1979-1986 Capri 2 1/2 Inch Cowl Induction Hood

Price: $689.00
Item Number: 79862C

 In 1979 Ford produced a hood scoop that was used on the 1979 Indy Pace car Mustang and on the 1980-1981 Cobras. H.O. Fibertrends went a step forward to create a lightweight version of these hoods. We eliminated the non functioning vents and lengthened the scoop giving the hood a racy look.

Our functional 1979-1986 Murcury Capri cowl induction fiberglass hood is made 2 1/2 inches taller than your stock steel hood and weighs approximately 22 lbs. Made from high quality hand laid fiberglass. Our hoods are made with a tough white gel-coat surface, that resists fiber strand print through. We only use the very highest quality surface coats, better than the general purpose gel-coats that’s used by most of our competitors.

Our Fiberglass hoods are engineered for strength and reliability. Instead of the cheap inserts placed into the fiberglass, which can be ripped out the hinge and latch. areas. H.O. Fibertrends takes the time to laminate blocks of aircraft quality aluminum into the fiberglass under structure. The hinge areas come predrilled and threaded. The latch is metal reinforced. So when the hood arrives its ready to be installed.

This hood comes with high quality new Sims bolts for your hinges, safety catch and hood tension spring to help make your installation quick and easy.

After our hoods come out of their molds, we remove the flashing and finish the edges for you. Filling the gapes left by bonding the top and bottom structures together, Most of the hoods you buy from our competitors rely on you or your body shop to make those repairs before painting the hood.

Pulling all this together. The hoods made by H.O. Fibertrends give you the best value in a quality well fitting body part

I have purchased a few cowl hoods for fox body cars over the years but I must say I should have purchased them from HO Fibertrends.i just purchased my first hood from them and the quality of the hood is perfect. a true bolt on hood with no problems, all lines are straight, no adjustments had to be made to car at all. the finish is remarkable, no fiber lines to sand out at all. guys at HOF keep up the good work. and thanks for a great product!!!!!
