I finally found and bought a suburban (1950), which Ive been looking for, and had it delivered Saturday afternoon. Saturday morning I got the call from the driver, I found with Uship, informing me the loose hood had become unstrapped and fallen off somewhere east of the Pennsylvania border. He did backtrack a few miles but didnt have any idea when it fell off and wasnt able to find it.

I wanted to check with some of the local members for suggestion on where I might be able to find a replacement hood in the MD, VA DC area. Any suggestions would be helpful,

Welcome to the gang, and we all can't wait to see some photos of your new project.

Is your suburban a chevy or GMC? That will help us find a hood for you.

I know of a couple trucks local here mostly chevy that will have the hood you are looking for. I am about 4 hours south of NVA.

First and foremost, WELCOME!

There are several junkyards in the area and I am sure we can find a hood to your liking. I am sure Frankie has a great canidate for you.
