    Does anyone have pictures of a 65 Mustang with a 68 shelby hood? I found a few searching on google but none have been finished, they are all just a gel coat hood thrown on a car so you get an idea of what it looks like. I would like to see what a nice finished version looks like.

    I'm assuming your talking about this hood.

    I did a quick search and found this. Its the 67 style, which I think looks tons better on 65-66. I don't see any pictures of 68 style on 65-66. Maybe there is a reason for that.

    What I wish someone would make is a turn signal hood for 65-66.

    Now that I see that 67' style in a finished condition I'm liking it. Does anyone have some good advice on where to get one thats good quality?

    I'm glad you like it, I think it really does look better than the 68 style. Sorry, I don't know about the quality of them.

    Maier Racing makes a really nice quality hood in this style.

    It doesn't look all that bad, but the 67 style is so much better.

    The Mustang was completely redesigned for 67. It was longer and wider, but it did have the same 108-inch wheelbase of its earlier predecessor. The pics are truly gorgeous.
