I want to replace my air cleaner assembly to a K&N 14" diameter x 3" on a 1971 Caddy Coupe Deville 472. I found these, (links below each one), but don't know which one will fit best. Any help??

If your wondering about hood clearance, I would try to mock up the stock air cleaner to be the same height as the aftermarket options and put 1 or 2" pieces of clay on top of the cleaner to see how much they squash when you close the hood, of course closing it gently on the first try.
