Default Hood differences between 58',59'60

I am in need of a good hood for my 60. Are there differences between the 58,59, and 60? Will one work on the other? Still in search. Mine has rusted trough in some strange places. Not over the carb. We may have to fire-up the welder.

The hoods for all three years are identical.

Check with Carl Heller ~ partsetal for a hood. Carl has a lot of Squarebirds parts, including parts cars.

Default 58-60 hoods

Thank you both gentlemen. My odds just became much better. My hood has rusted through and then water ran into the back support/frame work and ran down to the nose. From there it proceeds straight down into the radiator and shroud.

Just a thought in that you are getting a new hood Look for some good hood hinges unless yours now have good tension. Over the years these hinges lose there temper and the ability to keep the hood open all the way.
