Air cleaner assembly for 2bbl 327 Vigilante

I've got a '65 Wagoneer with a 327 Vigilante. When I bought her she had a modern air cleaner assembly on top of a 2bbl carburetor - carb was an old Motorcraft 2bbl mounted on a Ford spacer plate. Sucked air through the gaskets because it wasn't shaped right. What I thought was the original air cleaner assembly (oil bath type) was in the floor of the vehicle, but I never looked at it carefully until now.

It appears to be for a single barrel carburetor - at least the hole seems about that size (smaller than for a 2bbl).

It is the original "rampart red" color with the flat, ribbed air intake tube. Looks just like what I see in pictures of the 327 Vigilante's original air cleaner.

Does anyone have a 2bbl assembly for sale? Or better yet, is there a way to convert what I have to the 2bbl?

Thank you.

John - although not 100% sure I think that would have had a Carter 2-barrel but I don't know the model number. This carb (as well as the Rochester Dualjet) has a small throat when compared to the Autolite/Motorcraft. Is it possible your air cleaner is for a smaller 2-barrel?

The AMC 327's with a Carter 2bbl had a small opening on the top of the carb, much smaller than the later model Motorcraft carbs. I wanted to replace my 2210 with a more modern carb but decided not to due to the air cleaner issue. I even decided against modifying the air cleaner housing to accept a paper cartridge filter out of concern that I wouldn't be able to find an element to fit.
The good news is that these air cleaners work well and aren't too much trouble!

Correction- it just needed a water pump!
