PICS: A 1962 Ford Hardtop with a 406ci - 405hp engine is one of my all time favorite muscle cars......
but I am not a fan of that style hood. It's acceptable if the induction has been modified to a height that doesn't fit under a stock hood but only then, in my opinion. Also, if I had owned one with this engine and 4-speed, I'd have ordered a much plainer, lighter car. Given my inability to afford one then, or probably now, I've gone ahead and created one.
As it would look if in my garage:
I prefer the original but agree that the hood scoop is a bit overdone and should be lower profile.
I agree with the thoughts expressed above.
Thanks, gentlemen, I appreciate your comments.
