Monte Carlo bar and air cleaner

I got a Monte Carlo bar with curve for my 66 w/200 ci six. It won't fit with the stock air cleaner. Because the air cleaner is off center to the passenger side and the bar has the curve in the center the bar won't fit.

Solution: get an air cleaner with a smaller diameter.
I'm not doing car shows, not looking for concours, or even strict originality. (I've already replace the carb with a universal, added an export brace, etc.)

Has anyone already done this? If so, what air cleaner did you get? What I'm seeing on the sites for the major parts stores are either crazy expensive or 13" in diameter - no improvement.

Thanks.

OK, maybe I wasn't paying enough attention when I ordered from CJ, but what I have has the curve in the center.
That thread makes mention of the "Bronco" setup. Is a Bronco air cleaner smaller? (diameter)

You ordered the V8 bar. See if CJP will exchange it...

Vintage Inlines might have something that fits. They have an assortment of 6 cylinder air cleaners over there.
