by ol school do you mean redneck?

i've had air cleaners that used oil but never an oil filter? maybe that is where he hid his stash.

i'm sure an ol timer knows what that is?

I saw one once at a car show and the guy told me it was a baffle to reduce the 4-barrel air induction noise when you stomped on it. I think he said it was hollow?

Those were to reduce the 'roar' of the intake noise. It was a luxury car and noise reduction was important. GM used a snorkel air cleaner that choked off the air to the carb. Used to flip the air cleaner lid on my parents 455 Buick, boy was that loud! Would then chirp 2nd gear around 45 mph.

This one looked like a motorcraft oil filter can, if you poke around will also find a vacuum tank that looked like a can of tomato soup.

That I believe is a disposable intake air oil bath precleaner they work wonders and can remove 95 percent plus of dust due to the capture mesh and the oil in the base of the cartridge.
