    Does anyone have the base dimensions for a 68KR? Need one and having trouble locating it. Is the KR base the only one that fits or does the 68 GT500 PI or 69 GT500 also fit?

    The 1968 GT500 (PI) uses an oval air cleaner.

    The 1969 GT500 uses a 1969 style base that is similar, but not the same.

    The 1968 base is a 1968 ram air base with a special, unique heat duct. (snorkel)

    If you don't know what you are doing, you better be very careful here. There are a lot of look alikes and rip off artists.

    Reproduction snorkels range in price from $750-1000. Reproduction bases are $900.

    If you want real stuff, expect to pay double those numbers.

    Do you have a yellow KR? What number is it?

    Yes, WT6066 Yellow #03590. So will any 68 CJ base fit? and it's just the snorkel that is unique? Thanks for the info.

    Can you verify if the air cleaner base measurement across the top is 16 1/4" and the lid is 14" across? Sure appreciate all the good info.
