You've pretty much described it here.

Well, since I've not found a 'wet can' either, they both seem to be
very difficult to find. I've been looking for a stock air cleaner
since last Oct when I bought the car. I'll use either, I just want
 to get rid of the current, and I use the term loosely, air cleaners, 
that are currently on there. They are so small, I'm suprised it runs 
at all with them. I'm not really interested in aftermarket cleaners 
since I have original equipment type carbs, I'd like the original type 
air cleaner. (Yes, yes, I know '69s had FI, not carbs so they're not
original - just humor me here).
