Default 68-69 motion chevelle hood.

I was just looking through an old musclecars mag(1984) that has an article on a 1969 phase 3 chevelle. although it states that the car is a 69 it has all 68 trim. my question is on the hood though. it appears to be a ss hood that was molded with a stinger scoop on it. it still retains the ss louvers. I am wondering who made motions hoods and if a hood like this is still available? thank you mike

Just like the green 1970 Motion Chevelle, I beleive this one was just a stock steel hood with the other part grafted on. I do not beleive anyone ever produced this hood.

Motion switched over to full size fiberglass hoods stingray/L-88 type on the '69 chevelle.
Because of the open front, the scoop kinda wanted to depart from the metal hood to which it was attached.------ Which could put you in a state of [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img] in a hurry.-------- [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

that looks to be 1 heck of a graft. this is the only hood like this I have ever seen. does anyone know who owns this car now? I called legendary from penn. and ordered a catalog but never received it. with all the motion fiberglass sold its hard to beleive that they would take the time to do such a good graft.

rat tuned,
Your right it was a good, but time consuming graft, plus they destroyed the hood. That was another reason for going to a full fiberglass hood---on a new Motion car purchase , there was an exchange for original equipment[hood]-----killed 2 birds with 1 stone ---you got a nice hood the dealer got a new hood---JoeG [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I am not aware of any of the Baldwin Motion Chevelles coming with full fiberglass hoods. The fiberglass is just like the other "Phase III" equipment that Joel sold. It is another manufacturer's product that he re-badges.

If there was such an exchange for a hood, it would certainly be used to graft another scoop. Similar to a core fee on a re-built part.

You will not get a catalog from Legendary since their current one is still being updated by a guy who is VERY slow.

pxtx,
I'm here to tell you there was a full fiberglass Stinger Hood 68/69 Chevelle part#17404--Motion Performance Catalog--1969.---Part of a PhaseIII package was a cold-air package--a stingray scooped fiberglass hood,at least on my Chevelle, which was used as an exchange for the factory steel hood.---I'm given you my experience with Motion--I was there in 1969.---JoeG---- [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/scholar.gif[/img]------- [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beers.gif[/img]

I believe the green 1970 Motion LS6 Chevelle has a full glass L88 style hood on it.
JoeG, did your car look like the brown 69 Motion Chevelle Ertl diecast with stinger hood and white top?

Fastglass (Legendary) sold a glass, later style L-88 hood, for the 68-69 & 70-72 Chevelles. I think they still have the 68-69 in their catalog.
