Ramcharger MW decal placement (was Re: Kissimmee 2024 Mecum '62 to '65 Mopars)



Hi all,

I don't recall an answer to Rich's question (copied below) about where the factory put the decals on the Max Wedge car air cleaners. Top or side? Or both ways?

A review: 

Here is a photo of the 1962 max wedge engine at Mecum's 2024 Florida auction:

Here is a photo of Rich's 1963 Dodge's air cleaners

 and his 1963 Dodge

Many of the 1963 similarly-equipped cars have the decals on the side of the air cleaner. For example, this tribute 1963:

and this supposedly 1 of 15 1963 'vert

Lastly, a photo of a 1964 426 has the decals on the top.

Does anyone know the details on decal placement?
