Hybrid Hood Sides

Louver template for hood sides.

Everybody likes louvers. Some people like really big louvers. And what if you are a '32 Ford guy, but really like the stock louvered hood side of a '32 Chevy? Use both, of course.

After deciding how many louvers to use and where to put them, a set of original '32 Chevy hood sides are sacrificed. The neat thing about the louvers on the '32 Chevy is that they could be manually opened and closed to control the flow of cooling air through the engine compartment.

Louvers welded in place. Ford hood side with Chevy louvers.

The required louvers are cut out of the Chevy hood sides and welded into a pair of "Ford" hood sides that were scratch-built in our shop by fabricator Adam Beck.
