All the 80's Malibu's had the same hoods I believe, it shouldn't cost you too much money, I only paid $20 for a strait rust free hood for my Caprice at the local junk yard.

Ever Consider A Fiberglass Replacement?

I know it's a few extra bucks, but you'll never rust out again.

You guys will like this: I paid $20 for a pair of 15x6 steel wheels with barely used P225 75 studded snow tires on them. $75 for a 8.5" 10 bolt posi drum to drum from a police car, and they removed it for me. $15 for a strait rust free fender and inner fender with all the trim. $10 for a 120 MPH speedometer out of a police car.

A hood from any 78-87 Malibu, any door/wagon configuration should fit. And yes, there is likely a few in the junkyards. They probably all have a crease in the ridge down the middle though.

You can buy reproduction hoods for pretty cheap, just do a google search, or get a chevy magazine, lots of em out there.
