I don't have a much better photo of it. It's all fiberglass, though. I stumbled across it on ebay years ago and I've held on to it ever since. It needs a little work.


When I first got it, the scoop inlets were solid so I did a little bit of cutting. Haven't seen one like it since. Curious as to who made these.

The link below shows a similar hood, scroll to bottom right of illustration.  It does not appear on the list of offerings that I could find.  Maybe it is a custom for them.  I have a note that somebody here had a problem with this company.  Without wipers, you may not being driving in the rain.  Is that a 79-80 glue in windshield installed in a early model (small bumpers)?  Nice looking Pinto.

If that hood came from that place it's extremely rare because 99% of people never got their parts from that guy. There are posts everywhere about people getting ripped off by them.
