Mach 1 NACA Hood for Sale
#1
I have a hood from a 73 mach 1, its a NACA hood. It does not have a rust issues but it does appear to have a little body filler.
I don't think I can ship this, I am near Augusta GA if you are interested in it.
Cash or trade
PM me a cash offer or I am willing to trade for 429/460 related parts for a 73 (frame to mount towers, headers, any condition 9inch rear end etc etc), black interior parts (everything but carpet needed), or whatever you might have.

That's had several paint jobs but looks to be in good shape. Good luck with the sale.

Thanks RacerX. I think its a good hood, I don't think the bondo is that deep and I surprisingly don't see any rust.

Hey,
Just a note about what the hood is called NACA. I should be NASA, National Aeronautics & Space Administration. NASA did the wind tunnel development for the shape used for the air inlets to establish the optimum air intake. Ford use it on this hood and the 84 - 86 SVO.
The instructor at our local Tech College Auto class is also a Bonneville racer. He runs a Mustang 2 body with a destroked GM engine that I think under 250 CI. He has joined the 200 mph class with it.
He had been running one of the scoops like you see on the Pro Street and Pro drag cars up high that is said to pick up more air. He has a friend that works in the wind tunnel for Ford in Atlanta he suggested he use the NASA design and get rid of the tall hood scoop. So he built a new hood and made his ram air using the NASA design. He took both hoods on his next run to Bonneville. He made several runs with the old hood and got everything dialed in. Car has electronic fuel injection that you program using lap top. He comes in changes the hood and makes another pass. The NASA hood scoop pulled in so much more air he melted several pistons due to fuel mix being lean. The hood does work just for reference.
I think they look mean,
David

I stripped it hood back a bit more to see what was under the bondo, no holes are rust. Looks like there are some little dings like maybe it had hail damage. This is a solid hood if someone wants to take the time with it.

There's been a lot of discussion about it, and this VMF thread does a good job of 'splaining:

I guess you could say both NACA and NASA are correct, with NACA being a little "more correct" than NASA.

Check it for a Pablo Picasso signature before you sell it, that sure looks like one of his rare abstract pieces he did later in life, he was around until 1973. In any case looks like a straight hood, good luck with the sale. Wink
