Can You Identify These Hood Scoops?

Think you know your cars? Prove it!


Think you know your cars? Then try the below automotive puzzle highlighting the hoods of vehicles that are currently listed on AutoHunter.

Perhaps we associate engine air intakes with the muscle car era, but they were not uncommon in the 1950s, as evidenced by the Ford Thunderbird and others. When it comes to drag racing and factory offerings, it seems the 1961 Super Duty Pontiac was the first to air induction. Would you believe it was a Ford truck scoop given a Pontiac part number? Racer Arnie Beswick is the one who initiated the whole thing. Pontiac also was the first to bring air induction to the street with an accessory system for Tri-Power GTOs.

Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.


  1. Lead in drawing is a 69 Roadrunner 440-6 barrel. That’s a red 97 Camaro SS (anniversary edition from the paint job). Black GTO hood, hood scoop was the same from 65-67. Having trouble pinning down the year on the third one around 92 or so, Camaro for sure though. Last one is from a 68 or 69 Chevelle SS 396.
