Hello! First off, I really hope I'm in the right place. :) I'm making a replica vehicle from the movie The Road Warrior. One of the vehicles has a '66 Bonneville hood and grill. Does anyone happen to have some technical info (dimensions) of the hood? I need to know the length and width. I basically need to put a '66 Bonneville hood on a '70 Fairlane 500 car. Please see the picture for the vehicle in question. I hope someone can help me out, and that you like my project!
Thank you,
Max

I have a '66 Catalina which uses the same hood/grille. When I'm over at the house this weekend, I will try to remember to measure.

For length... Do you need it from the center point of the hood? Or the corners?

Thank you! Could you measure from the corners *and* the center line?

I really appreciate it!

Ok, rough measurements (mind you my hood is a work bench, so it's covered with "stuff" making it difficult to get a measurement down to a millimeter),

Side of hood, from point at the back end of the hood, to the front where it curls under: 53"
Middle of hood, down the ridge: 58"

Side to side (I actually measured between the headlight housings: 61" - 61.5"
