Was it just the formula that had the twin air scoops? I am having a hard time figuring what which ones had the twin air scoops from 72-73.


Additionally, I really think I want my next one to be a 73. What kind of price range should I expect for a '73 in pretty decent shape (by pretty decent, I mean in working condition that may need a little work)? Or any advice/comments you may have

are you talking about the fibber glass formula hood.  I think that hood will fit up to 1974
a deceit driver with no matching #'s  8 to 12k   matching #'s 12 and up . 

MGR52

yes, I believe this is the fiberglass formula hood

yepp thats it .  man the pic just screams muscle   :o

It really does. I used to love the look of the hood scoop with the screaming chicken but how can you not love this?

Where can I find out more about these hoods? I have never seen one in person.

update/  70-76 is the fit.

well the early hoods worked, they let air in to the air cleaner. like the early shakers did. 
the air cleaner was like this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1970-75-FORMULA-71-72-GTO-RAM-AIR-CLEANER-400-455-BARE-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem359a73cc5eQQitemZ230224546910QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories   the hood shut over the holes.
