I've seen a few pictures of older cars with their hoods up. I've searched all around for one; but can't find any. Does anyone know where to get a 1940's HO car with the hood open

John, I can't say I have seen one, but doing a google search often finds what I want. So, in doing so, I found Woodland Scenics has at least one, I found it for sale on Amazon, but sure others have it too.

You may have to cut the hoods open yourself and add the engine of choice. SSLtd makes some nice car engines.

John,

This '41 Plymouth has been gracing Ed's Gas & Grocery on every layout for decades now.



It's an Alloy Forms kit, but CMW has the same car with an operable hood. Also, you might try finding a Jordan '40 Ford kit. Hope this helps.
