Ok, down the road when I get ready to paint the 1970 Sports roof, I was thinking about putting / adding the scoops on the side like the 69 Mach1, It is a resto mod and I allways thought that the scoops on the side was very good looking. Give me your thoughts.

Tiggermom thinks that it would be cool, help me!!!

Try using Photoshop (or similar) to combine the upper '69 body with the front and lower side of a '70. Personally, I like the side scoop on the '69 fastbacks and think it would look good.

I have always like the side scoops on the 69 fastback as well. I would try to find a donor car to get the inner sheet metal piecese from. It would make the job alot easier.

If the car has it's original panels then I would leave it alone but if the panels have been patched then I would add the scoops.

Personally, I think the scoops make that car! Since you are doing a restomod and originality isn't an issue, then I can't see there would be much of a downside. Even if you sell the car you will be selling a restomod so the market of potential owners probably won't be worried about originality.
If you like it...do it.

I am a huge fan of the scoops on a 69. Be prepared to deal with the quarter windows being in the way of the install though. If you need some pm me I have a line on some.

David, I'll take some pics for you in the morning, since I have the entire interior of the '69 gutted right now. There's some bracets in there that hold it all together.

It would look very cool, IMHO. I love the scoops of the '69, and the front scoops of the '70. I contemplated doing the front of my '69 like a '70.
