Re: Caprice hood

these guy's; if you call their tech support, or email them, they have exact measurements of hood lengths, hood pinning locations and depth from cowl, width of deck lid and reveal, etc..

Re: Caprice hood

The ElCo body shares a lot of components with the Chevelle/Malibu line, but not the Caprice/Impala. I beleive the hoods are the same from 1977-85 for the B-body line.
