70 Cowl Induction Hood

I recently bought this cowl induction hood from a guy locally. I plan on putting it on my car regardless but I am curious what it is worth and if any can confirm that it is an original hood and not a repop.

I'm no expert on repops, but that looks original and should clean up well. Congrats. Let's see what some other say.

65 Chevelle SS 283; Powerglide; Protect-o-Plate; matching numbers; danube blue; two-tone blue interior; 51k documented miles.

Re: 70 Cowl Induction Hood

I don't want to sound like an ass but you said you recently purchased a hood.

My guess it is worth what you paid for it.

Now tell what you paid and someone will tell you if you got a good deal.

Would you still say that if someone paid $10,000.00 for one?
People do pay a lot more (or less) than things are worth all the time.

I paid $300.00 for a nice original with C I door but that was years ago.

Lol I know I got a good deal I'm just trying to find out how good. Guy was parting out a car, I got the hood, a rust free trunk lid and floor pans for $500. He actually just cut off what was left of the back of the car. So I got from package tray back minus quarters, bumper and wheel well on one side.

Re: 70 Cowl Induction Hood

I checked out your pictures on fototroll and it is definitely an original hood. 500 bucks is a good fair deal. Much better fit than going with a repop.

Looks like the early edition of factory hood with the smaller insulation openings...

The third hood is the OP's and I think it's the later hood with the larger triangles.

Below is an early production hood and the second is the later production hood with the larger triangle insulation areas and added creases to help the hood fold in a crash.

Re: 70 Cowl Induction Hood

Funny to see the hoods, WHY. When I had my Camino in Chicago at the MCACN show. I just parked beside a "Black" one owner LS-6, I get out of my El Camino and lift the Hood and this guy Dennis is standing about 10--15 feet away , He says nice El Camino, Looks like it was built very early in 1970! ( WOW, WTF ! This guy from 15 feet away can tell you the Appx. build date, He is Good)
I said Wadda YA mean, He says it has the small triangles in the standard Domed hood. ( his 70 had the large triangles,Domed Hood) Then he explained the Early and Late 1970 hoods.
Ya learn sumpen new all the time!
