    I'm thinking again, which right now is all I can afford to do. :)
    I have a '69 Notch, which currently has a '68 hood and nose piece. I have a '74 Dart hood, which I think is the 'correct' (appearing, anyway) hood for the car, and yes I know about the hinge/hood mount hole difference. If I can find a nose piece sometime, I'd like to put the twin scoop setup (the separate scoops, not the twin one-piece scoop.. two separate ones about where the heads would be, like on the Darts and Dusters). I think it'd look nice on it, and it's still 'Mopar-ish' appearing.
    I've looked all over and never seen one like this.. has anyone?
    Thoughts welcome :)

      I should have taken a picture. I was at an auction this last weekend that had a 67 fastback. It had the Dart scoops on it. Didn't look too bad. Could have done without the Go-Wing on the back .

        Flat hoods are sexy. :)

          I like my hood flat, but I did think about it. I like the surprised look it gets when I open the hood.

            If you're gonna put two scoops on a '69 notch. This would be the proper way.:thumbsup:

                Flat hood unless you have intake that requires a scoop.

                Twin scoops only when it's factory...even them I'd be tempted to replace with flat.

                Yes when it is all under! Or you just prefer that stock look for your 69.

                The twin snorkel fits nice and looks great but took mine off.

                I don't like go-wings. I think though, that a small spoiler like a '69 camaro had, might look nice on a notch.

                  Evidently my wife agrees. I know the flat hoot on my '84 Diplomat squad is what made the difference. :)

                      I know that's 'proper'... my Cuda is so far gone from original, just looking to have a car I like. :)

                        Yes, and maybe a bit over the quarter... road racer kind of look.

                        I've also thought about opening the hood up the entire length of those scoops. Not for cool intake air, but to lower under hood temps. They are right over the heads/exhaust manifolds.. lot of heat would leak out in traffic, and maybe a bit of downstream air on the highway. As I said, I have time for thinking :)

                          I've always wondered with those scoops, are they open on the hood? Is there a special air cleaner to use with those?

                          No fresh air with those. Just decoration.

                            This is my old race car with a 75 dart sport hood. On my current car I found a set of butchered cuda scoops and made them functional, using the same rubber rings as the dual scoops on the darts.

                              I vote, as usual, make it to fit your tastes.
                              I also have a few F bodies, the snorkel scoop is added by many people although it was never factory. I like the look. But I tend to be more correct with other models. All in what you like.

                                    That's a pretty notch! I love that color.. I think my oldest brother had a '68 Charger that color.

                                    That old pic really reminds me of the way mine was. Only with the polished Centerline Auto drags, that are still on the car today. Same color and look.

                                    Build it your way! I've added the (now functional) twin scoops, the V21 style paint treatment and '70 Rallye wheels to my Dart GT. I like it.

                                      Problem w the "periscope scoops" is they are non functional
