My Hood has the notch in it as is indicated to be a GM Hood. But it does not have any stamping in the location you guys have stamps. Does this still make it a GM NOS hood? Can this difference between GM and repro be confirmed by anyone else as I guess there are several manufacturers of these repro hoods now. Please let me know what you all think. Thanks in advance

My GM ZL2 hood doesn't have a number stamped there either.

John - Thanks for the reply. I was also hoping others might have been able to look at their known repro hoods to see if any of the repro manufacturers had now manufactured any so that they now looked like the original GM in the same area as the pics show or if my hood was in fact 100% sure an original NOS GM.... ;D

my friend with a white 69 copo (yenko) was surprized that I found where this number was located,  and went and found a number on his original hood! even new guys can contribute

Just thought I'd throw this out. When I was ordering my 69 396-375 the salesman asked if I wanted a fresh air hood. I didn't know what it was , but said ok. It cost 79 dollars!

My GM hood purchased from Classic Industries in the mid '90s.
No numbers or letters.

For that price I hope you ordered a couple of spares!!     ;D

i have read that the ZL 2 cowl induction gave 10 HP. i believe thats in the "camaro untold secrets" book. all Z/28 options were engineered by GM for trans am racing. the spoilers also were engineered so that they worked.
