Wanted: scoop pics for 68coupe with turn signal hood

Iím trying to figure out a replacement for what I have.
Need help from the brain trust.

Please post picture of what ever you have.... and with what kind of scoop it is.
Pics of the internet are difficult to interpret.

Ive already got a hole in hood from PO, so that ship has sailed. No lectures.

This is a turn signal hood so if anybody has examples, even better.

Iím do like a more sporty racy look.

Not interested in teardrop/thunderbolt.

Maybe a boss 429, but it may be too big

Help sincerely appreciated.
Here is what Iím replacing.
A big homemade monstrosity.

When I had a 68 GT Coupe back in the 80's I installed a hood scoop from a Mustang II Cobra II. If you would like measurements of the Cobra II hood scoop I can get them for you, I have a spare one in my garage. Here is a link to a better pic of what the scoop looks like.

While I’m not sure I’ve seen one on a deluxe hood before, I would expect a Cobra Jet scoop to go with it like peas and carrots.

I like the 69 mach 1 scoop too..
Iíd give my right or left nard to have this
Anybody know if someone makes a small style aftermarket base that will adapt over to a shaker top?
I know SCOTT drake makes the shaker assemblies, but I donít like the big ole factory bases.

I love a cool aftermarket base, that adapts over to a CJ Shaker.
This would be best case scenario.

Iím talking about a regular, fixed Cobra Jet scoop. I think itíd look good and be a lot less trouble than a shaker.

Yea, for sure. I knew what you were talking about.
I was commenting about the shaker being best case.

The CJ Fixed scoop is certainly a very possible if not likely candidates.

Was just looking for other options than might be a little more aggressive looking.

A buddy in high school put the shaker assembly from a Torino on his '68 coupe. The Torino shaker is longer but the trim ring that mounts to the hood is for a flat panel so it works on '68. It looked great on the car. This was back in '79 when you could pick these up for $200 or less.

Iím not so crazy about a scoop on a turn signal hood. It looks overly busy up there to my eye. I prefer it with non turn signal hood. But since you have it that way...definitely go with the 68-70 style scoop, and get rid of that breadbox you got on there!

Yes, bread box has to go.

I kinda like the breadbox... but only because it's unique. I can't say it looks good to me
