Default Where to find a hood?

Is there anywhere left to find a mach hood? MPS wants over 800 for just the hood, OEM fords I see on Ebay for 1300+, and the only repros i can find are carbon fiber for 850+.

Ive got the shaker assembly, and need to find a hood for it. why doesnt anyone repro these?? figure you guys would know better then anyone.

New old stock, aftermarket and junkyard are your choices.

Yes, I touched on that- but is there anywhere that makes a normal fiberglass aftermarket? I dont want carbon fiber, dont need it, and dont want to pay twice as much for it.

Just did some checking. Found an old thread on Mach1Registry wherein somebody mentioned buying a decent quality fiberglass hood through RockAuto.

Sure enough, they have one for $314

http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,ca...for%2BKEYSTONE

I called RockAuto. They are new reproductions.

I hope you have the rubber tray that goes around the shaker. Ford stopped making it and the last time I priced one, it was $300 from Ford.

Fortunately, my shaker tray is in perfect condition. I clean it and use protectant on the top and bottom every week.

That $180 tray on Ebay is headlined as new OEM, but the description says USED.
