Whether you drive your third-generation Corvette around town or visit the drag strip, you’ll need to access the engine compartment at some point.

Top Flight Automotive sells thousands of direct-fit Corvette parts for repairs. If your hood release cable gives you trouble, you can turn to us for genuine replacement products. Safely lift open your C3’s hood using our upgrades that work for budgets large and small.

The Purpose of Corvette Hood Cables

Chevrolet Corvette hood release cables run from the cabin to the engine compartment. When you pull the hood release lever, hood release cables tell front-end latches to open. Without this installation, it would be impossible for you to release the hood latch and open the hood for independent repairs and general maintenance jobs.

Does My C3 Corvette Hood Cable Need Service?

Some C3 vehicles were assembled more than 50 years ago. You can tell if factory connections are in working order by testing your hood release lever to see how it responds. The indicators mentioned below are telltale signs your hood cable needs replacement:

  1. The hood latch refuses to release when you pull the handle.
  2. Your vehicle’s hood release handle is cracking.
  3. The hood release opens with minimal force on the handle.
