Re: Hickey Enterprises Hood

I remember a truck running around my home town about 20 years ago with a hood that resembled that one.

To each his own, but I thought the stock hood looked a lot better.

*EDIT* If I'm not mistaken, JC Whitney used to have something like that in their old catalogs.

Yes. They were designed by Vic Hickey to be used on his desert racers. The lower profile allowed better visibility

Re: Hickey Enterprises Hood

If I didn't want to go with a cowl hood I'd think I'd actually want one of those on my truck

Re: Hickey Enterprises Hood

Wasn't that also the beginings of aerodynamics in the offroad desert racing world?

Re: Hickey Enterprises Hood

I think it would be great if it was that hood mixed with the dual cowl hood at LMC
