I've got a 1931 Ford fender-less coupe with a mini-channel onto a 1932 frame with a 1932 grill. By my mock-up, I need a 34-1/4" hood top (measurement down center hinge), so I'm looking at having Rootlieb make me a custom hood. Rootlieb sells both a 1932 hood, and a 1930/31 hood. The 1930/31 hood has a little flat area that extends 2-1/4" below the beltline, where as the 1932 hood terminates at the beltline. Also, the 1932 hood has longer and more plentiful louvers. I plan to louver the top. I plan to run with open hood sides with leather belt straps in the summer and at 1/8-mile drag strip, and full hood in the winter and for 1/2-mile and 1-mile events. It is a semi-traditional rod with dull paint and several sets of wheels and tires to let me get lost in the 50s or early 60s. I will run rams-horn exhaust manifolds so that I can close the hood when I want to. So, here are my questions: 1) 1930/31 hood or 1932 hood on my '31? 2) on the hood top: 4 rows of louvers or 6 rows? (I do plan eventually to run a louvered trunk lid.) -Please post pics of any cars to support your recommendation/opinion. Thanks!
