1970 Monte Carlo custom L88 hood

Recommended Posts

The 1968 Baldwin Motion hood is in a mold box and awaiting silicon molding. But that won’t happen until Wednesday night. In the meantime, since I will be pouring silicone, I figured I would pop out another custom hood for casting.  As you may have guessed from the title, it’s a hood for a First Generation Monte Carlo.  Baldwin Motion never offered the Monte Carlo as a package in their Phase III line up, but  I have always wanted to build a “what if“. The L88 hood was and natural choice for me since that’s what they put on the 1970 Chevelle. Plus the Monte Carlo has such long hood, the could be made longer, as on the 1973 and later Corvettes.

I would also like to put the 1969 Camaro cowl induction hood on a Monte Carlo hood. It too will need a little lengthening.
