    glass hood for f body

    I emailed Glasstek asking if they were ever going to make a fiberglass hood for our cars. Their response:


    do you think you will be making a flat bolt on hood for the 76-79 plymouth volare dodge aspen?
    From: Robert mortensen <glasstek@att.net>

    Sorry no plans at this time, If someone where to bring us a perfect steel hood we would put it on our list of molds to do.

    Thanks

    I`m too far away to take a hood over there or I would get the ball rolling.

    I searched Craigslist and don`t see it. I do know that US body makes them. I heard that the quality was not the best.

    I just checked when the hoods i have were made.They were made in 1997.I bought the one I have for sale in 2003.So that hood was sitting around at u.s body for six years.Seems they dont sell many of them.Time really goes fast,didnt think i had them that long lol.

    I was looking for a bolt on hinge hood, the heavier one. I want to put a hole in the center for the tunnel ram.
