  • FIBERGLASS HOOD

    Does anyone know of any company or person who produces fiberglass hoods for a 64 Daytona body?
    THANKS

    Paul, I doubt anyone has made such a thing when NOS hoods are still to be had.

    Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe
    1957 President two door

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      You also might want to contact Rene Harger.
      He has a great 'glass connection and might build you a hood..
      Hope the info helps.

            If nothing pans out, you can always try to pull a mold yourself. Create a new product!

                I know a guy building a '55 C body drag car. He made his own lightweight fiberglass body panels by using the steel panels as a mold. While not for a show car, they work perfect for his purpose.

                  This is off topic Matthew but I just want to tell you how much I enjoyed your R2 Lark article in Turning Wheels! I read it this evening.

                    Thanks Michael. I'm sure it made you smile, being that you have a nearly identical car in your garage...

                      Yes. Mine has never been restored but is a nice driver. Will you be at the FL State Meet meet in October?

                        Don't count on it Michael. But then again, ya never know... We might make the Asheville meet. Nothing is set in stone on that one, either.

                          maybe I ought to put some of my NAVY skills to the test- eh?
                          They sent me to a month-long "Advanced Composite Repair School" a few years ago.
                          And it's a good thing, too- 'cuz now I own a '58 Packard!!! [:0]

                            If you really want to lose some weight, you should have it and any other panels done in carbon fiber. It will be expensive, but will weigh a lot less than fiber glass.
