[GFS] Round Air Filters?

I decided it was time to replace the air filters on my 58 350.  As many of 
you know, my car is unrestored and I believe very original.  When I removed the 
air cleaners, which are oval as we all know, the filter element inside was 
round, 6 1/4" OD, 5" ID and 2 3/8" high.  The base of the air cleaner has two 
raised sheet metal brackets to support the round filter element.  They fit very 
snug; this does not look like an aftermarket addition or someone trying to make 
the wrong filter fit.

When I orderred the new filters, from Andy Bernbaum in Massachusetts, I got 
oval filters, and they fit fine.  When I called Bernbaums they said they never 
heard of round filters in the oval air cleaners.

Anyone else ever seen round filters?  Does your lower air cleaner housings 
have supports which look like they would hold a round filter element?

Just one more thing, my air cleaners, as well as valve covers, fan, gas 
lines, etc, are chrome plated, which also seem rare but not unheard of.

Thanks for the help.
