It was necessary to fabricate a new hood for GS#004 (the existing hood was a repro '63 Nassau type, not the desired '64 Sebring type). GS#004's hood at 1964 Sebring was unique: as period photos show, it differed from some of the other Grand Sports by having four (instead of five) louvers per front opening. Notice that the new hood is nearly translucent due to very thin fiberglass & clear gelcoat.

Period 1964 photographs were used during the re-construction of the new hood to attend to the smallest of authentic details, including exact rivet placement, fiberglass cloth seams and the relative roughness of the underhood finish.
