Motor City Mold (MCM)
(419) 843-1719

Brief Description: Motor City Mold hoods, more commonly referred to in the Corvette community as MCM hoods, still leads in design and ease of installation. C5 and C6 Corvettes fitted with MCM hoods regularly place First in shows throughout the U.S. and are popular on the racetrack due to their light weight and contribution to increased speed. The signature, rear facing, functional vent exhausts excess heat as well as turbulent air that would normally travel under the car.

Trademark Features: MCM vacuum-bagged composite hoods use high-grade carbon-fiber, resulting in a dimensionally and structurally sound part that saves between 6.5 and 10 pounds, depending on model. All versions of the MCM hoods are available with the center clearcoated, showing the carbon-fiber interior, a popular enhancement since the arrival of the ZR1, with its use of exposed carbon-fiber.

Quote From Company: "MCM: the most talked-about hoods on the Corvette Forum."
