Comparing the hood ornaments is a good idea. Let me think on that, I was thinking in terms of keeping my hood, and looking for a '40 std hood to work. yes, my hood is the same on the other side... The hot rod gods have been very good to me... anyone else want to comment on whether there is a difference in the radius at the top between a '39 deluxe and '40 standard hood? I don't have a '40 hood to compare directly, it could just be an optical illusion.
