I just called SASCO to see if I could get a '61 Lark hood for my mildly customized '62 Lark. I discovered that the '61 Lark hoods sold out last year... I even had transport back to Nebraska:(

I'll call tomorrow afternoon for a better 62 Lark hood than I have right now... I'm just bummed out right now:(

Well, anyone know of a good used 61 Lark hood in the midwest (IA/NE area)? Never hurts to ask:)

Jeff,
Are you the Jeff T. from Lincoln? If you are I have a 62 hood you can have. I probably could bring it up to you.

What I often wonder about is when I look up a part number on the SASCO website and it comes back as available and having a price only to hear back from them that it is NLA. Is it really NLA or is it CFI (can't find it)

NLA CFI or SOL it all means the same.

I wonder how it gets in the computer as being available in the first place.

Do you know how SASCO's inventory works in relation to the website John? For example, just ordered the upper and lower grille pieces for my 1957 Packard Clipper. The computer shows them available and gave a price. The sheet with my shippment says NLA.

With SASCO and SI if it doesn't show online call them.The have a lot of items that are not listed in inventory. NOS sheet metal and trim items are getting scarce though. I wouldn't throw out anything that can be repaired or straightened, It may be all we have to work with in the future.
