Mustang by Classic Design Concepts
Taking retro into the new millenium
The whole black portion above is a plastic insert. With
intake popping through. This is the "Shaker hood" system.
CDC had a fully
decked out "Shaker" Mustang. It was equipped with their new
functional Shaker hood system.
The neat thing
about this system is the way Classic was able to use many of the stock
parts including a stock hood.
Normally aspirated version. Supercharged version also
You can see
above that the system is piped into an inverted stock air box, complete
with stock air silencer being used as part of the ram air setup. There
is a rubber boot with drainage to let the water drain out for when you
drive in the wet. There is also a version that fits a supercharger system.
The system looked like a factory option.

The cool part is that when
you cut your hood, you don't need to be a certified body working tech.
CDC includes an entire hood plastic insert molded in black. This means
no painting and if you messup, it covers the mistakes :-)
The retro interior looked
nice. Seats reminded us of our 68 we had :-)
Small touches like retro markings for the speedo numbers, etc.. Though
our pic here is a little out of focus you can stll see the numbers there.
This also reminded us of our 68 :-)
