I think they were good looking. And yeah I believe they did have the turn signal indicators in them. Pretty cool, what did you have to give?

Ps I'd leave the hood pins. As the "look" you're going for would of definitely had hood pins.

Hey JTS, The guy wanted $400 and I got it for $375.  I also confirmed that the domes do house the turn signals, pretty cool. They actually sell the wire harness for $42 but the plastic lenses is where it gets expensive, if you can find them.

However, after a search I found the same information JTS came across.  Basically every hood with some kind of bulge was categorized as a power dome hood.  Even a simple cowl induction hood or the hood used on many Dodge Challengers.  I thought you were originally referring to the rare hood with the tear drop shaped bulge that came on a few Galaxie 500's with big block motors.

Mike,

Even the new Jeep's today offer a power dome hood. I do like it better than the fiberglass hood I have but right now no intentions of selling it.  I may just paint both hoods and change them up periodically.
