    Question Aftermarket Or Custom Hoods

    What kind of hoods are available for a '96-'97 T-bird? I have a '95 SC, but I have the later year headlights to switch to. Since I have to change the hood anyway, why not snazzy it up a bit? (Unless someone has a stock '96-'97 T-bird hood in the '95 pearl color they want to part with!)

    Do you have pictures to share? Thanks.

    I didn't see any hoods he was looking for in there.

    Google Search for 1997 Thunderbird Hood turned up a couple, if you sift through the results for hood lamps, and prop rods.

    Need to go back a category and choose the V8 Tbirds instead of Super Coupe, they only show up to 95 hoods for the SC and the V8 go up to 96/97.

    I did the 97 headlight conversion as well, and used a stock style hood from VFN. They have 4 styles of 96-97 hoods: stock and raised, each in a stock mounting style or pin-on.





    Someone at the shootout snapped that last pic. Hope you don't mind me using it. If you do, I'll take it down.

    Corey is correct. 2003 Cobra 10th Anny wheels. These are the real Ford parts on a hub swap, though I think these are now available from the aftermarket in 5x4.25.

    I heard the VFN hoods tend to get distorted at the hood strut mounting points. How is yours holding up? I was interested in same hood till I heard abut that
    They don't call me "SLOWPOKE" for nothin!
