Gold pans hanging down look cool! But you might take it out on a speed bump.

How about drag shocks for the front and some "skinnies" instead.

SCOOP'S GOOD.
I'd agree with Steve and Alex,Alex on the 67 shelby scoop,they look real cool.
And Steve on the pans hanging to low.
Get some lift me up shocks for the front.They work and are alot of fun too.

OK SCOOPE it is, I really like the T Bolt style, good air lotsa room. GT 500 is cool too but poor air position, less clearance. COWell style uglee Cheby style.

I'd vote in this order if looks was the deciding factor:

#1: 67 Shelby style hood.
#2: Cowl-style hood (i.e. Kid Vishus' hood).
#3: Mach I style hood.
#4: BOSS '9 style hood.
#5: T-bolt style hood.

Yes, # 1 style doesn't provide the amount of underhood room as #2, #4 or #5, but IT DOES LOOK KILLER!

I'd also say that the #2 hood would likely get you better air than the T-bolt style.

Just my 2 cents,
Ryan

A buddy of mine had the teardrop hood on his 65 mustang.It looks great!Have you got a good pan on your motor though.If not it might be a better idea to get a good pan,we all know how those FE's love their oil

Even though I really like my "chebie" hood, I would put the oil pan on your car.

Hey Glen,
I've seen two sizes of T-bolt bubble hoods; a smaller one and a standard (large) size one.
You may want to look at both before you decide.

I opted for the Tear Drop hood on the Fastback as I always admired the early/mid 60s factory racing Galaxies, T-bolts, Falcons, and Mustangs. In your case, I suggest a 68 1/2 Cobra-Jet style hood as it was the factory racing type used on your style body. One problem with the tear drop (and probably any cowl induction type hood) is that the engine bay heat rolls out the rear and directly into the cowl vents in front of the windshield. If you open the fresh air underdash vents in the summer, only real hot air comes out! As for the pan, an alternative could be the Milodon 8 qt pan. I haven't had any problems with clearance during street driving.

If the carb is sealed to the hood, that problem can probably be greatly minimalized. But I'm just guessing here.

Those tear drop scoops look a whole lot different on a 67-68 car.
I would find one of those first and have a look.
They actually seem out of place on a 67-68.

The 681/2 style hood scoop won't gain you a whole lot of extra clearance.It depends on what your needs are.There is a picture of a 68 with a teardrop hood on Crites Restorations site but the car is such a light colour you can hardly see it.It will probably depend on your age and how much of a traditionalist you are as to what looks right on what.

My vote is for the TEAR DROP and a deep sump pan. Nothing looks better to me than this combination coming towards you with low slung header tubes next to the sump.

The idea of the TEAR DROP (other than hood clearance for the high riser 427) was to release heated air out of the rear of the scoop. Of course, fresh air was introduced from the grille area by tubing and an enclosed air cleaner assembly.

In 1967, FORD campaigned I think three fastback Mustangs with the 427 TP. They were usually match raced against Hemi-Cudas. I think they had tear drops. Looked good to me...

------------------
I am looking for information concerning factory performance/speed parts used on the MEL (Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln) Engine Series (383-410-430-462) from 1958 thru 1968.
