This?

Yup, you see the merit but theres something missing, I just can't wrap a thought around it. There needs to be angle or something, hell, I don't know, it's there though... can I doodle on that pic?

Put a 1973 grill on it. The feature lines of the standard hood never matched up to the base '71/72 grill (granted, the grill itself doesn't match anything, IMO) to begin with, but the vertical lamps of both '73 grills perfectly match the feature lines of the standard hood:

Enlarging the nostrils a bit might help too. Doodle at your heart's content. Wasn't my picture to start with.

No idea; the photo is from a website referencing the car and the owner. Only photo that I've ever seen of it.

It sends chills down my spine every time I see it. The front end cannot be any more perfect than that - and I'm not usually a fan of the blackout look. The flat hood is essential - a NACA hood would absolutely ruin it.

You are right, that front end is just perfect, I love it too..

I remember it was featured in a magazine, but I can't find it at all.. That car is perfect with the standard hood, blacked out grille.. I think I will go that way with mine!
