i have a 1974 nova that i want to buy a 2 inch cowl hood for. a friend of mine has a 68-72 goodmark cowl hood for a great price. will this hood fit properly? if you can post any research you find or know so from experience that would be a big help . :D and just being curious..if it does fit, then why do companies also make 73-74 nova hoods? :confused:

The lip on the front of the 68-72 hood is wider than the 73-74. This is the lip that the front molding fits on. You can use the 72 hood, but you must either remove some of the lip to fit your 74 molding or use the 72 molding.
The 72 molding will not match up exactly with the 73 headlight eyebrow moldings. The 72 molding also comes close to the 74 plastic grille. If your hood is adjusted a little low or you slam the hood it can break the grille.
