Can't beat the value and workmanship.

June 03, 2015
The short and long arms that are coated makes this a multiple use item. Can open both sides of the hood or only one side at a time and the whole prop is invisible. No drilling required is a big plus for this support.
Pros:
  • Rustfree And Sturdy
  • Well Made
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

Yes, one piece bar straddles, and is connected via a J-bolts to each of the radiator-to-firewall brace rods, i.e. the hood prop bar is perpedicular to the the rods and runs parallel to the firewall. The smaller hood prop arm bars hinge outboard to hold up the hood side panels and keep them off the cowl.

This Stainless Steel hood prop channel measures 20 1/4", the short rubber coated arms are 3 3/4" and the long coated rubber arms are 7 1/2" long. This fits 1928-1936 Ford and others. Polished, includes all hardware. This kit will work to do both sides of the hood, the long bar runs down the middle of hood needing only one.

These hood support props are designed for the ’28-36 Ford and with some alteration could be used for other applications. For Chevies you may want to check with Chevs of the 40’s or Classic Chevy for exact components.
