Default Hood shaker on a 65?

What ive found out with all these hours ive been putting into this car is that you can pretty much "rig" up anything..I love the look of the hood shakers, but havent seen one on any of the early model mustangs. What do you guys have for meh?

thanks for checkin out my question

I had a similar desire some number of years ago. At the time I contacted someone who what making reproductions. They seemed confident in the ability to put one of a 65/66. I can't remember who it was though.

should be piece of cake to fab up. Hard part would be making the cut in the hood look factory

Sorry guys but Shaker Hoods only belong on 69-70 Mustangs. Just my opinion.

Maybe you could get a cheap junk hood somewhere for fabrication testing/mock up.

The shaker is the best looking and coolest scoop ford made. I have put them on 67 cars but never on a 65/6. It should bolt on pretty easily but you may run into problems with the trim ring that goes on the hood. It is made to fit the contour of a 69/70 hood so you may have to make your own trim ring for the 65/6 hood. It is doable.

We put one on Jim's 66, we used virtually nothing factory because of the 408 in the car...

Regardless of some negative opinions I think it looks great. The cut was easy courtesy of a template I bought off of eBay.

I don't have a picture of it complete, couldn't find my camera that day... Jim has some pics somewhere,

We were at a car show this past weekend and a '65-'66 had a shaker on it, I didn't have our camera or I would have gotten pics. It looked funny to BTW and not in a good way.
