    Corvette bonnet

    I can't get access to my Corvette at present for a measure up. Could somebody possibly tell me the maximum length and maximum width of a C3 bonnet? Mine is a '68.
    Thank you.

    I can do it a little bit later this afternoon if you like? - 68' is shorter due to wiper flap!

    This is with big block hood - 45" max at rear of hood - narrowing to 37" towards front of hood. Overall length to point is 55" to 55 1'2" (difficult to measure in a straight line 'coz of hood contour) L88 hood is much the same except raised centre section is 1/2" longer which protudes over the wiper flap. Obviously a '73 onwards is longer.

    Need to know if a bonnet will fit into my daily, which it just will! Don't worry it's not being sold.

    I've got a '71 vette, Funny thing I was told regarding 'vette hoods, doors etc is, that because they are glass, if you swap one hood from one vette to another, they are almost certainly not going to fit. Anyone else heard that about fibreglass parts?

    True enough Johnny Boy - odly enough the s/h aftermarket L88 styled hood on my '68 fitted better than the stock BB hood!
