I keep having to move this thing around the shop, and am thinking about selling it. It's a VFN 4-1/2" lift off hood. We had panels where the light doors are on a factory car molded to the front corners so it's one piece from the bumper to the windshield. It was a lift-off, with Dzus fasteners added along the leading- and side-edges of the hood. It was painted a mat black, and was only used about a year before we went with a mid-range intake manifold so the intake and carb would fit under a lower hood. It's still in pretty good shape, except for the mods we did for our specific applicaton.

I do have a box, so shipping might not be a big deal, but I'd still expect it to have to go freight just because of size. Heck, the box probably weighs more than the hood, but it would probably only fit in the largest of UPS/FedEx trucks. I'm figuring a couple of hundred plus shipping would be about right, but it will have to be for a special car. Note that it is NOT CP-legal. Thoughts?

In case anyone was wondering what it looks like. Here it is resting on top of our SVO. Kind of dusty, but cleans up nicely. The closeup picture shows how the headlight lid areas are closed up.

I also have a fiberglass bumper cover for the thing, never installed. It's still in the shipping box. When I got it, it seemed that building a mounting bracket for it plus the weight of the cover would end up weighing more than the OEM cover. Since no real weight savings for me, I've opted t not use it. It was $350 new, I'd let it go for ~$150 +shipping.
