Thread: Anyone have any idea what fiberglass carb scoop a mid 70's Eliminator looks like?

  1. #1

    Anyone have any idea what fiberglass carb scoop a mid 70's Eliminator looks like?

    As some of you may have read, I recently purchased a 1975 Eliminator semi V. The previous owner told me it originally came with a fiberglass carb scoop that he removed in 1978. He didn't like that it had no air filter since the road to the Jones Valley boat ramp on Lake Shasta was mainly dirt at the time. He couldn't remember where he put it or what it looked like. I want to keep this boat as close to original in appearance as possible.

    Any input, pictures or leads will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Brian

    It all depends on how it was ordered. I think the original standard scoop was the old Nicson style flame arrestor.

    I had a dozen of them but now the rat rodders are collecting those. the price is crazy compared to the $5 or $10 I was giving at the swap meet or yard sales. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-1960s-RA...1XMA8y&vxp=mtr
