    Joel Rosen (Motion Performance) simply added a '67 big-block scoop (minus the front stinger) to the top of the C3 big-block hoods.

    Yep. Motion usually made their own hoods. You'll have to do the same. BTW: the '67 stinger was popular, but Motion had others. If you look at pictures of other Motion Corvettes, you'll see different hoods.

    welcome to CAC! i suggest you check out sites like eckler's and corvette central, rik's and paragon. i don't ever recall seeing an aftermarket hood like the one you are looking for.
    good luck, hope you find it.

    Joe Rosen is back in business outside of Tampa Fl. http://www.officialbaldwinmotion.com/contact.htm
    Perhaps you could contact him and ask how they made the hoods.

    Check out www.vanacorvette.com. Call them and maybe they could work with you. I've been there to their shop and they are super nice people. They gave me a tour of the place and told me to call if I needed anything in fiberglass. The are in DesAllemands, La. between New Orleans and Houma.
