Larry...I don't have the numbers available, but I tried this years ago...The Pontiac hood was about 7" longer than the chevy, and the shape was all wierd at the front.
What I did with my Poncho was make filler panels to eliminate the grooves where the chrome stripes went. It came out pretty nice and I had no problems punching a bunch of louvers in it...
If you are looking for a Pontiac hood, I would check with Memory Lane in Sunland, Ca.(800)281-9273...ask for Tony
