    uhm, thats not a 68 shelby scoop, thats a 67 shelby scoop. the 68 shelby hood scoop looks more like this hood;

    as you can see the scoop gets real near the edge of the hood. but i think they look fine on the early cars.

    it fits just fine . they make a hood with the 67 scoop in fiberglass.
    if you bond one on a steel hood i am not sure where the scoop openings will hit in the under bracing though, if you want to cut them out

    I was hoping to see a 68 scoop on a 65, lol. Im not sure how that would look, but it would be interesting.
