Am I certain of anything?  heck no!

You're not the only one who's never seen this set-up in a JH.

Every GT I've seen has this set-up so I can assume it was standard from the factory.  My father's JH had it and I bought a California JH years ago that had it.

There were only ~500 GTs produced so compared to 10,000 JHs this is a very rare item.  Even more rare in the late JHs.

The question still remains why Huffaker chose not to use it.....

Update:  After checking the old Road&Track, et. al. articles; I could find one pic of a LHD GT with the factory 'cold/ram air' package.  In a British car mag I saw a pic of a RHD GT with the familiar JH 'muffler' air intake. 

My guess is that with US emissions, the factory was trying every trick (110/100 timing, et. al.) to preserve HP in the later cars.
