What is the reason for both straight & curved monte carlo bars? I was under the impression that curved was for oval air cleaner clearance but, I see both used on basically stock setups. I'm looking to put one on a 69 vert 3512bbl that is basically stock.
Thanks, Bob

You are correct in your thinking. The curved bar was originaly produced for cars with the long shelby type aircleaner and for 2-4 Barrels. I like them because they give you more room around the carburetor for working on it and enables you to run a larger air cleaner if you so desire.
