Wanted: 1968-72 L88 Hood- Big Block

Looking for the above item; hope you can help. It can be nearly new, or after-market product.

Kind Regards,

Hi, Bob,

In response....either a 1968-72 L88 Hood (preferred) OR a Big Block hood for the same years. It can be either an OEM or an after-market product. Sorry for any confusion, and I do appreciate the opportunity to clarify the request.

Regards,

Don and Kathie

Hi, Don and Chris,

Actually, no. (LOL) I'm on a "mission" for my younger brother Bob who has 2 Vettes at the moment and is looking for this part. This is the guy who has Vettes stacked in his garage!!

Hope you kids have a lovely holiday season with family and friends!

Regards,

Don and Kathie

Wink

Don & Kathie:
Go after-market! An original L-88 hood is like finding gold plated diamonds & more expensive! An L-88 hood rise definitely gives more clearance than the standard big-block hood. So depending on how much room you need should make the difference of which one you should purchase.

and Bob: You do already have one! It's on your '67 BB coupe!!

Don And Kathie,

Best place to find this is Corvettes at Carlisle. MANY to choose from. But that is in August.
