Looking to put a 1972 Nova hood on a 1973 Nova.

Asked by Apr 26, 2016 at 10:03 AM about the 1973 Chevrolet Nova

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I currently have a 1973 nova, 4 door base sedan, with a crumpled hood. I
want to replace it, but can only get a hold of a 1972 nova hood. Will this be an
ok conversion? Or will I need additional parts to make this work? Thank you!

2 Answers

Thank you! Will it require new hood hinges though for the additional parts? Or will just the lip molding do?

Yes, it fits with no modifications
