was thinking of adding a boss or cobra style hood scoop to my 78
wondering what you guys are using for scoops on the 78-79 hoods be it functional or just for looks
and can you post a pic what you are using


did a search and kept coming up with member Scoop

Her's what i did to my 78 bronco. Bought a fiberglass scoop off the internet, and bonded it to my hood, it's functional, still trying to figure how to make a seal for it under the hood.

those are cool. thanks for posting
I really like the t bird one
now to find at bird hood to chop up!

I did one on another car and installed the metal flange under the hood opening and welded it in that way
I was able to finish pretty much without filler,but that was a smaller scoop and hood

I am thinking about the bolt on ones in that NPD sells currently

thinking the boss 429 or the mach 1,but the mach on may be too long

I see they also list a steel cowl hood for 80-86 bronco as well

I think I prefer a bolt on as it is easier,and I am lazy
but a good blend in one can look a whole lot better
the cowl one looks good too,,but I don't think I want a cowl hood, seems like everyone at local car shows has a cowl hood on their car or truck,too common around me


I have seen a lot of stupid looking hood decorations over the years and I do not want to be THAT guy
want it to look like something that could have come from the factory

I always like the scoop Crazed put on his street truck. simple style would work on a 78/9 easy enough... but I'll be damned if I can find a pic of it tonight. must be 4/20. :shrug

they look awesome

I also thought some new stang cobra ones too,or even the dodge ram truck hood bulge


I think I am too lazy though,not enough hrs in a day to drill holes to bolt one on,let alone 50 hrs to graft the grabbers one

looks awesome and you now have something no one else has

Andy Frear runs a scoop. Although it's not a 78/79, & doesn't even look much like an 89 anymore either.





This guy used part of a wheel barrow for a cowl induction scoop on his Early Bronco. It looks like it could have been run facing forward as well.

very creative and cheap,i love to repurpose things


first time I have seen used as a hood scoop


I have seen a bunch of times for firewalls on an engine swap scenario
