To make a 34 tilt front one needs to either bolt or weld the fenders hood and grille shell into one unit and then hinge it at the lower point of the grille shell.. Lots of KW and Peterbuilt trucks have this feature so you can get some ideas from that..Also you can do a search on google for tilt fronts for more ideas..

This would be a tough one because so much of the front end of a 34 Ford is keyed off the radiator. As mentioned the fenders and hood would all have to be welded together and mounting brackets fabricated and mounted to facilitate the one piece arrangement without any attachment to the radiator. It probably would be much easier with a glass front end.

Tilting to one side or the other may not be too hard, tilting to the front or back may be pretty difficult. To the side, use the front on a pivot with a sliding rod. A one piece hood would be needed, solid sides or no sides. Scroll down this page, there are a few to look at. here ya go

Tilting the hood to the front isn't to hard, You need to do it with four bar's..

And if you want to tilt it to the back, Just buy the right hinges..

I have seen them where just the hood will lift up. SB goes up from one side, and someone makes a hinge that the hood will tilt from either side.
