68 hood on a 72???

will it work? I want to put a 68 pickup hood on my 72 K5. I had a 68 pickup next to a 72 pickup and they look like it will swap...I just want to make sure before i fork out the money for one.

I'm almost positive they are the same. Chevy changed body style in 73 though.

They should bolt up. The 68 hood has a sloped front edge and the 70-72 is more straight up and down.

1968


1972

yea, I like the 68 better, I was just wanting to make sure. I know GMC hoods require the entire front clip and core support.

For the 68 hood to fit the 72, you have to change the core support and if I remember right, the fenders too. The slope on the hood is way different and won't line up correctly. The 67-68 hoods are unique to themselves, but 69-72 will all interchange. For verification, check out www.67-72chevytrucks.com
