Shaker/Scoop

Hey guys... I was wondering...
How hard would it be to install a shaker from a later car than my 1967 mustang? (Trans-am or something) or, if a shaker wasn't an option, how hard would it be to find a hood with a scoop or install a scoop (Shelby style) on my existing hood?

Its a simple job but a job that can crack or give you more paint bubbling than you can dream of if done wrong.
I have done 100's over the years and if you find one post a picture and I will give you step by step instructions.

Here is something what I want, but I have no idea how to do it... I was wondering if a hood from a 67 Shelby would work...

They make similer hoods in carbon fiber. Since the odds you you finding a used hood that you could cut the scoop out is almost nil.
Check with "Year one" for a hood. They have all kinds, that where we got the hood for the one going on cover of Hot rod in August.

-FORD RAM-AIR-

If you want a SHELBY look-a-like, they are made. The SHELBY hood will not work on a regular MUSTANG.

You could then use the non-shaker RAM-AIR intake from say a 428CJ MUSTANG.

Not really. NOS or takeoffs are expensive and becoming scarce. Would you be interested in a twin-inlet type of breather.

Yeah, I'm looking for anything that "scoops" air but doesn't require removing anything essential to street driving. Also, it has to be functional... I don't want to waste my money for aesthetics.
Thanks,
Tony

See the two plastic scoops on either side? They go into the wheel well area through the apron to draw fresh air.
