I have a 1956 Pickup with an Apache hood. The hood doesn't latch, It doesn't seem to line up right. The guy I bought the pickup from kept it closed with a bungee cord. Is there a way to make it work?

no luck, the shape of the 58/9 hood is different than the 5-7 hood, will never fit, the side curves suit the different fender shapes

I have a 56 GMC hood not doing anything.
I'll keep a slow eye out in the parts wanted section...


Give me ambiguity
or give me something else

Bart - I didn't look at your pic at first, that isn't an "Apache" hood [58-62], it's a 57 hood, and you should be able to make it work right, the latch mechanism may be frapped or the hinges may need adjusting

ok, thanks. I'll try adjusting it again. I'll make my son help this time.
