Default need correct oil bath air cleaner

Hello ,
I am finding out that there must be two types of air cleaners that mount on the Holley 94 intake . I am new at this hobby . I see that there are two different intake types .My Holley 94 I bought from National Carburator has the short height intake with a v-shaped inverted flange . The last two I bought on EBAY and returned is for a Holley intake that is different It has a much higher collar and is flat .So , I need an oil bath type air cleaner that fits what I described from National Carburator not a modern type .My intake outside diameter must be 2 5/8 inch not 2.5 Can anyone sell me one or point where to look ?
Best Regards

The carburetors with the V-shaped inverted flange were used on trucks. You are going to want a truck air cleaner, but that could lead to other fitment problems and would be incorrect anyway. IIRC, you are working on a '48 convertible; It would probably be easier all around to find the correct carburetor top, swap it in, and get a correct air cleaner. Both should be easy to find ("Swap Meet" here or eBay or Craigslist).
