Windshield length cowl hood
 
Does any one know of a company or even seen one for the classic mustangs I love the look and clearance of them I have one on my fox body but I can't seem to see or find any for my 68 Mustang my stock hood wont clear with my new engine and I don't want to cut it up

you could get a fiber hood and add this
Catalog > SCOOPS > Cowl Scoops

or goodmark makes the scoop in steel
Goodmark Steel Cowl Induction Hood Scoops SCOOP03 - SummitRacing.com

Goodmark Steel Cowl Induction Hood Scoops - SummitRacing.com

and cut up another hood

Just a old guys trick is to put some spacers between the hinge and the hood to raise the back of the hood a bit to clear the engine..Easy to do and easily reversed if needed..
