This is what I wanted for my car, but I am not a fan of the louvers. Any chance that it will be offered without louvers?

What we currently do with 68 Shelby style we make for the 67-68 is just fill in the louvers. We can do the same thing for the 65-66. Two other things we are doing on this hood is will be be completely lined underneath like all the hoods we make, and we will make this one for hood pins on the side like the original hood. Currently no one makes this hood so you could use the hood pins.

Any idea what (if any) additional clearance there would be in the middle of the hood? I am getting ready to drop the motor into mine and will likely need some sort of raised hood. A 65-66 Shelby hood is too small, a cowl hood is an option of course, but I would prefer to do something a bit different. This hood might fit the bill along with the bumper, valance and header panel as well.

Well lets put it this way. We can shove a 5.8 Shelby engine in and it clears with this hood.

The manufacturer of this hood has a serious problem, if you look at the 3rd picture you can see the hood is already hitting the safety and still needs to go down almost 3/4 of an inch. I'll have to re-work the underside to get it to close.

Nice job of following the lines of the 65-6 body; it flows much better now!

That is pretty sweet. Would surely improve the underhood temperatures vs. the usual GT350 hoods. Any idea on price?

It makes a big difference, since we use 3 layers of fiberglass on y
the top and the same for the underside. This is why our hoods weigh double compared to the rest.
Cost could be around what the same hood is for the 67-68.
