    Looks like mid 70's Comet/ Maverick. Just like ours, those cars have really gained a small but rabidly loyal following. Even in scale models they bring the same or more excessive money as a Volare kit or parts do.

    I have no idea, but I like the look. I ran with it removed for a couple weeks a long while back to see if it covering the rear vents was part of my overheating troubles. It wasn't. Plus if I took it off I'd have to weld up the holes in the hood.

    I don't like the look of all the incorrectly applied primer wearing off to the harvest gold underneath. One of these days I'll get to the repaint phase. I think a metallic dark silver with black stripes pinned with monster green.

    It does look exactly like the scoop off a Mercury Comet.

    That sure looks like it. Too bad it doesn't actually do anything on mine. I've never yet corrected the hot air intake system created by the PO.

    I wonder if you remove the aluminum inner fender panels if that would help with the hot air intake temperature?

    What would help most would be to go back in time and slap that guy before he cut the sides off the 360 intake pan and threw away all the other parts.

    Ahhhhh spare parts.......

    Just like me getting rid of my rally wheels off the 76 RR for the shiny chrome Cragar SST wheels. My Dad tossed them in the trash when I was in the Army.
