You might start searching the internet for one, but I suspect you won't find one, so you probably have two other choices...

1- Make a tilt front by bolting your front sheetmetal together, then build a simple frame inside with hingepoints.

2- Find a nearby fiberglass producer who can pull a quick mold off of your car, that can be used to produce a part.....

...or simply lay up a 'glass shell over your front sheetmetal by bolting it together with the hood-to-fender gaps closed up an overall amount of about 1/4 to 3/8 inch. That would make it narrow enough to make up for the thickness of the 'glass piece made over it. You may have to unbolt the parts inside the 'glass shell to get them out.
