This is kind of an old thread but I am interested also in a transkit. Btw I had an AAR Cuda and it had a warped hood. It was bright red.
forgot about this thread. has this hood been cast? have I missed it?
anyways, don't want to hijack this thread and I certainly am not calling anyone out on this, but the factory did not put a bump, budge, bend or any other word you want to come up with in the AAR hoods, there is no mention of it in any publication I have read. nor have I ever seen any documentation on this. again, to my knowledge, this "bend" in the hood was caused by opening, closing, a little too tall air cleaner or just plain old laying, or leaning in the factory just too long, they will tend to bend and warp that way also.. if anyone can come up with any information on this hood, I would love to see it. would make interesting reading. I have scanned the internet on this and have come up empty.
these are the articles I have in my personal collection that have no mention on the "bent" hoods;
Car and Driver - July '70, Car Life - July '70, Hot Rod - June '70, PHR - July '70, Road Test - June '70
here also is the AAR Cuda web site
really, I am not looking for any debate on this. this has been talked about for ever and I am looking for some documentation on these hoods.
thanks in advance,
