On one hand, I recognize that you usually get what you pay for, on the other hand, more expensive does not necessary mean better. In other words, I never pick the cheap stuff and usually not the most expensive either. i tend to go for what I perceive the best price for the best product.

 

But Eckler’s web site fall short of information to fuel my decision process and I am puzzled by the price range for air cleaner covers. Price range from $17.99 to $144.99 and little information to comprehend the differences in the products. Does any one know better?

 

SKU 25-112044-1 1966-1972 Corvette Air Cleaner Cover Chrome 14”. $17.99

SKU 25-102768-1 1970-1972 Corvette Stock Air Cleaner Cover Chrome $130.99

SKU 25-106855-1 1970-1972 Corvette Air Cleaner Cover Flash Chromed With Square Screen $97.99

SKU 25-106853-1 1970-1972 Corvette Air Cleaner Cover Chrome With Square Screen $144.99

Import -v- Domestic.   After market -v- O.E.M. Thickness of the chrome, and quality of fit. Big block -v- small block, carburator, ALL play a part in cost.
