George, anybody...

did the Ford parts counter offer an air cleaner housing or base with a 7-5/16" opening for the Holley 4500, or were the D1ZX-FA guys running open, aftermarket or Nascar air boxes?

They constructed home made air cleaners that were low profile to fit under the hood and had cold air plumbing

Shelby listed one (for the Holley 4575), but I doubt it was ever used in serious competition.
I suspect that Holman-Moody made their own.

Summit has some generic period correct Cal Custom looking sets for a pretty fair price, maybe use the tallest filter i can fit as a basis for a home brew Ram Air with the 72 GT hood

that's a helpful piece but the 72 Torino GT hood has it's own factory style Ram Air that takes air from the scoop, here's a guys mostly factory looking bodge

i would do a more home brew look w/o the midplate, just a larger diameter outer housing with foam to seal to a panel in the bottom of the hood
