    I am looking for a hood that came without the hood ornament.

    If someone who has a hood wants to trade for my 65 Skylark hood with hood ornament, I would be open to that. My hood ornament is in good shape with no pitting, other than the tri-shield colors faded.

    Why not just weld up the 2 holes?

    Brian: Even if the 2 holes are welded up, the hood peak where the emblem goes is flattened out.

    Joe: Sorry, I don't want to separate the ornament from the hood.

    I think it's from a 65 Special.

    65gs76limited,
    The pictured hood is either off a '65 Skylark / GS or a '65 Special with deluxe trim.
    Note it has the two holes for a hood ornament.

    I thought that so at first but those are for the letter " I" . I had to do a double take.

    Sorry for the confusion. My bad! I am incorrect , the pictured hood is for a Special.

    Yep. Holes are for the I in Buick. Hood ornament holes are further up the center.
