70 mustang mach 1 shaker hood
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, January 3, 2004 1:25 AM
Does anyone know where I can get a shaker hood scoop and hood for a 70 mustang? It is a 1/24 scale boss 429 revell kit. I am building this to look like my mustang and I got a shaker hood. I have a 1/25 scale from a 69 mustang but it does not fit. Any help would be appreciated.

You may have to graft the center of the 1/25 hood into the center of the Boss hood.It's really pretty easy.Just cut out a measured section of one hood( a little larger than the hole,obviously) and replace it with the same size piece from the other hood.

Talking the same scale, why not use the shaker scoop out of the RM Torino kit? Should have the correct air cleaner under it also. Hope it helps WOLF

The shaker scoop from the Torino is a great piece,but you'll still have to tend to the hole in the hood,and I just don't know of any 1/24 scale hoods.There was a Revell Boss 302,but I don't think it had a shaker.Maybe just a flat hood.Good luck.

Back in the early 80's when the Boss 429 kit first came out, Geoff Hitchen offered a die cast metal shaker and a plastic insert to fill the round hole in the 429 hood. It was a decent setup. I may have a couple laying around, if I can find them I would let them go.
