Does somebody have the measurement or could you measure the diameter of a 1968 GT500KR Shelby Ram Air cleaner? I would appreciate it.

Housing = 16 3/8   Top plate = 14 that's what I have.

Awesome!  By the way did you measure at the top of the lip and inside diameter or outside diameter for the housing or was this measurement taken at the bottom of the housing with it flipped over?
