1967 Impala SS427 Replica Hood

I hear talk about the replica domed hood for a 67 Impala SS427 but does anyone know where I can get one? Maybe the insert as well? Thanks!

I saw it 2 years ago at the HRR trade show in Indy. Pretty nice. It won an award for best new product. It is fiberglass, not steel. You cannot mix and match the bezels and hoods (original vs. Repro) as the parts doesn't fit each other really well. My friend's car was used to test fit everything. The guy making them was in Indiana as I recall. They are not cheap. The billet insert (which actually looks really nice) and hood were in the 5K range complete at that time. I don't remember the fellas name, sorry. I'll try and get more info for you and report back here.

VFN Fiberglass makes one for a 68. They might be able to make one for a 67.
