Hood differences

Post by dynchel on Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:44 am

Does anyone know If there any real differences between the hoods for 73/77 chevelles? Reason I ask is I just got a hood from a 73 el camino and the underhood bracing is different (a lot beefier over the air cleaner) than what I currently have on my 74 base chevelle. I'm mostly concerened with it fitting properly I don't know if it's because it's first year (before they cost cut it?) or because it's from a el camino. Any thoughts would be apperciated. Blow Up

Noses interchange and so does the hood. Minor differences are in the bumper area (the way they mount). But they all interchange.

Yeah, it's a good thing that front end parts interchange. My '75 Elco project has 'Malibu fenders & hood, and a '77 grille. One door is a '77, and the other is a '75 . And the interior is all '77. Front suspension is '77. "parts is parts" Very Happy

yeah i know, my 74 has 76 doors (from 2 different cars) a core support from a 73 chevelle, a cross member and front sway bar from a 73 Monte Carlo. The interior is 76/77 cutlass. The 1/4 panels were new reproduction, and now i have a 73 elcamino hood. Cool
