you see the end loop of the tightening clamp, you know it is for a 2 bbl carb (probably a Stromberg WW3-nnn)
