NACA NASA Hood For Sale SALE PENDING


I have an A body hood for sale. Call it NACA, call it NASA, call it whatever you want. There is much debate on it!

The hood is nice and solid. There is some areas with the paint missing and of course surface rust but the metal is solid. I can try to get some pics on here later.  I don't know a lot about them but I know some have the vents at the back, some don't. This one has no vents.

I would like to get $350 for it.

I bought this hood many years ago for a friend who lives far away. Unfortunately, he has never come through on this deal for me and it's time to wipe the slate clean and start fresh!

RE: NACA NASA Hood For Sale


I am very disappointed Carl, You been holding out on that one. Sounds like a 75 hood which seemed to be the most plentiful. Your price is good. Maybe Pascal will come and get it.

I never said anything because I had hopes my friend from the deep south would come through for me. Another year has passed and it's time to get on with this whole deal. I've had to move this thing to high ground 3 times to keep it from flooding and I said in the spring of 2011 that I would not do that again!

I'll get some pics of it up later today.

Thats a big hood, I once transported one on the roof of my Suburban and it is actually wider than the Truck ! Getting it to Toronto is the only thing stopping me at this point from saying Yes.

Boy Carl, does the underside of your hood ever have me curious. I'm trying to figure out if that is shadowing or if the supports have been cut.

 Nothing looks cut. Where do you mean? I can run and grab more shots of it.

Must be shadowing on that underside photo. It's in very good condition, where did you pick it from?

I'll take it Carl as it is in better shape than mine ! Consider it sold ! Now I have to figure out a way to get it home, I wonder if it would fit in the box of my S15 GMC SONOMA (6 feet box) ? The plates runs out the 10th of Jan as well ???

Good luck on fitting it in the Sonoma, as I posted above the hood is wider than my Suburban. I had one tied to the roof rack and it was overhanging on both sides. You should be able to angle it with some overhang on one side. Better tie it down good.

take a couple of 6' 2 x 4 's with you,  lay them out over the passenger side of the box to support the hood and beat on your truck .

The hood made it home safe, it was nice to see Carl and what a beautiful sunny day ie. +5 degrees, for a country drive. The hood fitted real good in my little GMC truck biggrin I really like Carl's 66 Grande Parisienne, now I have to persuade him to take me for a drive once he's got the 4 speed installed in it ... aww

 Just like I said Pascal, good pick up that's for sure, now grab Robert's 4dr Grand Am and put that hood to good use smile

Sold, paid for, loaded, whatever. The hood has gone to it's new home!

Glad that worked out perfect Pascal. And yes, what a gorgeous day. Wish I was semi retired like some guys.....

I'm "fully" retired, but seem to have a "full" time job in the garage w/52 & a "FULL" Honey do list that never ends.
