Everyone likes a little chrome. It twinkles and shines and catches our eyes. For the past few years True Connections has had the reproduction '70-72 Chevelle and El Camino SS dash available, but it consisted of silver paint for the trim. Recently the chrome gods have shined their light upon us, and now '70-72 Chevelle and El Camino owners can enjoy reproduction dashes trimmed with chrome. Actually, the entire dash has been dipped in a molten vat of chrome, detailed in black, and shipped to the True Connections warehouse. Now your drive time will shine.

Grille-mounted air ducts are arguably one of the most effective means of shoving dense, cool air into an engine, and for racers on the NASCAR and drag racing circuit in the mid '60s, the easiest route to ram air was to swap a headlight for a hand-fabricated scoop, ducting air straight to the carburetor. Now you can use the same technology on your muscle car with new bolt-in Headlight Air Scoops and Screens from Spectre. Round scoops replace any standard 5.75-inch round headlight with a 6061-T6 aircraft-grade spun aluminum funnel-perfect for permanently swapping out the high beams for air ducts on quad-headlight cars, and they include an adapter to allow direct installation with a factory headlight bezel. Designed for use with Spectre's four-inch Profab Muscle Car Cold Air Intake Kits, the funnels can be combined with several different air ducts and air box packages to create a unique, stylish, and functional system that will dramatically drop air inlet temperatures and in turn increase overall horsepower.
