    Thanks for your reply Kevin
    Actually I am going for the "Looks" , but with one that follows the 72 Lemans Endura lines ( as pictured above )

    Well from the sounds of it somebody made that hood by combining a '72 LeMans hood with a '68-70 GTO hood so you probably aren't going to find that hood anywhere.

    Best bet is to have a competent body man make it. My guess is your options will be limited in anything else if you want to retain the front end that you have on there now.

    CammerJeff might have some other insight. He seems to be the resident Pontiac expert.

    That's not a Lemans endura hood or front end, that front end is fiberglass. The endura front end (T-47) hood for a '71-72 Lemans is worth about $3500-5500 if you can find one that isn't rusted. What someone did is probably graft a section of a '68-70 GTO hood on a '71-72 Lemans hood in that picture.

    The standard '68-70 hood won't line up with the '71-72 front end as the bulge in the '68-70 hood doesn't taper off like the photo.

    I got that feeling when I couldn't find any on the net. I guess I have to graft that section, or replace the whole front end
    Thank you Sir
