First, thanks for checking it out. Here's the situation, I have no idea what it's worth? My father past away and my brother and I were cleaning out the old gearhead's garage and found the hood and an engine compartment cover/hood (will have that next week when I go back, couldn't fit both in my car). He had a 72 back in the 80's. I put the hood on craigslist locally for $2500 on the advice of a car restoration guy I know but have no idea if that's realistic that's why I posted it here. Let me know...
I think your price is a bit too high. I don't need a hood, and I hope yours sells for your asking price as it will benefit the owners market. But I think it's too high. Put it on eaby w/a reserve and see what the market says... Good Luck w/it...
One thing to know about hoods is that the earlier cars had a slightly different bend than the later ones because (I assume) the shape of the fenders is slightly different. When did they change? I don't know but #1549 has the early shape.
I found this out when I discovered that the nose of my original hood was pretty much rusted out. I decided to replace it with one of Wilkinson's carbon fiber hoods. When I installed it it was clear that it didn't fit properly: there was a "bulge" that peaked at about 3/16" of an inch above the line of the fenders about 12 to 18" back from the nose. Steve took it back (he thought maybe it was warped) and I bought a new "factory" hood. That didn't fit either by pretty much the same amount. I thought maybe it's just that my car is different and kept it. One reason ZONKEY's hood is black is that it doesn't show as much. I figured it could be dealt with later. Wilkinson's factory hood was about $2500 in 2003 (Steve gave me a good deal on it, list was much higher)
Then I found out that it wasn't my car. Ken Green got hold of a hood from an earlier car and it didn't fit his car. I thought maybe it would fit mine and drove over to his house, put it on, and it fit perfectly. I have both hoods and could measure the difference if anyone is interested. Maybe Ken will chime in with what model his car is. Ken's hood is on my car now and is painted yellow.
