Does anyone know where i can get a tear drop cowl hood for my 63 galaxie that does not require hood pins?
You can order the Crites Restoration hood drilled and tapped for the factory hinges and latch. Very nice piece. You don't need hood pins, but you do need to swap out the hinge springs for a pair that aren't quite so stiff when you go with the fiberglass hood.

The hood pins are a saftey device. If you race the car or are running high speeds, Then you should have them. My Crites hood for normal highway speeds is just fine, The reason I have the pins is ounce in a while I like to hear the old Gal roar. It is the same reason you always roll up the windows at speeds over 120 mph ( head liner comes down) So if you go fast use the pins. My 2 cents.
