It’s news that Pontiac F-body fans and restorers have been waiting for: Reproduction hoods are now available for the 1977 – ’81 Firebird and Trans Am. Recently released by Ames Performance Engineering, there are two variations available. They are made of steel and arrive painted black. Part number FD109D (costing $409) is the solid flat hood for non-Turbo powered Firebirds, while part number FD109F (costing $439) applies to Trans Am editions with a correct shaker cutout. Each hood, regardless of application, features the correct support bracing and underside structural design that matches the original factory strength and rigidity; they will need to be blocked and primed prior to final painting. These hoods are shipped via commercial truck freight and must be delivered to a commercial address.
