    I am in the stages of restoring my 69 Skylark Convertible.

    If you have a good set of Headers for my 350, I am interested.

    If you have a good GS steel hood with inserts, I am interested.

    Thanks !

    Hi Guys,

    I am still in search of a hood for my 69 Skylark.

    As I continue to look I was wondering if the hoods have an interchangeable year, in other words, will the 68 hood fit a 69?

    I see more availability on the 70 and 71 but I am pretty sure those will not fit a 69.

    I also considered the fiberglass route but am leary on the craftsmanship. In my experience fiberglass hoods tend to torque and for some reason never look right. Perhaps I haven't had a quality fiberglass hood yet but I have had a few in my time. Just like everything else, I have learned you need to use the real thing if you want it to look right.

    Please let me know if you guys know where I can get my hands on one. The engine, tranny, front brakes, radiator, starter, alternator and headers are finally in the car and the body is the next item on the list.

    I am in California 91350 so if you do come across one or know where I should be looking your help would greatly be appreciated.

    Many thanks for your feedback

    Erick

    Hey Erick! are you not interested in the 69 GS hood I have? TRY HERE: http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.php?263528-69-GS-hood

    I am willing to listen to reasonable offers and perhaps we can discuss shipping options?


    I've built relatively inexpensive hood crates and have had good success in shipping using DHL freight.

    [HR][/HR]Hi Wheelz

    Thanks for yor reply and offer.

    Question, how much work do you think will take to get the nose of the hood straight?

    Overall it looks just like what I am looking for.

    Let me know what your package deal would be, crate and all.

    Thanks again!
