    Winter is starting early here in Minnesota, the area north of me got 3 to 6 inches of snow yesterday. My main winter car project with the Coronet is purchasing a 67 3.5 inch hemi hood scoop from GlassTek and installing it on my steel hood. Looking for opinions on the color of the scoop. Is a white scoop to match the roof and stripe too much? I going for a retro super stock race car look. I'm a little concerned the white scoop will look a little cheesy. Red would be the safe choice and I'm sure would look great. Thanks!

    Satin black or red body color.

      Okay, you asked. Your car is gorgeous and has enough white, I would do the scoop in red.
      Now if I were doing it, I would get a hinged glass hood to put the scoop on ( or just a hood with scoop built on) and save the steel hood. I've just recently noticed what people are asking for nice hoods lately. Jmo.
      I wish I hadn't cut up my 62 hood for a scoop, I should have bought a glass one.

        I agree with 33 IMP on not cutting up your original hood.

        If you want the retro racer look, then satin black would be more of the way to go. White would be flashier, and red would be the safe route.

          I would vote for the red also. I purchased another hood that already had the RO scoop and had everything painted to match. Just my 2 cents. hood.jpg

            DON'T cut up your original hood! You'll be sorry.
            Red!
            Beautiful car!

                Red and bolt her down tight. Those sheet metal screws do not work. Nice car. Dave

                  Thanks guys, red it is. I agree on cutting up the steel hood, Going to check what shipping would be on a glass bolt on hood.

                  I agree, don't cut the original hood. I wish that my hood wasn't cut.

                    I don't know who your intended source for the hood is, but if it were me, I would turn a 500 mile trip into a mini- vacation and pick it up in person. Inspection, no shipping damage, no return hassles, no complaints.

                      Yes, I agree, that or have Spee-Dee Delivery pick it up and have them check it out. Any of you midwest guys that don't know about Spee-Dee out of St. Cloud MN is a good choice if shipping a rear end, engine block or heads. One of the cheapest shipper in the Midwest.

                          Red! White will look bad.

                              You’ve made the right choice - too much white would look a bit cheesy on a sweet ride like that. You have to go with the red bro. Keep us posted with the pics. My family has been complaining that they haven’t had any fall - winter is on its way early. Cover up!

                                Red scoop will look good, a set of 8 velocity stacks would look better.

                                  This is the coldest, wettest Fall I can remember. I feel sorry for the golf courses and bike/motorcycle shops. This cold weather really hurt their bottom line.
