    I'm restoring a 65 fastback and want to add the shelby style bolt on hood scoop. I was looking for some advice on which one to use. And good or bad stories out there? Who has the best one out there? I've heard Branda has a good one. I've also heard some bad stories about fitment on some as well. What do you all think?

    Thanks!

    the 64.5 i just bought came with one..kinda crappy i think..it looks ok but its fiberglass..someone tried glassing or bondoing it on what looks like lonh time ago and it didnt work....guess ill just bolt it on...

    imo the all glass hood i have on my 66 is way better[​IMG]

    i bought the hood from stang-aholics .it is all fiberglass and very heavy .the scoop has a finnished lip instead of just being cut out and so does the front lip
    of the hood its self. the bolt on scoops i have never used , it just doesn't look the same to me .hoods are expensive so a bolt on may be the way to go if you are on a tight budget. IMG_2203.JPG IMG_2206.JPG

    Thanks. With bolt on make sure before you drill figure where the bolts will end up. Don't want to hit a cross member support or where nuts would end in hard to get to spot. I had to bring mine forward a little more then where they end up on fiberglass hoods.

    that is correct, i put a scoop on a 68 cougar ,it is the GTE scoop, it normaly hits right in the bracing
    but if it were to hit half in and half out you may have a problem so i would measure carefully first

    Any idea how much added clearance this hood scoop will give you? I am looking at this type of hood, or possibly the '67 style hood, and need an additional 1.5" of clearance. I don't care for the look of the cowl hood.

    with the full fiberglass hood it will be just about 1 1/2 inch. with a bolt on scoop you will have to cut out the bottom of your steel hood
