Car manufacturers learned early on that the hood was more than a lid for the engine compartment; it soon became a canvas for car stylists to express themselves, and some of their best work appeared on the classic and muscle cars of the 50s, 60s and 70s. But by now the hood on your classic has endured decades of exposure and is probably rusted, dinged and dented. Don't waste a lot of time and money trying to bring your original hood back to life, get an authentic reproduction hood from Goodmark to make your baby beautiful again.
Restoring cars isn't just a business for the people at Goodmark, they're also car enthusiasts and restorers just like you, and they wouldn't make anything they wouldn't install on their own cars or trucks. Each hood is CAD/CAM designed to make sure it exactly replicates the original part, and then it's manufactured with the most modern tooling. Each design is test fit to make sure it looks and fits perfectly. Many Goodmark parts have been approved by the manufacturers of the original equipment and are licensed to be sold as genuine replacement parts.
Goodmark knows how important hoods are to the identity of classic and muscle cars, so they've faithfully replicated the power bulges, scoops, inserts, ornaments and emblems that distinguished these panels. You can even upgrade your vehicle with a cowl induction hood, complete with air cleaner plenum, which your car never came with. Goodmark has authentically reproduced steel hoods made to the exact gauge and dimensions, as well as fiberglass hoods with steel support frames for the Shelbys and Oldsmobiles that were so equipped.
Besides the hood itself, Goodmark also has all the supporting parts that make the difference between a so-so car and a 100% concours restoration. Look to Goodmark for reproduction hinges and springs, hood bumpers and seals, moldings and emblems, insulation pads and latches, and every form of ornamentation. Goodmark parts will pass muster with show judges and knowledgeable admirers alike.
Goodmark® was founded in 1991 by car enthusiasts, restorers and collectors just like you. They recognized that there was a need for quality restoration parts, especially sheet metal parts, if the restoration of our beloved American classics was to continue. Since that time, Goodmark has created a complete line of sheet metal, trim parts, and accessories for popular cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and for previously difficult to restore cars like the Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda. Goodmark uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing) software and modern tooling and manufacturing techniques to create parts that are identical to factory original for perfect fit and finish. Quality parts tooled and manufactured by Goodmark are enabling many more American classic and muscle cars to return to the road, looking just as fine as the day they rolled off the assembly line.
