65 Belvedere

hey guys just picked up a solid 65 Plymouth Belvedere, I want to give this car a really cool look. Should i go with a shaker style hood? I was also thinking cowl induction hood would look sweet because the car is so square and long. Anyone know where i can find fiberglass body parts? Thanks for any advice.

A "shaker" hood on a Belvedere? Never seen one!
What are you putting in it for power?

If it were mine I'd do a super stock clone with either a 426/440 wedge and the super stock scoop. However, if you can afford it the ultimate would be a Super Stock Hemi clone.

I took a look at your site Centerline, and I notice that....
I've been to it before!!!!!!
Don't know how I got there, what link, etc... but I remember the 41 Chevy Coupe for sure!

I think the shaker may look strange for what I'm accustomed to, as I would think a Hemi style scoop would be the way to go, but everybody is different. I almost bought a Jensen Interceptor last year, I was going to toss a fairly beefy 440 2X4bbl engine I had into it, and I wanted to conceal the tunnel ram with a 5" cowl style hood. My buddies thought I was crazy.

Post a couple pics if you can, Chevellesrule71 ??!

You need one of those big square flat type hood scoops with the shallow opening at the front and a 426 Max Wedge with a crossram and 2 X4's , some Radirs and pie crust slicks

wow, a Belv.

I remember my auto-teacher had one. Unique how it had like little vent windows in the back that rolled down. He had a Dodge 440 sitting between the frame rails, not ready to run or anything...floors were all rotted out, needed complete rewiring, but other than that, the body looked really decent. I considered picking up that car, but never ended up doing it.

I'd be interested to see what you come up with.
