I am in the process of restoring my mustang while I am home from college. While I am not looking to restore it to concourse level, I do want certain things to be correct so I would love some insight to my question. I have a July 64 289 D Code and underwent the convertible conversion by a previous owner (I know I’m not a fan of it either) but when I got the car the air cleaner and valve covers were blue. I understand they should be gold and I was in the process of painting the air cleaner when I realized it was never painted gold and seemed to be a different shape than most 289 air cleaners. It has the code 6F on the snorkel and I will attach pictures but it seems to be taller and have the ridge or lip that goes around it unlike most 289 AC I have seen. Anyways, I’m not sure if this air cleaner came off of a 260 or a fairlane or something like that along the way or if somehow it’s original. I would appreciate any help or insight I can get as I’m having to teach myself a lot of this as I go, thanks!

The correct air cleaner for the 65-66 Mustang with a 289 is the larger 17" air cleaner. Yours is the air cleaner that was fitted to 289 equipped Fairlanes, Comets, etc. The air cleaner you have is taller and can dent your hood.
