    I saw a scoop like the one on the Two-lane car several months ago on ebay.

    Does anyone know where I could find one of those? (Not on ebay anymore).

    Also, what was that scoop made of, aluminum or fiberglass? And if aluminum, was it welded, or riveted?

    Thanks,
    -Brad
     
  2. Are you referring to the one on the 55 Chevy? I believe it was a hand built Aluminum peice
     
  3. Just watched the movie again. It is aluminum... Killer movie!

    I'm pretty sure that was just bent sheet aluminum - basically a "Grump Lump" scoop.

    There was a 60's Ford Dump truck that had a scoop similar to the 2 lane Blacktop car.

    The scoops are originally Ford and were used on the Big Job trucks (semis). Pontiac bought the scoops from Ford for use on the Super Duty cars.

    LOL...I should have realized that.
    Sometimes it actually happens. I bought a Ford scoop last year at a swap meet complete with the lower duct work. I paid $35. I sold it (just the scoop (later for $235 + shipping.
    Very out of character for me, usually I buy high and sell low.....

    It's been 3 years, so the price, what ever it was, is probably higher.:D

    The Sept. 2010 issue of Hot Rod Deluxe has an article on how to build one. Probably cheaper and easier to find that on Ebay.

    old thread..

    a decade or two ago I made one very similar for my ot truck, a '67 C10 with dual quad tunnel rammed BBC

    but I think to be true to the traditional you need a "Grump Lump",
    originally a cover off a piece of farm equipment if memory serves...rototiller..?

    The guy who made the scoop that was on ebay was a member here; he sent me a sketch and some dimensions.
    I used it to write that story in Hot Rod Deluxe.

    This is an old thread I know, but I had a question about making a scoop similar to this....if you were trying to build it to a 60s style, would it ever have been welded? I would assume not, thinking that rivets would be more in style at that time. Anybody who was around back then, would somebody back in the day had it welded, or would that have been pretty rare? Trying to keep my avatar falcon as close to 60s as possible.

  27. I loved that car and the movie,but am I the only one that thought that scoop was fugly?

    Granted it did look cool shaking around when James Taylor was rowing through the gears as the film was melting. HRP

    Well mine will be a little different, but I was still wondering about welding vs. riveting as far as period correct

    I'd think pop rivets,
    aluminum welding was (and is) a bit exotic for most home builders
