Default L-88, LT1 Long Hood

I may have stated this incorrectly. What I was looking for may best be described as a 1974 big block LS4 hood.
If anyone has parted out a 74 with a big block power plant then I believe the hood would have been the style I am seeking.
Sorry for any confusion.

I am not looking for one that needs a bunch of repair.
I am looking for one that can be or is stripped of paint and can be restored.
I am able to drive within about 150 miles of my home at 18045 to pick a good candidate up.
Please supply pictures and prices for me to review.
Thank you for your assistance.
David Howard

I have some long hoods. I think I have L88 long and another one. I’ll check, they’re in the back of the garage.

What does a 1974 big block hood look like ? I looked at pictures on google and the pictures that came up look like the hood looks the same as a small block except for having 454 on the side. So is there a size difference from a small block hood ?

I think you are correct. I am going to bag this search for now and do more homework. There were only L-48, L-82, and LS-4 available so I have to check and see if there were different hoods or one hood for all three.
Thank you.
David

73 and later Vettes all had the same hoods regardless of engines.

I have a long hood L88 but I donít know if it was for a 68-72 with wiper door removed or a 73 and later long hood. Some have said that the corners are different and wonít match up because the 68-72 used the SS trim on the fenders to level out with doors and hood. Is there anyway to tell by looking at the hood corners? I never put this hood on my 69 and itís in for paint this winter. I would like to help David out but want to make sure it fits his 74.

Thanks!

Pictures sometimes help. Can you post a picture ?

David; I know the factory 73-75 hoods are somewhat taller than 70-72 and have a vacuum operated functional hood scoop.

Thanks to all for helping. I am going to stick with the stock 74 hood that I have as it will clear what I want to do.
Thank you for looking.
David
