    It will fit but it has some extra character lines. To be 100% correct you need one from a '62 or '63. Don't know if this is of concern to you or not.

      N8N/Nate - Are you sure? I know that the cowl change came for the 1961 model year, but the front/nose panel changed between 1961 and 1962. I just don't remember if the contour of the front of the hood is the same for those two different nose pieces. I don't think they are the same. A lot of things for a 1961 Lark are one year items, like bumpers and A/C.

        I agree with Gary, I do not think the 61 hood will fit a 62, the front nose and gill are different

          The hoods look different, but the contours of the front panel look the same. Look at these pics:



          And



          The contour lines on the hood are different, but the shape looks the same (at least from pictures I've been able to find).[8D]

            I have a 62 hood if you want, and I too am not terribly far from you.
