  • Hawk hood support rod

    I am looking for the hood support rod for my 64 GT with A/C..

    I believe the part number to be 154-6044-P...and is different than the rod for a non A/C unit because of the condenser unit..

    Any leads will be appreciated..

    Thanks

    Make that 2, 'cause mine needs exactly the same thing. Looked for one at Omaha last year but no luck. Also need the hood latch for the same car. Mine is missing the little push thing that releases the secondary catch. Can send pic if you need it.

        I needed one, too, so I ordered the blueprint. It IS different, and I never did get one made. I just use a regular rod and completely remove it from the engine compartment every time. It won't snap down. A real pain. Someday I'll get to it. I think it was actually made by modifying a regular one. The blueprint is vague about one or two things and I seem to recall that I wasn't able to figure out how the rod used with AC cars would be any better than the regular rod.

        Here is a link to a rendering I did of what it looks like: http://community.webshots.com/myphot...ecurity=CFjgXW
