fiberglass cowl hood for 80-86 f150

Does anyone make a fiberglass cowl hood for the 80-86 trucks? I have seen them for the newer trucks.

Thanks for your help

Why would we want anything Z71 related on our Ford trucks? Sorry I couldn't resist, no offense. I have been thinking about getting the steel cowl hood from LMC for my 84 F150 restomod project... just having a hard time parting with the money.

The GT-500 hood in the owner installed picture from US Body is just up the road from me. It looks really nice. I have never spoke to the guy, but it really is fine.

We were just talking about a cowl hood for an '84 F150, I googled it and here I am. I notice the OP date and laughed too. I'll have to check out the looks of the GT500 hoods.

Here's a picture of my LMC steel cowl hood. It fit pretty good, but had to be massaged a little bit. You can see it on the truck in my gallery.

Sorry, but when i see that hood it just makes me think '73-'87 GM truck. Every one of those trucks anywhere near me that is still in somewhat reasonable shape has that hood- way too generic to justify.

I built a cowl hood for mine using two junkyard hoods. I bought another 80-86 truck hood and then found a car hood that I liked the profile of. Split the outer skin off of the car hood and attached it to the truck hood. Both hoods and all materials except paint ran just under $200 total, plus I have something unique.

I think the 70 Mach 1 stripes took that "generic" look away. Everyone has their own taste, or we would all be driving the same truck......
