I have a 83 hurst olds and want to put a cowl hood, I found a hood on a cutlass supreme. Does anyone know if a cutlass supreme hood is the same as a hurst hood?
Thanks

Yes. The ONLY difference between a Hurst/Olds hood from 83/84, besides being a different part number, is the lack of the center hole under the scoop is not punched on a Hurst/Olds hood (otherwise it would leak water onto the air cleaner). As far as fitment goes, it's of no difference at all.

Keep the original hood safe, you have one of the more valuable G bodies, don't hack it up too much. A few of us don't care for cowl hoods especially on an Olds. I prefer the old W-25 copy with straight scoops. Problem with a big hood, everyone will want to race you and stock, everything built now is faster than you.
