Air Cleaners (1970 R-Code)

During the 1969 and 1970 model years there were two basic air cleaners available for your Cobra Jet Mustang: Q-code cars received an enclosed air cleaner with a chromed lid (this same lid was also used on Boss 302 Mustangs), and R-code cars received a special "ram air" air cleaner with an air scoop that protruded through a hole in the hood. The ram air setup came to be known as the "shaker" air cleaner because of the way the scoop would shake in response to changes in engine RPMs. Goose the throttle and watch it move!

All 1968 428 Cobra Jet Mustangs were equipped with a ram air system installed as standard equipment. Although all of the pieces used in the system were basically the same, at least three different revisions were made between April 1968 and the end of production in July 1968.
