A65 and 66 corvette has a forward tilt hood for the latch very simple and it works,- I am using a 1984 corvette tilt front pivot latches and hood release Because i already have it and i need the tilt for the front ,also i am useing electric -hydrolic , tilt cylinders for power trim from a 35 hr mercury outboard because i have a all metal front ,you can use an electric avalible on e bay since yours is fiberglass as far as braces it wont take much for glass ,just dont get it to rigid might cause cracks ,mine is a 53 chevy but should be close ,Hope this helps
