I took the (Mopar) hood scoop off of my son's recently aquired Chevy Luv pickup/ drag truck project and was wondering how to tell if it's a factory scoop or just a reproduction. It's a fiberglass twin snorkel thing that is two piece, top to bottom, held together with bolts. Did they part number these things somewhere that I haven't found?
Someone just drilled holes in the Chevy hood and bolted it down BACKWARDS to simulate some sort of unique cowl induction thing.

The factory twin snorkel was one piece. It's been too long since I got rid of mine, I can't say if there were part #'s on it or not. Coincidentally, I pulled a Couger scoop off a Chev Luv about 5 years ago. It had numbers cast into the underside, I'd bet Mopar did the same thing. It would have to have numbers somewhere.

The factory dual snorkels were 2 piece, since they used them on both Demons and Dart Sports which had different hood contours. There should be a pentastar cast into it somewhere. They really aren't worth anything, so I'd be glad to take it off your hands for my cuda fiberglass hood. ;D

Is this the one you're talking about? Pretty sure it's one piece.

If you look closely at that picture between the scoops you can see a seam on the lower edge of the far scoop. The part that forms the bottom of each scoop and where the front of the scoop meets the hood is a separate piece.

That's what it looks like. Dang...I was hoping they WERE worth something. ;D

I was going to put it on my Dart but I already glassed in a small cowl induction scoop...if I don't use it, qkcuda, then maybe we can work something out. I'll try and get pictures too.

Ok sorry qkcuda but I cut the brand new Z-28 wannabe cowl scoop off my Dart last night and bolted on that snorkel. I finally found the pentastar and a hardly readable part number on the underneath side. It looks great on my hood so I guess I'm gonna have to keep it. :p
