    Wondering if any of you guys have used the early A fiberglass hood that VFN sells? They list a bolt on stock fiberglass hood for 300.00 which seems fair to me but the shipping to So. California would probably kill me!

          There was a guy here in Canada on the west coast in BC who had a ton of old muscle car molds. He and his dad made nice stuff. I got my duster hood and scoop from there for $330 Canadian delivered. All the molds are for sale as their health got bad.

                    That's a Street Scenes (Summit #950-72121, I think. I can't find the paperwork on it)
                    But I did have to modify it, to get a look I was looking for. Also too, I eliminated the 'bubble' on the hood, so that it didn't obstruct the scoop opening. Here it is on the original steel hood.
                    Shipping on the VFN hood was $200 and I had to go to the ABF shipping depot to receive it.

                      Thank you, 604B1duster, I really appreciate that.
