    Hi All, new here -

    What were the raised hood choices available during the years that Mavericks were produced, and what year(s) were those particular hoods available?

    I ask, as I'm thinking of a Maverick drag car build with my brother, the intake manifold might be on the tall side and hinder carb clearance, and the series we'd run requires a factory available hood of some sort.

    Thanks!

    All factory hoods are the same height and offer the same clearance.

    You can look into a drop base air cleaner.

    Ron Morris Performance RMP sells a slick adjustable motor mount for early mustangs. I've used em on several cars. Perfect for high powered SBF 289 to 351 conversions. I'm planning on using them in my Maverick, eventually..

    lowers the motor about 1.5 inches, and back about 2.75 inches, for improved weight bias
