Does anyone know of any sites where I can purchase a 442 style hood for a 1981 Cutlass. I found 1 site but they are on backorder for like 4 months.

Thanks.

Check with VFN, the manufacturer. See when they are planning on making more. Companies almost never have big items like these in stock, they will be dropped shipped by the manufacturer.

No such thing as a 442 hood, ram air hood is a W25 hood, not a W30 hood as people also state...
The VFN one is very bulky, common complaint... the US Body one is more sleeker and lower profile.

Yes, it was a W-25 option on the 70 to 72 Cutlass with the forced air option. Some of us prefer the scoop angle on the VFN. There has been a few fitment issues with the US body source hoods. Not saying they are junk, expect possible work needing done. There used to be a member on here who worked for VFN, it is his car in that picture.
