Ho Mike, sorry for not answering sooner.. I'm interested in the '68 Bonneville hood if you still have it. I'm not sure how close it would be to the '67 hood but I should be able to make it work.. PM me with details

Thanks

The '67 & '68 Bonneville hoods were totally different.

The '67 had a body color panel between the leading edge of the hood & the grille.

The '68 did not.

It's hood ran all the way down to the front bumper.

Depending on how close the shape of the rest of the hood compares, you may be able to saw off the entire front of the '68 hood to fit.

They're not that close. Besides having the 1967 side edges bent up, the peaked area is substantially wider at the front edge where he would cut off the the 1968 hood to 1967 length. and the peaked area is a little taller on the 1968 than the 1967, just like the real cars.

I was afraid of that.

I had forgotten about those "bent up" sides on the '67 hood.

Looks like a lot more work than it would be worth in my opinion.

Cutting the Front of to hood off wouldn't be a problem. The sides could be scored and bent up. Would it be 100% accurate? No.. But having no hood is the alternative..I guess... another would be to sell as is...LOL

Personally, I would just hold off & look for a replacement '67 hood on ebay.

Stuff like this comes up all of the time.

I've had to wait for a considerable amount of time for a part occasionally, but I always seem to manage to find what I need.

You may have to pay a bit for it, but you need to consider which is more important to you, a few dollars, or your time.
