    Default 68-69 Custom 4" cowl induction hood

    Guys... I picked this up today... Its a very nicely done, 4 inch cowl induction hood for a 68 or 69 Lark/GS. The hood is steel, the cowl is fibreglass. The man was a body man and did a very nice job of blending the two. There are a few minor chips and dings here'n there but overall, this hood is 02COOOL! $275 plus s&h. Wheelz, Tampa Bay

    Very cool! And a great price! I wish I had an older Buick to put it on.

    I would think...a safe, secure, solid CRATE would be my first concern...I've shipped hoods before no problem..however, this hood is about 4" higher than a standard hood...a corrugated box is not safe with that fibreglass cowl....so a custom crate would HAVE TO be built....prolly $75 - 100 for lumber and materials. Once thats done, we would have to consult a shipper for rates. I would guess, prolly around $130 or so. This hood, a crate and shipping to your door could be around $500. Dont hold me to that, its JUST A GUESStimate!!!... Wheelz, Tampa Bay

    Just in case a potential buyer is wondering how a 4" cowl looks on a 69 GS.

    Sorry Wheelz, I've already got a "perf" hood hanging in the garage. I DO like the cowl look better, but I know shipping is a bear, and I've no place to hang a 2nd hood. Someone will take this though, I'm sure.
