Go to any car show or cruise night, or pick up just about any car magazine, and you’ll notice that trucks are a hot commodity right now. The C10 pickup is currently taking over the show circuit. Even SEMA is full of Chevy’s hauler. The once utilitarian hauler is now becoming a hot rod. But now, the GMT400 (’88 through ’98) is gaining in popularity.
The folks at Auto Metal Direct (AMD) realized the popularity of trucks, and have been offering parts for trucks for a several years now. Offerings progress, and now, AMD is offering a new, reproduction Chevy truck hood. This 4-inch cowl-induction hood is for the ’81 through ‘86 Chevy GMC C/K truck, ’87 through ‘91 Chevy GMC R/V truck, and the ’81 through ‘91 Blazer, Jimmy, and Suburban.
This new Chevy truck hood is stamped from high-quality steel on new AMD tools. Each hood features a fully finished factory-style underside with all the braces and under-structure in place. The hoods bolt on using existing hood hinges and latch. Like all AMD products, this hood arrives EDP coated to help protect against rust and corrosion.
Even if you are not building your truck into a hot rod, this new hood from Auto Metal Direct would still be a great replacement hood for your hauler. Don’t forget, AMD has a myriad of other metal restoration products to help you keep your car or truck on the road.
