It keeps saying application crash. I couldnt get the pic off my craigslist app so i googled 07 gt500. Its got the slanted pillars so i dont know if that would screw me up right there since i got the vertical pillars? ill try to get pic when i get to work. Hood is same as the pics from google i added though.

Yeah the GT500 hoods do look pretty mean. I remember looking into this before and found some posts about our V6 and the GT hoods being interchangeable but not with the GT500s.

Something about how it would technically bolt right on without any problems but that when you would try to close it that it would leave a space in between the hood and bumper. I think I remember reading that the fix to this would require changing bumpers also. Doable but sounds like a lot of work.

It will bolt on but it will leave a gap across the middle where the GT500 rounded grill would go - and your grill goes straight across.

Some guys don't mind it, I think it looks bad --- but it is your car and your taste.

+1, I'd say go for a hood made for the V6/GT body

That's amazing looking. Looks like the hood I had on my '67.

Re: hood for my pony

Its not a perfect match but if you want the style hood from the GT500 then it seems like it should be a good fit for you.
