Has anyone put a shaker scoop on a 66 mustang?

The previous owner put a new reproduction hood on it and installed a new carb and intake. They didn't trim the stud on the top of the carb so it dented the new hood. They thought they trimmed it off enough, but it has wore a hole through the hood. I had planned to add a GT scoop, but I thought a shaker would be unigue and different. I quess I could just weld the hole shut.

YES! I have a 65 fastback w/ a shaker hood. It's not that hard (assuming you can do yourself) and it looks great!  :)  I will try to load a picture of it once I learn this site.

It is do-able, but not cost justifiable. I did the work myself, thera re a few things to consider.

I'm Packing a windsor 408, so my deck height is litle high, so I have t cut the fiberglass air cleaner down to size.
You may find a conflict with the hood braces, I cut into them during mockup. Then had to relocate then further back.
I have a 4 degree rear slope to the engine, getting the shaker level, centered, and to fit under the hood was a a challange.

I'm out of paint now and got the engine running yesterday, I should have the hood on 'sometime' in the future. email if you have specific questions. RikFrey@comcast.net

Thanks, It looks good. My project is at a standstill until some family matters get cleared up. It's sitting on jack stands patiently waiting on me to come back. I have a 302 in mine, I've looked at after market scoops and some are affordable, but I want to finish the back half of the car before I go back to the front. Thanks again and keep us posted on your project.
