Can anyone identify this snorkel

Hi all,
Im having trouble identifying this snorkel. I first thought it was cobra jet but it isn't. Then possibly KR. Looks close, but no. The reason I thought these 2 is that I had a KR about 10 years ago and I still have a 69 cobra jet. I had a 71 cobra jet, but I don't have any pictures to judge.
This snorkel has a extra piece between the part that mounts to the air cleaner and the part that the hose mounts to. I supplied some pictures.
Hope someone knows what this is.

Thanks Guys

The vacuum operated flap was to pull warm air from over the exhaust manifold until the engine warmed up and then from the front of the snorkel...

Looks like a standard 390 snorkel that was flipped over on the mounting end side of snorkel to replicate a 438 CJ snorkel. Then it looks like some material was added to extend the pieces a few inches(that's got me scratching my head). The mounting end of snorkel also looks like it was squared off to replicate a 428cj snorkel. A lot of the spot welds looked like they were drilled out to perform the aforementioned modifications then plug welded back it.

The extension could have been added to make it work for a KR ??

I’ve got a very similar snout to yours that has a mirrored bend orientation to the air cleaner connection. Was mistakenly placed on a ’70 Cleveland. Have no idea what it went on either. Maybe we’ll both find out.
