    Radiator plus other things are in the way. You would have to move alot back IF you could. Or move the nose forward if you could. Rads on vettes lay way back to almost touching the engine so the hood can open as it does..

    You can do it with almost any vehicle, the problem is having the hinges made to raise and lower the hood correctly. It is possible!
