What color should the inside of the air cleaner be on a '70..I have an old one I am restoring I can't tell if it's natural or a satin type black color..too many years of rust and grime...

I called a buddy on this one. He said it looks like they painted it semi or gloss black first and the blue overspray from the outside kind of dulled it down a bit on the raised part around the perimeter of the carb opening.

Seen some painted a duller color - black
More often on San Jose cars same as exterior of the air cleaner then others have a different tone on the inside likely due to exposure to fuel and backfires ;)

In fact I painted the Boss's air cleaner inside and out and now the inside area inside the air cleaner is a chalky black :(
