Been working on trying to get this original empi hood for the last 4-5 years and my patience paid off again when the owner contacted me yesterday and asked if I was still interested in the hood.  Gave me a smoking deal on it.

Seems EVERYONE didnít know what was in the box in this guys swapace and Iíve  been watching them pass it by without picking it up and pulling whatever it was inside it out to see so I walk over out of curiosity and it turns out to be an NOS empi dash pad and the box had a sticky note on it for $5 soooooo I had to pay full price since I didnít want to low ball the poor guy LOL

Found this one Facebook Marketplace. The manifold fits a 351 Windsor Ford. And the IDA`s are Spanish. Everything is new. My plan is to keep one pair of carbs, and sell the rest off.
